Very helpful staff. The problem with buying wool and accessories is you want to see it and choose accordingly but now with the lockdown us pensioners are ordered to stay home. This wool shop does not have a delivery service. I've literally come to a stand still. Would you reconsider please?

The ladies there are very accomodating. The gentleman only sits and knits and helps if hes called for. The young indian lady helped me with everything. Will go back but only to her

Terrible service, the staff are too unhappy to even greet when you enter the store - the lady behind the counter just plays with her phone - no customer service at all - will definitely not be going back.
Please check your woo, what they sell as DOUBLE KNIT is family knit - shocking.

kismet visit

as a treat my friend took me for the first time...So impressed, a fabulous shop...broke the budget!!!!

I saw the word WOOL in bold letters on the outside of Kismet Yarns shop in Northlands Deco Park on Thursday and decided to pop in. All you could see was wool!! Was absolutely fabulous to find another wool shop because there really arent too many of them around. Kismet Yarns have every kind and colour of wool and embroidery threads you could wish for, at really good prices with extremely helpful staff. Northlands Deco Park is becoming more and more of a magnet to me!! I am forced to go there once a week for a site meeting. Each week I find another little gem.

Clearly everyone was too busy to greet me or offer help. Being a new (potential) customer I needed assistance but ended up leaving empty-handed

Their wools and embroidery threads are very reasonably priced. I exchanged wool that I had bought there and they were very willing to exchange because I had purchased the wrong ply. The staff are very friendly and helpful and knowledgable about knitting patterns and yarns. They have a large supply of accessories and knick knacks to make hand crafts easier.
