Our retail Shop in Leyburn will reopen to customers on Tuesday April 13th 2021, when we’d love to see you! We expect to be open on our usual trading days of Tuesday to Saturday and are busy re-stocking our shelves. We are expecting a delivery of Sheepskins and Throws tomorrow (1st April 2021), which we’ll get straight onto the website as I know some of you are waiting for them. We’ve also just re-stocked the popular lanolin based Mitchells products which are fabulous for over-sanitised hands!
Check our Opening Hours online, in case of any revisions. Or call or email us first if making a special journey.

Covid secure precautions will still apply in the shop for now (social distancing, restricted numbers, mask wearing, hand sanitiser and contactless payments preferred).
In the meantime you can still shop online or contact us by email or phone.

As for the return of real Wool Shows, keep checking our Shows page. We will add them as soon they are confirmed to us. Depending upon any size and crowd restrictions, we expect to see Shows taking place in late Summer and Autumn, but not much before then, other than virtual shows.

Until then, have a Happy Easter!
