Member Profile: Olives and Bananas

Olives and Bananas joined the Chamber in January 2020. They’re more than a yarn shop, aiming to supply a wider range of fibre arts supplies from wool yarn to wool roving, felting tools, knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, macrame, cross stitch and embroidery. Natural fibres are at the heart of the shop, for both ethical and environmental reasons; slow fashion is an important key to a sustainable future.
