What is everyone saying?

Just love your shop. I visited for the first time yesterday (I live in Rotorua). Great selection of beautiful patterns and yarn. Now I've seen the yarn in the 'flesh' I will definitely purchase in the future.


Yesterday was the first time I bought wool from your shop and the first time I have attempted knitting a garment in a very long time. Thank you for your patience ensuring I had the right quantity of wool. I was most impressed with the range of wool and price points you had on offer. I know it won't be the last I time I visit and it was lovely to greeted so warmly.


I can't believe that the second part of my order was completed about  11.30 yesterday morning and the parcel was delivered to me at school today.  It was put on my desk about 1.45 and could have arrived earlier.Absolutely great service from you and the courier.


I'm thrilled with the yarn I bought from you.  The colours are lovely and very true to your website photographs.  I visited Wild and Woolly yarns many times when I lived in Auckland and Wild and Woolly was in Devonport.  Buying on line is not the same of course as buying yarn in a wool shop but it's good to know that in this case anyway the colours shown online are accurate.


Thank you so much for my order. Very happy with how fast my order was delivered. I will certainly order again with you


You have such a beautiful shop and your care and attention of me when recently shopping with you was exemplary!  Good luck with your new venture and no doubt I will see you again soon!

    Manufacturers tend to emphasize how light and airy the yarns are. But what is the most interesting is that blown yarns have no twist.

    Understanding Yarn Weights - Why they are so important...

    Yarn weight refers to the thickness of a particular yarn. It is measured in wraps per inch (WPI) or by its international number system which ranges from 0 (lace yarn) all the way up to 7 (jumbo yarn). Different weights of yarn have their own sets of advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to understand how each type of yarn can be used effectively.
