Welcome to Budget Wools

Online Wool, Yarns, Patterns & Accessories retailer. 

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website.


Our  wool  shop  opened  its  doors  in  1963,  and  is  looking  forward  to  celebrating  its  golden  anniversary.  It  certainly  doesn’t seem  like  50  years  since  father  and  daughter  Linda  and  Ron  set  up  a  small  shop  In  Clarence  street  Cheltenham  selling inexpensive  yarn  by  the  skein.  In  1978  as  trade  grew  they  were  joined  by  younger  daughter  Caroline  and  Ron  retired, but  he still  kept  a  keen  interest  in  the  business.

In   1979  we   acquired   a   new   plot   of  land   in   Clarence   Parade,   and   started   the   adventure   of   building   a   custom made   wool   shop,   one   of   the   first   to   have   wool   displayed   in   fixtures   both   sides   of   the   shop   instead   of   behind the  counter in   packets.   This   enabled   the   customers   to   have   a   proper   look   and   feel   of   the   yarns,   which   caused great   excitement at   the   time.

Today  the  shop  is run  by  Caroline  who  has  been  joined  by  her  son  Richard  (handling   our   website).
Our  aim  over  the  years  has  been  to  give  good  advice  and  help  to  the  customer  in  a  friendly  atmosphere,  with  our  girls being more  like  a  family  than  staff.  We  have  now  built  up  a  large  stock  and  selection  of  beautiful  yarns , patterns  and  accessories  from  all  over the  world  as well  as  the  UK.


Welcome  to  our  Aladdin’s  cave.
