For as long as I remember, I've always been knitting and crocheting, using my favourite Scheepjes yarn. I'm afraid to admit I sometimes have about 6 or 7 projects on the go. The joy of making something with your own hands is just so great and satisfying!
For 38 years I've lived in the Netherlands. Me and Mr. Yarn & Cosy moved to Ireland in March 2017 and that's when Yarn & Cosy started. As English isn't my mother language, I sometimes may use the wrong words or make funny sentences. My apologies in advance ;-)
Leaving the Netherlands, the chocolate sprinkles, liquorice and "stroopwafels" could be left behind. But what about my favourite yarn? I had to bring good quality and affordable yarn to the other side of the pond. Why? Because the Scheepjes brand is new to Ireland (but an established brand for years in and outside the Netherlands), and Irish crafters should have the opportunity to discover this beautiful yarn!
So.... dive into the webshop and be seduced by our large and versatile collection of yarn & accessories .
