Christmas Open Day - 3rd December

After two long years, We're back!
The Purlescence Christmas Open Day.

Special Guests - Dragon Hill Studio

Sharon and her Partner Andrew from Dragon Hill Studio are an indie dyer and designer based in the beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds

We love everything about them especially their self striping sock yarn. The colours they have chosen has drawn great interest from knitters and designers. This is a real treat and a great pleasure to have Sharon and Andrew as our guests.

A Great Relaxed Day

Our open days have grown since we opened up in Wantage 10 years ago. Maybe you will want to smoosh the oodles of Yarn, take a cup of tea in The Cafe or cuddle up on the comfy sofas in The Cwtch.

If you have not been to one of our open days before they are very relaxed, friendly and informal events. It's a great place to meet friends and make new ones. We are now based in the beautiful rural setting of The Firs Farm, Leckhamstead, in the Royal County of Berkshire, just a stones throw from where the Great British Bake Off is held.


Our friends at Brown Classics are holding Breakfast at Browns classic car meet on the same day. Julia and her team will be cooking breakfast with all proceeds going to the Oxfordshire Air Ambulance. All of this just a stones thrown from Purlescence.
