About Wools Worldwide & Bobby Davison, The Wool & Needlework Specialist shop...

The woolsworldwide website is THE way to access Bobby Davison The Wool and Needlework Specialist Shop from anywhere in the country or indeed the world. Our highly specialised shop sells knitting yarn from Debbie Bliss, Sirdar, Patons, Rowan, Hayfield, Gedifra, Noro, Sublime, King Cole and Bergere de France. We also stock knitting and crochet patterns and accessories, buttons, cross stitch kits and tapestries, Aeda and ribbon.

Established by Bobby, the shop has been serving the local community and surrounding areas in the North-East of England since 1951, with Bobby's daughter Vivienne and grand-daughter Claire now running the business and are there on a daily basis.

As it is a family owned business, we are committed to providing all of our customers with excellent, knowledgeable and impartial advice and help on all things to do with knitting and crochet. As we have been in business for so many years, there is a sound understanding of all older discontinued yarns that people may be looking for, and we have an extensive library of older, discontinued patterns from the 1940's up to the present day. We also stock many discontinued yarns that you may be searching for.

Many people would prefer to speak to us directly - there is always someone to answer the phone to help with any questions or queries that you may have.

Our experienced team of wool and knitting specialists of Vivienne, Claire, Alison, Joan and Sue are at your service at all times, and can help with ordering to queries to finding that elusive pattern.
