About this event

Swap your stash for some nice new yarn. On Yarn Swap Day you can bring in your unneeded yarn, sell it (fingers crossed!), and we’ll give you what you’ve made as a Sheep Shop gift voucher to spend when you please. To help avoid chaos, please let us know you are coming to swap yarn by noon on Wednesday 12th August.

Yarn swappers

You can sell as much or as little as you’d like. Your yarn will be on sale to fellow swappers and other customers.
Whole balls complete with ballbands recommended, but if you want to sell incomplete balls or those without labels, that’s fine as long as you label them with weight and as much info as you can give.
Please label your yarn with your full name and the price you want for it (I leave it to you to decide your price). If bringing in several identical balls, please label every single ball unless they are to be sold as a set, in which case make sure they are firmly bagged together and labelled “Set” with a price for the whole bag (and your name).
You are welcome to stay and knit/crochet or to come back later. Gift vouchers to the amount you have sold will be issued to you after 12.30pm (if we’re very busy, this might take an hour or so).
At the end, you can choose to take home any yarn you have left or leave it here to be donated to charity. Any yarn not collected by the end of the day will go to charity.
Please do not bring in any yarn which has been near a moth. If your yarn has been sitting there for a while, as a precaution put your yarn in a plastic bag in the freezer two days beforehand to kill off creepy crawlies.
Yarn needs to be brought on the day, we won’t be accepting yarn prior to Yarn Swap Day.

Yarn buyers

If you like the look of any yarn, simply bring it to the till where you will be able to buy it the same as any other yarn. Please note yarn bought from the yarn swap table will not be refundable.
