About 'A Woolly Tail'

A Woolly Tail Ltd was the brainchild of a passionate Yorkshire woman who fondly remembered the art of knitting from her childhood!  Owner, Julie Whitehead, wanted to find a way to support local businesses and embrace her love of knitting and crafting. 

Being in very close proximity of our suppliers helps in so many ways – it not only supports the local economy but also develops great relationships and levels of understanding with local suppliers and helps reduce that ever important carbon footprint.   Also it keeps the costs down for you the customers and means that we can offer quality products at competitive prices!

So, it’s not by chance that our Woolly motto is ‘…yarns sourced from the Heart of Yorkshire’ and we stock products from a selection of the main Yorkshire yarn suppliers.  We are able to supply any item from a manufacturers’ current range, so if you are interested in but unable to find a current line or shade on our website, please contact us and we will be able to order it for you. 

We can also offer help with those hard to find discontinued shades and lines – we are always willing to make enquiries for you as we visit our suppliers every week and you just never know we might strike lucky!

Our website is fully owned and operated by A Woolly Tail Ltd and our Company Number is 7567492.  We aim to ensure your web based shopping experience is as easy as possible and welcome any feedback on how we can improve our service to you. 

Please note however that we are an online retailer and do not have a physical shop or showroom for visitors.  We are a small family run company so if you try to contact us and we are busy, your telephone call will go through to a voicemail where you can leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.  We always try to respond to emails within 48 hours.
