Wool ‘n Weave has been in Hillcrest longer than most of our customers can remember. In fact many of our customers were not even born when the doors opened in the early 1970’s. From its humble beginnings as a farm stall near the old Lillie’s store, through 3 venues in the Village Centre, to its current position in Lillies Quarter, Wool ‘n Weave has served its loyal customers in Hillcrest and far beyond faithfully.
The many customers who are still with us since the early days remember the original owner, Pat Sutherland fondly and tell stories of the beautiful mohair jerseys that she designed. Sadly, Pat passed away but many of her jerseys are still worn with pride. The second owner, Diane Blignaut knitted the most beautiful baby jerseys for us and visited regularly for many years. Joan Shephard and her daughter, Lorraine were the next owners. While Lorraine moved on to a career in the travel industry, Joan is still an invaluable member of staff at Wool ‘n Weave.
