We’re Karen and Fiona. We’re two knitters still learning and loving our craft but we’re often let down by the lack of variety in local yarn shops. We want to see the yarn and give it a squeeze before we buy!

We want to be inspired and to inspire other knitters - the wannabes, beginners, hobbiest and the obsessed.

Enthused by our own established knitting group (we meet in St Monans every Thursday night) we formed The Woolly Brew. We opened our yarn shop in Pittenweem in December 2011.

Pittenweem is in picturesque East Neuk of Fife, 20 minutes drive from St Andrews and 45 minutes from Dundee. We’re only 1.5 hours from Edinburgh!

We offer a wide and varied selection of yarn, needles, notions and pattern books. We can offer you a cup of tea whilst you browse our selection of patterns and you’re welcome to bring your knitting too.

We also sell our own unique range of handmade craft kits - everything you need to create your own unique item!

We now have two knitting groups and workshops too.

Join our Ravelry group, sign up for our newsletter and Like us on Facebook to be kept up to date with all our news.

Feel free to call or email if you’d like us to post anything to you!
