We still have plenty of stock of the Opal 3 ply light, this light weight sock yarn is the perfect knit for the summer months.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please watch out for counterfeit Clover items. There are items in the market that look like and are badged as Clover but they are of an inferior quality. If you buy from one of the registered Clover distributors in the UK, of which we are one, then you are safe. If there are counterfeit Clover items in the market place then it is likely that other brands you carry are also potentially being copied.

At some point Clover will be increasing their prices, they don’t know the exact date but it will be this year. They tell us it will be a maximum of 5%.

We now have up and running our new website… at last!! If your preferred method of ordering is on-line you can register for an account via our website and click away!
