Black Cat Yarns (formerly Treacle Wool Shop) is situated in a gorgeous location, right next to the River Wansbeck in the pretty market town of Morpeth in Northumberland. The shop itself is in a characterful old building next door to The Chantry (built around 1296!) which houses the Tourist Office and Craft Centre.
Owned by Donna, the shop prides itself on excellent customer service and strives to be part of the local community. We regularly run events and projects to include local knitters. The shop stocks something for all budgets from baby 4 ply to hand dyed indie yarns, and offers a wide selection of yarns, accessories, patterns and magazines to inspire your knitting projects. We are the only store in the UK to sell Greta & the Fibres hand-dyed yarns from Barcelona.
We are proud to be a Garnstudio DROPS Design retailer. With excellent pattern support (1000s of FREE patterns!), natural fibre yarns at amazing prices, we are thrilled to be able to offer their items to you!
You can shop online if you don't live locally and you can buy online and collect from the shop to save missing out on your chosen product. There are always great bargains to be had!
We hold regular weekly and monthly Craftgethers and always welcome new members. We run lots of Workshops to help you extend your skill base. They are small groups, informative teaching and relaxed.
