We're an independent yarn store nestled in the heart of Much Wenlock. Our shop is made up of everything you need to create beautiful hand knits and crochet masterpieces.
Most of our yarns are sourced either from Britain, or are the finest you can get from the likes of Italy or Peru. We try to cater for all levels, those who want to learn and the wizards of all things crafty. Books, yarn, ribbon, buttons, hand made items - we've got it!
Ippikin opened just over 12 years ago, by Lesley - who was a keen knitter and felt a lack of yarn choice in Shropshire. She started Ippikin off as a gallery primarily and it soon was taken over with yarn and knitted goodies.
12 years on, and I recently have taken over the shop. I worked at Ippikins for over 2 years, and never wanted to leave the cave of colour that it is. When Lesley and Paul mentioned retiring, I simply couldn't resist. I want to keep the essence of Ippikin, as the charm of all the colour squished into one shop in Wenlock is the reason I started knitting in the first place.
We aim to inspire, help and enjoy the experience of being creative with anyone who steps through the door. So please do come in, whether just to meet us, have a chat, or pick our crochet and knitting brains.
