Where to Buy Yarn in Cork City


April 3, 2009 by Evin

This post got so big it was bordering on commercial so I moved it to my self-hosted WordPress blog which can handle the commercialism of it all. Come on over to THIS PAGE for the complete list of yarn/wool sellers in Cork.

Smudge Yarns
Irish sheep wool processed and dyed on the same continent! Keeping the process and money local, Smudge Yarns creates richly-hued true Irish wools for spinning, knitting, and crochet. One of the few truly authentic Irish yarns available.

    This is a wonderful help to me. My hub and I will be in Cork for three days and Kenmare for three days in August (also Adair for one night). I was looking for knit and needlepoint shops. This is terrific information. Thanks.

    Any other suggestions for these spots will be much appreciated.

  3. […] Factory has as many buttons as you may ever need. We’ve mentioned this shop before in our Where To Buy Yarn in Cork City post, but this time it is featured all on its own because yarn is just a tiny portion of what makes […]

    There is also a wool shop in Midleton..
    Take a walk down the alley, next to Leonardo’s restaurant.
    Its only open Thurs, Fri, and Saturdays.
    Highly recommend..good yarn selection, needles, buttons and accessories.

  7. […] If you have a car, definitely take to the roads and explore beyond Dublin. Dublin is the city most Americans want to visit. Cork is the second-largest and not as shiny or large, but I live here and love it. You know the say, “it’s a nice place to visit but I wouldn’t want to live there”? Well, Cork is a nice place to live, but it’s not overrun by tourists much unless it’s sunny. But, WOW, it is an amazing place to live and the music scene is more intimate plus we have several yarn shops! […]

    October 2013: Just back from visiting Cork and yarn shopping was one of the things I’d most been looking forward to. I tried Youghal Knits (good selection, helpful, but majority acrylic) and Hickeys (all the standard yarns available in any department store, great for fabrics, buttons and ribbons) but if you want artisan yarns, from local sheep, or from a local spinner or locally hand-dyed, then Kinsale is the place. Vivi’s Trading was where I found Smudge Yarns. I didn’t like the manner of the woman in the shop – she was kind of abrupt with me and my friend, and she managed to alienate us within minutes of our walking through the door. But I was glad to find Smudge Yarns there though.
