Cork Wools moved to Castle Street

UPDATE: Location closed.

Local favourite wool shop, Cork Wools, was nestled in the English Market arcade for as long as I can remember… until this summer when it moved to its new and current location on Castle Street facing Cornmarket. The new space is technically smaller, but with more natural light it feels more spacious and inviting.

Cork Wools has settled into their Castle Street location so nicely. #knitting #CorkCity #corkwalkies #knit #lys #corkwools #ireland #windowshopping #castlestreet

Maureen O’Sullivan explained the new space welcomes more foot traffic and is positioned centrally to be convenient for those shopping on North Main Street or Patrick’s Street – and beyond. Cork Wools, Castle Street, Cork City

With the recent closure of Youghal Knits on Princes Street, Cork Wools on Castle Street and Vibes & Scribes on Bridge Street are now the two main independent wool and knitting supply sources in Cork City, offering the variety citizens have come to value. Though both cater to knitters and crocheters, the shops themselves stock different yarns for the most part.

With more natural light in its new location, the inventory at Cork Wools shines more than ever before. The colors seem brighter and the textures seem richer. Cork Wools, Castle Street, Cork City

  1. Seeing all those luscious rainbow-coloured yarns almost makes me hungry. Cork is such a long way from Sydney, Australia as my ancestor found out 161 years ago.

  2. Well I’m disgusted to here ye have closed down. I need 2 100g balls of 4 ply cruise wool in white tivoli and can’t find it nowhere. It’s to finish a cardigan I was doing. There was no notice just closed.

    1. It is so sudden and such a shame. I was as surprised as you. I am not affiliated with the shop at all, so had no idea it was closing until I myself went to buy wool. I hope you find the yarn you need, perhaps look in destash options on Ravelry?

Enough about me. What are you thinking?
