About Us

We are Gavin & Teresa, self-confessed yarn addicts and the husband-and-wife team behind Yarn Worx.

With impeccable timing (!), we started Yarn Worx back in 2019, just before the pandemic.  Gavin had sold his business the year before and was looking for a new adventure. With my love for hand dyed yarn and Gavin’s experience in e-commerce, we started Yarn Worx as an online yarn business based from a log cabin in our garden.

While we still love the online aspect of the business, we also know that there is nothing at all like squishing yarn in real-life so in September 2021, we moved into our bricks and mortar shop.  We are excited to be located on the High Street in Hadleigh, Suffolk which makes us accessible to everyone. 

We have loved every minute of having our own shop, exploring new ranges and discovering gorgeous products we know our customers will love.  Our particular passion is for top quality hand-dyed yarns and we also stock high-end commercial brands with a focus on ethically sourced fibres.

We are fully aware of how vital crafting is to the wellness of our particular community and we believe that, actually we KNOW that, beautiful yarn brings great joy. We want all knitters and crocheters, regardless of skill or experience, to have access to the very highest quality yarn and tools and so if we don’t love it, or wouldn’t use it ourselves, we won’t stock it!

We’d love to welcome you to our shop, either here online or in-person, as we always say to our customers: you’ve found your people!
