Colour by Carole

Burscough, United Kingdom

Announcement    Brexit has been and gone, 28.1.2021

Because of the new rules about exporting from the UK to Europe and beyond , the imposing of tariffs and customs charges we have been hearing about in the press and media we are NOT posting out beyond the UK.

Thinks may change once the systems get working better.

The Wool Boat is on our "home" waters around Burscough in West Lancashire.

It doesn't look like we'll be going to far by canal, or any other way for a while and we are now not opening the shop on the boat. We are still able to send things out by post.

If you have a desire for a lovely hand knitted creation please feel free to get in touch as Carole has plenty of time for knitting her orders at the moment.


Please check out our website www.thewoolboat.co.uk for other ideas of the garments Carole has created in the past.

The Wool Boat is a unique floating Wool and Yarn shop based on a canal narrow boat. She is, as far as we know, the worlds only floating Knitting and Crochet shop. She carries a wide range of yarns from various manufactures, from basic acrylic yarn through Acrylic and Wool mixes to pure wools, in weights from lace to Aran. We also have on board a good selection of patterns and accessories from needles to buttons. All knitters and crocheter’s of whatever ability are welcomed aboard by Carole the knitter and Capt Col, the captain and stockman.

Welcome
We are creative people and work for most of our time from our narrow boat “Emma Maye”

From this unusual base we provide various services that hopefully will be of interest to you, and you will enjoy the experience of working with us to produce what you require.

1st of all, our boat is also known as “The Wool Boat” as we are a unique floating wool and yarn shop and we cruise around the inland waterways of the country.

Carole is a very experienced knitter and offers a hand knitting service.
