I always used to buy mine from Rowan. I think the House of Fraiser branches still sell wool also.

If i am buying on line I use Angelyarns.com so far found them to be fast and reliable.

Stores like Instore and hobbycraft stock wool, as to John Lewis. Instore is hit and miss as to what there is and the others an be a bit pricey.

I agree there are NO wool shops abouts, I am lucky to have 1 2 mins walk down the road from me....and it is so cheap!
