It's all about a crazy little thing called yarn...

...and three women with an obsession for colour and natural fibres!

About Us

Dublin's destination yarn shop. Stocking quality, natural-fibre yarns of wool, silk, cotton, cashmere, and more - together with inspiring patterns and a wide range of tools and accessories. Our friendly and experienced team members are ready to help both in store and online. Home of Townhouse Yarns - Hand Dyed in Ireland. We ship worldwide!

We're a family-run small business, located in the centre of Dublin City in the beautiful surrounds of the Powerscourt Townhouse.  We've been on this magical fibre-filled adventure since Jacqui and Lisa set up their first market stall back in June 2006.
