Venetia’s Yarn Shop

Who we are

Venetia’s Yarn Shop is based in the small market town of Fakenham in Norfolk.

We sell beautiful yarns with a strong focus on natural fibres and British wool from a range of suppliers, along with hand-dyed yarns, many from local independent dyers.

You will find the basics you need for your projects here, together with pattern support, workshops, knitalongs and regular knit and natter sessions.

About Venetia

Venetia moved to Norfolk from Hackney in 2012, leaving behind a coffee shop. She is passionate about quality and sustainability, and has a great love of colour and texture, all of which is reflected in the Yarn Shop.

“There’s a good range of things and it’s always good to
have a chat with someone knowledgeable.”
