About us


Strand Wools is a completely independent privately owned business which specialises in the best selling knitting wools on the market. We have been trading now in the wool trade for over 30 years.All the knitting wool is now in the Hook and Eye shop and the Strand Wools name continues on line  only.


We pride ourselves on a friendly and personal service whether it be in the shop or on the internet which can so often be impersonal. We can always be contacted by phone if you prefer on  01332 381744


The boss John handles all your enquiries and orders personally and follows them all through. We do like to hear from you on any subject so please feel free to contact us at sales@strandwools.co.uk at any time. We have achieved 94% next day delivery this year and only 2 have gone missing and one of those was returned to us by the post office because it had not been collected from the Post Office Collection Office -I am very proud of that.


My dear father who founded this business 30 years plus ago prided himself on his saying -the customer is always right and never has a problem. I have continued that way and you will always come 1st-that is my promise John Sallis Proprietor


The sister shop Hook and Eye is an Aladdin’s cave of haberdashery and crafts and if you are in Derby it is a “must visit “-not all the items stocked may be on site yet -so please enquire if you don’t find what you require we are here to help.


Please feel free to check out our new blog -please check it out and send us your photos.
