About Charming Wool

Charming Wool, a speciality knitting and crochet store located in the Shop 2, Mary Lynn Square, 566 Serene Street, Garsfontein, Pretoria, opened doors for the first time on June 14th, 2012. Since then, our store received its own Facebook page where loyal customers and knitting enthusiasts come together to share ideas, read tips and stay up to date with our specials and courses.

Our Focus

We started the business because there was a great need for a specialist wool shop in the East of Pretoria. As it turned out, the demand is even bigger than we thought. We even had to move to a bigger premise in the same centre at the start of April 2014 to accommodate all the new materials and to create more space for our knitting and crochet classes.

Fun Short Courses

True to our mission of keeping everybody's hands and minds working, we regularly offer courses to master specific knitting and crocheting skills. Whether you are new to handcraft or are a skilled knitter, we have a course for you. With handcraft no longer a subject in schools and mothers often far too busy to teach handcraft skills to their kids, we have realised that we also have a responsibility towards the younger generation. To this end, Charming Wool created shorter courses specifically suited for kids. The classes are presented in a relaxed environment, introducing young minds to skills they can use throughout their lives.

Visit our store during the week and on Saturdays. We offer you a friendly and personal environment to find knitting and crocheting materials at affordable prices.
