Bantry Yarns is based in the historic harbour town of Bantry on Ireland’s southwest coastline.
We stock an impressive range of high-quality yarns and knitting supplies, with a strong emphasis on Irish-made yarns and accessories. Our knitting designs are inspired by the colours and character of the land and seascapes here on our stretch of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
Bantry Yarns also supplies knitting kits and crochet kits to help you create garments that combine modern style with techniques drawn from the past.
Our Hand-Picked Selection
Quality Yarn Ranges
We sell Adriafil, Rico yarns and the Nua Collection as well as King Cole, Bergere de France, and Cushendale wools. Alongside our wide selection of yarns, we also sell patterns and needles suitable for all your knitting projects. A selection of our stock is available in our online wool shop where we sell knitting and crochet kits. If you’re in West Cork, we’d be delighted if you’d visit us in Bantry, to chat as you browse our kits, patterns and yarns!
Irish Yarn Traditions
Knitting has been a tradition passed down through the generations, both here in Bantry, and on our nearby peninsulas and islands. In our Bantry shop and our online yarn store, we cater for knitters across Ireland and worldwide.
We also stock a range of books which offer you exciting patterns and the chance to learn more about the story of knitting in Ireland.
