About Us

Located in rural Berkshire, Purlescence is the home of beautiful yarns and inspiring ideas!

We are a husband and wife team with crafting in our blood!

Purlescence began over 10 years ago and we have worked hard to build a reputation for not only stocking a wide range of products but also delivering a very personal service to our customers.

Like any good husband and wife team, we take care of different aspects of the business:

Jonathan (AKA Mission Control!) looks after the operations side and ensures orders get to you quickly and is always on hand to offer advice on any crafting queries.

Sarah (AKA Artistic Development) holds the artistic reins and having grown up with her Gran owning a knitting shop, loves nothing more than to peruse over yarn, patterns and anything colourful.
