Bags of Wool runs as a wool and craft shop selling knitting and crochet yarns, as well as a variety of haberdashery and craft items.

It is the only shop of its kind in Felixstowe and attracts customers from across the Suffolk coast area.

There are different workshops held in the evenings, from crochet classes to knit and natter groups.

The current owner founded the business 8 years ago, and now looks to sell the store, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

There is further scope for development as there is no real online presence. The opening hours could also be extended.


We are advised this is a Freehold opportunity. Our client may also be willing to sell just the property.

Leasehold option available.

Saturday: 10am - 2pm
These hours are to suit the owner's way of life and could be extended to encourage more business.
