Meet The Team

Morgan of Swansea Bay Yarns Mumbles Swansea


Now in the ninth year of owning this yarn shop – the website, Ravelry, has really opened up a great platform for both knitting and crocheting designers, and it’s exciting to see these crafts inspire people of all ages, that is the most satisfying aspect of the shop –  helping customers find their perfect project.
