Based in Barnard Castle, nestled between County Durham and Teesdale, we create, source and supply wool products that are sustainable, colourful, quality and (wherever possible) local.  We have a great customer base and can be found not only in our shop, but at some of the craft fairs around the North East of England.


Here at Woolmouse we pride ourselves on our British wools and yarns. We currently stock West Yorkshire Spinners, Rowan, Intercontinental Yarns, New Lanark Mills, King Cole, Rico and James C Brett. Ranges start with basic acrylics moving up to mid range mixtures. Specialist ranges include Alpaca pure & mixed, Pure Blue Faced Leicester, Kid Silk, Hemp and Yak.



We stock a range of cottons and poly cottons to suit all budgets. We currently stock cottons & poly cottons from Empee Silks, a selection of Tilda, Art Gallery Fabrics, Fabulous Batiks and a selection of Liberty Fat Quarters. We also carry a selection of Bias Binding to compliment our range.
