Second-Hand Equipment

 

Home

 

 

Whilst we are yarn specialists, it has become apparent that many of our customers are having difficulty in obtaining various items of textile equipment, spare parts, patterns and text books.  I have decided that I will try to offer a selection of such items as they become available, if only to keep people using yarn!

I freely admit that in some cases I will be operating on the fringe of my expertise, but I will do my best. If you have any particular requirements, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

 

Please note all items are pre-used unless stated otherwise. Inspection recommended. Further details on request.
