Product Care

Please refer to the bag label for care instructions. In general, all bags except the hand-decorated, Large and Shopper bags are machine washable on a gentle “wool cycle”.  Do not tumble dry or dry clean. The other bags can be sponged cleaned.

Where do your yarns come from?

We use Shetland wool from Jamieson’s of Shetland in Shetland. Occasionally, we also make one-off purchases when travelling, e.g. Portuguese wools from Burel Mountain Originals or from local suppliers such as Ginger Twist Studio in Edinburgh, Rusty Ferret from Fluph in Dundee, or Phileas Yarns in York.

Where do your lining fabrics come from?

We buy linen and cotton fabrics from Scottish Linen direct from the mill in Kirkcaldy, Fife. Some of the single-coloured patterned fabrics may include a small percentage of other materials such as nylon.

Where else can I buy your bags?

We attend knitting events and yarn festivals. We also restock the Woolly Originals’ EStore at on a regular basis.

Woolly Originals supports the Just A Card campaign which encourages people to buy from independent local shops, businesses, artists, crafters and makers.

Bags are also available at these bricks&mortar shops:

  • Ginger Twist Studio on London Road, Edinburgh;
  • The Dovecot Studios shop on Infirmary Street, Edinburgh;
  • Loop on Camden Passage, London; and
  • Storkurinn in Reykjavik, Iceland.
