Welcome To The Knitting Goddess


The Knitting Goddess is an independent dyer of luxury knitting yarns, producing hand dyed luxury yarns at a less than luxury price.  

The Knitting Goddess is run by me (Joy) and my tolerant other half (Bobbie). I dye yarn and fibre, write patterns, make beads and stitch markers so I get to play with a lot of different crafts and call it work. Bobbie is responsible for winding mini skeins, making stitch markers and packing up all of the parcels. You can find out more here.

Our yarns are dyed in small batches, which means that every skein is unique and unrepeatable - although if you fall in love with one of our colourways but need more skeins than we have listed, please get in touch and we'll do our best to help.


There is something sensuous about using luxury yarns, such as cashmere and silk, but sometimes the expense of these luxury yarns can make them seem too extravagant for everyday use. Think again! Our blended yarns are affordable as well as good looking, which means that these top end yarns no longer need to be an occasional treat.


There has been a renaissance in the fine art of lace knitting, and shawl and scarves are now both popular and fashionable. Our luxurious yarns mean you'll find something perfect for that special project.


If you've been bitten by the sock knitting bug, you'll find lots to tempt you here. Our hard working sock yarn is 75% superwash British wool and 25% nylon, so you can be confident that your hard work will wear well. As well as a rainbow (and more) of semi solid colours, there are lots of multi colours for especially colourful feet. We also have a glorious high twist pure British Blue Faced Leicester sock yarn. For something extra specially we have Britsock - a custom spun blend of british wools, alpaca and nylon.


Perfect for almost everything, our range of 4 ply yarns includes blends with alpaca, silk, and cashmere. So if you're looking for an extra special yarn for socks or the softness essential for a perfect scarf one of our yarns will be just right for the job.


Thicker yarns make for quicker knitting, and extra warmth. With  fantastic British yarns to choose from you might have to decide that several projects are in order.


If you like the excitement of regular parcels with mysterious contents then yarn club is for you. There's a selection of yarns to choose from - so this isn't just for the sock knitters amongst you. 


As well as lots of hand dyed yarns we also sell  patterns, stitch markers, badges, beads and screen printed tote bags - perfect for you or for a gift. If you can't decide, we even sell gift vouchers.


We love to have our customers come back again - and to reward your loyalty we issue goddess points.

Each time you shop with us, every pound you spend on goods earns you one goddess point. When you reach one hundred points you'll get a discount code which can be used for £5 off your next order. Find out more here.


There's a group dedicated to all things Knitting Goddess on Ravelry - Knitting Goddesses (and Gods). The members are a wonderfully friendly and chatty crowd, and it's a great place to see lots of the yarns knitted up.


At The Knitting Goddess we know that we'd be nothing without our customers. We're committed to providing excellent service and quick dispatch of orders. Of course we love to get positive feedback, but it's even more important to us to know if you think we've let you down in any way so we can sort things out.

There's more information in our Terms and Conditions page about posting times, and what we'll do if a parcel doesn't arrive or isn't what you wanted.


All of our contact details are on the contact us page. The contact phone number for us is my mobile number, simply because there isn't a landline at the workshop.
