what are we all about?

A big welcome to all our new readers and a wee bit about what we're all about...

We're opening our yarn shop in Pittenweem in 10 weeks (eek!).

We'll be stocking lots of lovely yarns; some well known big brands, some new or smaller ones.  In a range of fibres and colours and weights.

We'll also have a selection of needles and notions and patterns books and single patterns.  And we can offer you a cup of tea and slice of cake whilst you enjoy it!


We hope to inspire you, encourage you or simply supply your knitting needs (and wants).  Not just in the shop but on this website too and our newsletter (sign up here) and Facebook page (LIKE us).

We will also continue to make and sell our popular craft kits.  We currently have 5 kits...  All available mail order (email thewoollybrew@gmail.com or call us 07919 846 211) and in the shop when we open in December.


We designed these kits for beginners - young and older, but the more experienced will enjoy them too - opening a bag and finding all they need to knit, crochet or sew their own item.  Full instructions and ideas included too!  This includes a How to Knit guide in the knitting kits and How to Crochet guide in the crochet kit and a little stitch guide in the felt flower and bangle bag kit too.

You can find out more about our kits here including more photos and  links to even more ideas.

You can read more about our knitting projects and Stitches here.  Stitches is our knitting group that meets 7.30pm every Tuesday at Harbour Howff, St Monans.

For us, the month of October will be filled with planning, list making and ordering.

The month of November will be filled with lots of painting, shelf building and yarn unpacking (yeah!)  The best way to stay in touch with all this excitement is to sign up for our newsletter, visit and like our Facebook page or subscribe to this website.

And remember all our kits are available by mail order... is that jingle bells we hear?
