Casting Off

It is with great sadness that I have to announce that, after over 30 years of trading - 9 on my watch - Knit Wits in Penzance is closing.

As many of you will know, the shop has been on the market for 2 years but the lack of a buyer, both of our boys now having moved onto University and our desire to do something different has brought us to this difficult decision.

Should anyone out there have a longing to live in Penzance and own a wool shop then now's your chance to come forward!

In the meantime, there are further reductions in the shop and online so snap them up now!!

Thank you for your support over the years and a very big thank you to our staff, Marie and Tracey, for their wonderful support over the years.
