Hedgehog Fibres Merino Sock

Recent arrival of many old favourite Hedgehog Fibres Merino Sock colours have now been uploaded onto the new online shop.

Lett Lopi – Icelandic Wool

Icelandic wool has been in short supply since the start of the pandemic, I have just had a recent delivery of a few colours, please check the latest Lett Lopi stock availability on the new online shop.

The old online platform from Selz is now redundant and I have started processing orders on the new beinspiredfibresonline shop which is a BigCommerce platform. New product updates and migration of products to the new site is ongoing. I am sure there will be teething problems, there always are, please be patient!

REVISED OPENING HOURS FOR MARCHMONT SHOP

The shop is currently bursting with wool and so much choice. With changing consumer shopping habits, I now need more time to focus and expand on online sales, at the same time managing to cater for a wider audience of walk-in customers.

Please bear in mind that Be Inspired Fibres is a small independent shop and is managed by a single person / worker. It is a well curated yarn shop focusing on high quality yarns from the UK and around the world. Only a selection of the stock is available to view online at the moment. There is a wide choice of fibres and price range in the shop, please don’t hesitate to ask.

If you are visiting the physical shop in Marchmont, it is currently 2 customers in the shop, due to space limitations and COVID protocol. Be prepare to wait outside. Please also wear a mask before entering.

If you don’t want to wait, you can also click and collect, send me an email to check on stock and I can photograph options and send you a payment link and you can collect during opening hours.

Plan ahead and come with some idea of what you want to make. The shop is overwhelming and you will need help, so before you come please check that I stock the brand or wool you are looking for or if it is easy to find a substitute from my current stock.

If you are looking for a pattern, do a search on Ravelry or the internet to get an idea. I have very limited stock of single patterns. Also please bear in mind that patterns and wool have changed a lot in the last decade.

Temporary Shop Closure – pick up and mail orders only.

A very huge thank you to all my regular local customers, visitors from around the world and recent new customers, who have been supporting my small speciality wool business which will be turning 7 this year. Your health and well being mean a lot to me, therefore I feel that it is the right decision to close the shop temporarily.

Due to recent Government advisory measures to minimise social contacts and restrict business in order to control the spread of the Coronavirus in the community.

I would like to advise customers that as of end of business on Saturday 21st March 2020, I will be closing the shop to the public. This is not an easy decision to make, I have bills and rent to pay like all businesses, and but we all need to make huge sacrifices to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus and we all need to take this seriously now. We need to all stay indoors and minimise social contact with each other.

For health and safety reasons, I have had to restrict numbers in the shop to 2-3 customers max at any time to ensure that there is sufficient space for safe social distancing at the moment.

I am trying to minimise the time people spend in the shop, so if you have a specific need, please email or call me before you arrive. I never envisaged I would be in this situation, it is an extremely stressful time for everyone.

I have hand sanitizers available should you need to use them in the shop, payment terminals and door handles are constantly being disinfected and I will also be wearing a mask!

Please contact me via email at beinspiredfibres@gmail, Facebook or Instagram, to get the latest stock information and availability, shop information and updates. I do mail order, and I am happy to send photographs and payment link for credit card payments. You may try to call me on 0131 629 2059 between 10am – 12.00 Monday – Friday.

My online shop is currently only limited to special edition books and magazines, but this will change as I will now have more time to work on different distant selling platforms.
