Pipps and Co

Pipps and Co, weaving, Penzance

A little shop with (probably) the widest range of fibres to spin or felt in Cornwall. In addition to many shades of coloured Merino, we stock the wool from many other breeds of sheep, mainly British, and lots of specialty fibres, from cotton to camel. Our range of weaving yarn is beginning to grow.We are also official stockists of Ashford equipment: we carry many small items in stock and can order anything else you require. Demonstration models are here for you to play on. For those who like to create their own colours, we have Colourcraft dyes and a selection of fixers.Our commercially spun knitting wool is carefully selected from British producers; some is already dyed by them, some is dyed by us and some is natural.
