We're Here To Help

... And We Love What We Do!

Woolly Works really began decades ago when Edith (Edie) combined her passion for yarn craft and love of teaching and began to offer lessons out at her little alpaca farm after retiring from The US Air Force. She teaches the craft of yarn itself - from fleece to the finished product. She teaches  creating with yarn - knitting, crocheting, dyeing, felting, and needle tatting. If you are willing to make the trek to the farm, you could finally get those cables right, learn the best cast on for a collar, find out how to felt a hat or purse. If you wanted to know how to be an accomplished machine knitter, Edie is the one to see.
In 2012, Edie decided it was time to open a store front in downtown Colorado Springs, saving us all the commute to the farm. Woolly Works began first on Tejon Street, and then 2 years later came a move a few blocks away to settle in on East Bijou Street. Tragically, Edie's husband Clyde passed away in 2015. She hung on to the store for 5 more years and then moved back to the farm for the last time.

After renovating the bottom floor in her house, Woolly Works Knit Shop is now located again on her farm in Latigo Trails just 7 miles north of Falcon, and off Meridian Road just across from Black Forest Colorado. You will always receive professional, warm and friendly service anytime you visit. Woolly Works Knit Shop offers a large selection of specialty and luxury yarns, notions, fiber arts supplies, patterns, books and classes for all your knitting, felting, tatting and crocheting needs. The store is bright, and Edie is here to help. She's always looking forward to seeing you!

At the age of five, I picked up knitting and crocheting by watching my mother and both of my grandmothers making beautiful pullovers and cardigans. Through the decades, I witnessed a dwindling appreciation for my trade as a Knitter, and I made a commitment to keep the knitting trade alive for future generations.

The idea of owning a knit shop was born in 1987 when I received my first knitting machine as a gift from my husband.

Although I was still an airman serving in the US Air Force, my dream did not die. After I retired from the military in 1998, I turned my dream into reality. A second knitting machine made the knit shop official – The Woolly Works Knit Shop was born.

But it did not end there. After seeing an advertisement in a local paper, I became intrigued by Alpacas and their luxurious fiber. The Woolly Works Farm now has five Alpacas nibbling in the pasture. I learned to process their fleece and teach others to do so. I have taught knitting, crochet, dyeing, machine knitting and all manner of yarn craft over these years.

A few years later I realized that I was not just a knitter; I was also a collector (hoarding) of many fine yarns. In ten lifetimes I could never use it all up. So, in 2001 the only thing for me to do was to open a retail store. I have moved to other locations since then with the current being the best of all carrying a vast variety of yarns and supplies-truly heaven for all needle artists.

I have been teaching knitting and crocheting since 1999. In 2010 I added custom dyed yarns by Edie to my repertoire. With the hand of the Lord guiding me, the Woolly Works Knit Shop will be a staple for many years to come.
