The Woolly Brew is a yarn shop in Pittenweem, in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife.

Pittemweem is a small fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife. It has beautiful country and coastal scenery and fabulous food, galleries and crafts. It’s about 20 minutes south of St Andrews, an historic town famous for its Cathedral, University and golf.
We sell a wide and varied selection of items for your knit and crochet projects. Including yarns from Rowan, Jamieson’s of Shetland, Rico Designs, Fyberspates and more! We’ve got needles and hooks from KnitPro and Pony and handmade notions from Fripperies and Bibelots and bags by Doris and Hazel. We also have a huge library of books from independent designers such as Kate Davies, Marie Wallin, Felicity Ford, The Crochet Project and the quarterly magazine from Pom Pom.

Our Pittenweem shop is now open by appointment. Check our website for details.
