Great range and quality
Jul 2020 • Family
Amazing shop has a large range of wool types and colours. Shop owner Adam was happy to help with looking at patterns and finding the exact one i wanted. Having started crocheting recently, this shop was perfect to appreciate the range of projects and things that I can do with crochet.

What a Lovely Shop!
Sep 2019
When I travel I try to find locally sourced knitting wool as a memory of my trip. This shop run by mother and son Marie and Adam is a perfect little gem. I found some beautiful Shetland wool and better still a warm welcome. If knitting is your passion this shop is a must see.

Fantastic shop with excellent service!
Apr 2019 • Solo
We are so lucky to have this treasure of a shop in Nairn! I have visited many times and always been given fantastic service and great advice from Marie and all of the staff. The shop is stocked with a great supply of wool, fabric and craft supplies beautifully laid out and easily accessed. The shop and groups are very well attended locally but also by people who travel considerable distances too. Highly recommended!

Holiday visit
May 2019 • Solo
Having lived in Spain for a few years now, I came to nairn to get some supplies while on a visit to family in the hope to take supplies back to Spain The mother and son run shop are extremely well stocked of a variety of specialist wools and fabrics, along with excellent knowledge of ways to substitute wool. No question was unanswered and they even offered a postal service to Spain if I needed more supplies.
This was one of the best experiences I have had with topping up my craft supplies

Wonderful wool and craft shop in nairn
May 2019 • Solo
I have recently had another visit to the wonderful wool shop in nairn.
There is a great stock of yarns, exciting patchwork fabrics and craft kits to make yourself or give as presents. Also there are many examples of locally made crafts to purchase. A good range of buttons, threads, trimmings etc.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Highly recommended.

Brilliant shop. Very friendly and helpful.

What a lovely shop to visit. A real asset to the town as good wool and craft shops are so thin on the ground these days. This shop is so well stocked with excellent quality wools, yarns, fabrics and just about everything for a wide selection of crafts. The staff are so friendly, knowledgeable and willing to help and advise. Ready made items on sale too all knitted or made by local craft people. The knitting and craft groups are an absolute bonus. This week being mental health week especially I can honestly say that attending the groups has been really beneficial to me personally. I never leave the shop without a smile on my face ( my chuckle muscles are well exercised! )
The first night I attended I was feeling really anxious and almost left half way through the evening, I'm so glad I stayed. It really turned me around and I would therefore encourage others to join a group. It's great therapy! To all crafty visitors to this area I would say Nairn Wool Shop should be an absolute must on your agenda! Happy crafting! 😊👍🏻

I have shopped here and attended knitting groups for some time. The groups are very friendly and no problem is too much trouble for Marie to sort out. I know people come from far and wide to visit this shop and its excellent selection of stock.

Avoid this shop allergies
May 2019 • Business
I attempted to enter Nairn Wool Shop with my cat today. I would have been my third visit to the knitting group that meets weekly. The shop owner was looking out for me. She told me the majority of the population of Nairn including five members of the group are allergic to cats. Marie told me one group member threatened to sue her because of my cat.
On my previous visit I bought wool from this shop. I think Nairn wool shop should be closed down. I would recommend everyone avoid this shop and the whole of Nairn.

We are very surprised by the amount of misinformation in this review, we did inform her that her cat was not allowed as several of our ladies had allergy issues, not the majority of Nairn, that is untrue . A group member threatening to sue is also false. We had asked, after her first time, that her cat couldn't be brought to knitting club due to allergies, That she was welcome to come without the cat, but brought him again anyway on her second visit. We were kind and respectable with this customer and also helped her with her bags to the train station. We have a duty of care to all our customers, one persons wishes cannot outweigh the needs of others.
