This page will hopefully fill up as I find more links or information to
add. Unfortunately a lot of shops that once stocked crafting items have now
either closed down or have discontinued their range. If you know of anything I
could include on this page email iis[at]iol[dot]ie. Please put wool in
the subject line to help it stand out from the hundreds of spam emails I get.
An Irish mailing list where members are crafters interested in chatting
about Knitting, CrossStitch, Crochet, Quilting, Weaving etc. The group
currently meets twice a month in Dubin City.
Most big towns in Ireland would
probably have at least one shop that sells wool. If you don't find anything on
the main street of the town, ask a local. If you know of any I could include
on this list email iis[at]iol[dot]ie. Please put wool in the subject
line to help it stand out from the hundreds of spam emails I get.
