Notes

This is a mill shop in the truest sense of the word - as although there is a small shop area, much of the yarn is warehoused.

There is a good supply of luxury yarns, and books, and crafts such as felting are catered for.

This store closed in 2015. A shame, as it produced really interesting yarn.

I love Texere, simply because it has such a wide range of yarns, from the very expensive and luxurious to the workaday cheaper yarns, and a great deal in between- in short, something for every knitter and every budget. Their own brand yarns are good quality and value and there is a large range of luxury yarns from manufacturers including Noro and Artesano.

There are lots and lots of patterns and also books for knitting and other fibre crafts and textile arts.

Please be aware that you are displaying the wrong opening times. I have just checked the website and the mill is open Monday - Friday 9-5 and only four weekends per year, the next being 6-7 September 2008, unsure of times.

I went here for the first time just a few weeks ago, and my word, it is big.

The books, luxury yarns, other craft supplies are all in a few rooms to the side of the mill, and there is a good selection in the small space. Here you will also find the sofa, and the drinks machine.

However, the main attraction is the mill. I was amazed to find that they just let you wander around their warehouse, filling your bag with yarn. There is an excellent selection, and a good variety of fibres. A lot of it is coned, making it suitable for weaving and machine knitting, as well as hand knitting and crochet.

I really was impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The receptionist mentioned that two ladies had flown up to Leeds/Bradford from Southampton to visit. I can well see why
