The Wool Merchant

At The Wool Merchant (Dart Studio Yarns) we pride ourselves on stocking high quality natural fibres and we strive to avoid synthetic products whenever possible. Through our shop we aim to support local, traditional and artisan producers whilst at the same time stocking a wide range of Fairtrade yarns and buttons from further afield.

We are also a Rowan At store which means we stock the majority of their ranges.



About the Wool Merchant

At the Wool Merchant, all corners of the British Isles are represented. From Scotland we have Jamieson’s of Shetland in a stunning range of shades for Fairisle and other colourwork. We have Donegal Tweeds from Ireland. Blacker and Frangipani yarns from Cornwall and John Arbon from Exmoor.

Manos del Uruguay yarns and Injabulo Buttons are fine examples of Fairtrade in action supporting groups of ladies to be independent.

We also stock the ever-popular Knit Pro range of needles, hooks, and accessories, a good range of pattern support, and a growing selection of books.

We are compiling a list of classes and workshops, so let us know if you are interested and we will keep you informed.

We are open 7 days a week and you’ll find us in the Craft Centre at The Shops at Dartington.
