                                     Our Customers Creations

     Over the years we have been running the floating yarn and knitting shop we have

    encouraged our customers to provide us with images of items they have created

   from yarn we have supplied from The Wool Boat.

   So here, in no particular order, are some of the great things that have been made.

  If you have images that you would like adding to this gallery please feel free

                                               to send them in.
