The Wool Shop moved into the Ingatestone Garden Centre in October 2014.
Formerly known as We Three – The Wool Shop in Brentwood, the original was established in 1984 by three work colleagues: Esther, Joan and Elsie, hence the name “we three”.
In 2008 I took over the business from these ladies but kept the name before making the decision to relocate to Ingatestone to join the garden centre’s craft-oriented community. As part of the move, I decided to change the name of the shop to The Wool Shop, to reflect where the new look and feel of business.
In the new premise, we’re still stocking your favourite wools and knitting & crochet supplies, along with sewing supplies and craft fabrics. We’ll also make room for our sweet Baby Boutique clothes and toys.
If you find yourself in Ingatestone, I do hope you’ll drop in to see us. We’re a friendly bunch and enjoy meeting new people as well as having a catch up with our favourite customers!
