Woolaballoo is an online boutique for the modern yarn lover and the creation of Lucy Bush – who left a career in teaching to follow her creative dream. At the beginning of the pandemic Lucy closed the Bricks and Mortar Shop in the quaint County Durham village of Langley Park and took Woolaballoo 100% online.

Coming out of the pandemic Lucy passed the baton of ownership on to Vicky Rankin who is keeping it online for the foreseeable future.

Woolaballoo is an exciting online hub of creativity which sells materials and patterns to inspire modern crafters. It also offers workshops and crafternoons to enable crafters in the Durham area to meet up with like minded wool fans.


Vicky is a wool and yarn addict who loves nothing more than having a cup of tea while crocheting and daydreaming about maybe one day making a dent on her stash of indie dyed yarn.
