It’s a bumper blog post today as we profile *10* more fabulous Woollinn Vendors..!
Not content with just organising this whole Woollinn shin-dig, we will (of course) be setting up shop in the Woollinn Marketplace too. 😊 At our epic stand you’ll be treated to:
- More Donegal Tweed then you can shake a stick at;
- Oodles of hand-dyed treats from Townhouse Yarns;
- A tempting array of unique yarn blends from The Fibre Co;
- A Pom Pom Quarterly pop-up and Trunk Show;
- An exclusive feature with Woolly Mammoth Fibres;
- A carefully curated selection of needles and accessories… and so much more!
We’ll also be announcing some exciting exclusives in the run up to opening day, so watch this space…
Bernie and her team specialise in British yarns, dyed with love in Belfast. They will bring their speckle gradients to the marketplace, along with an exclusive colourway based on the ‘Woollinn’ logo! We’re very excited to check out their hand carved knitting equipment too, including sock blockers, yarn bowls and darning mushrooms.
This company is most well known for their stunning gradient cakes and the sea of colour that greets you on their stand! You can expect to see these plus their semi-solid ranges, alongside exclusive knitting patterns and Hiya Hiya needles.

Sheila will be sharing her signature vibrant, deeply-saturated colours with us all at Woollinn. Hand-dyed on a range of high-quality natural yarn bases including: Pure Merino, Blue-Faced Leicester, Baby Camel & Silk, and Alpaca/silk/cashmere.
Alongside these tempting yarns there will be hand-made leather buttons and a range of silver penannular brooches. Sheila also has a special colourway in honour of Terry Pratchett, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Alzeimher’s research.

A business run by the three friends and colleagues, Stefania, Giulia and Federica. They have operated from a studio in Genova, Italy since 2013, where they spin and organise workshops on fibre arts.
Lanivendole in Italian literally means “girls who sell yarn”, and they are fully devoted knitters themselves. They try to balance the “artsy” skeins that are fun to spin and create, with the single/2ply threads of luxurious fibres that they love to knit with.
