Business Name: Thistle

This family run shop (they have a sister shop in Portsmouth called Ann Louise – see the separate entry) is small but full to bursting wool shops with wool for every budget, needles, patterns, accessories. The staff are always friendly and willing to help. This one is bigger than the Portsmouth shop and has patchwork fabrics as well as knitting supplies. And, most importantly they have the most amazingly ridiculous sales – I left with a bin bag full of wool! They also have an online shop.
