Your go to shop for ethical and sustainable yarn!

Knit with attitude is a small independent yarn shop based in Stoke Newington, London, UK.

We specialise in ethical and sustainable yarn for hand knitting and crochet, which means that we value transparency through every stage of production and we take great pride and care in knowing exactly where, how and by who the yarns we carry have been produced.

Knit with attitude is registered with the Norwegian VAT On E-Commerce (VOEC) scheme, meaning that for Norwegian customers we'll deal with everything VAT and customs on our end and your parcels will be delivered directly to you with no fees and no faff!

At Knit with attitude we aim to give you the most brilliant shopping experience, so please contact us at any time with your questions and comments.
