- About us -
I'm Wendy, 40 years old and proud owner of the Yarn & Cosy webshop. For as long as I remember, I have always been knitting and crocheting, using my favourite Scheepjes yarn. I was twelve years old when I knitted my first sweater ;-). Making something with your own hands is just so much fun and satisfying!
I was born and raised in the Netherlands. So, as English isn't my first language, I sometimes may use the wrong words or make funny sentences. My apologies in advance ;-) After having a job in social work for many years, I decided to turn things around drastically. I quit my job, me and Mr. Yarn & Cosy moved to Ireland in March 2017 and that was the beginning of the Yarn & Cosy adventure.
Why Scheepjes? Well, that's simple. Scheepjes is an established brand for years in and outside the Netherlands. The yarn is a real joy to work with, it's very versatile and - most important - there's something to discover for every taste & budget. My goal is to provide you with a quick and professional service, with that personal touch you can't find at big suppliers anymore.
Thank you for stopping by and have fun snooping around. Please let me know if there's anything I could help you with!
