Great Place for Tassie Wool

Lovely place to pick up gifts, both already knitted and Tasmanian wool by the skein. Great selection and lovely, engaging proprietors.

Tasmania was quite nippy when we arrived, and we had packed light, so my wife purchased a long woollen cardigan that was warm & yet light-weight (note - the next ten days of our trip were a heat-wave). However, the attractive woollen will get some good use over the next few years.

This was a great little shop with a large variety of New Zealand woolen goods. Very helpful and friendly staff/owners. I am a convert to Merino now and love my purchase. P.S. Thanks for sharing your wine!
