Where to Buy Yarn in Cork City

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. there’s a lovely shop in Bandon as well called Creative U which is a craft shop but have a very extensive range of wool, needles and patterns and the girl behind the counter is really helpfull.

  4. Hola! I’ve been reading your web site for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out
    from Huffman Texas! Just wanted to mention keep
    up the fantastic job!

  5. 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.

  6. Hey just to let the readers know that there is a shop in north main street Homestar.
    U can get wool from there .very price for Dk100.

Enough about me. What are you thinking?
