Hi, I’m Teresa – Nice to Meet You!

Wool Tree was born in September 2018 after I was made redundant. I had two young boys to look after and needed something close to home and school.

I found this gorgeous little shop, full of character, nestled away in Oreston village, right opposite H Watts Florist. These traditional windows don’t bear sweets, but wool instead.

I’ve always been passionate about crafts and love to try new things. I’ve been knitting since I was about 10, and learnt to crochet when my youngest son was born. I’m definitely more of a crocheter than a knitter, but I do absolutely love knitting socks! Despite being left handed, and crocheting left handed, I actually knit right handed.

Excellent customer service and great choice of wool and patterns.

Lovely little shop, beautiful wool and the most friendliest helpful lady, I will be returning

So lovely to pop in and see you on Wednesday and again on Thursday. Not having a local wool shop it was great to talk to someone who knew the same crochet designers as me and who had made the same designs. Thank you for a lovely visit.

Had my 1st crochet lesson today, loved it. The shop is a little jewel. Thank you ladies.

What a fantastic shop, Teresa is so helpful and is always cheerful and chatty. Don’t go anywhere else for your yarns or patterns! Once you’ve been you will keep going back!

Met Teresa for the first time last weekend. Lovely lady, very helpful – we had a nice chat about the workings of having small businesses. Will definitely be sourcing my yarn from her for all my makes at Bumbleebee Knitting.

What a fantastic yarn Tardis! We had a great visit today & so pleased with the choice of yarns, colours, pattern books … everything! Thank you for sharing your knowledge – we will be back (often!!) x

Wow! Haven’t been in for a while but I loved visiting today. Teresa helped me so much to select a couple of very special Christmas gifts for friends. She is so knowledgable and her stock is absolutely incredible! Loving spreading the word about your beautiful shop… will be back with a crochet buddy soon after the new year! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Teresa. Thanks for your help today! Please support this amazing shop; it is simply wonderful!

I love the innovative and informative Owner Teresa. Always so helpful and bringing products that Plymouth has wanted for so long. Showing others the way. xxx

Lovely helpful lady. Lots of great yarn.

Found this wonderful wool shop at last. Such a lovely welcome & nothing was too much as I changed my mind as such beautiful wool in shop. I will be visiting again very soon.
I asked what’s in the bags & was told all about the temperature blankets, which I found very interesting. Looking forward to the new scheepies wool to make the temperature blanket Xx

What a lovely little store! The lady that assisted me today was just the loveliest person and even gave me a pattern to work on with my new squishy yarn. Thank you so much and I’ll definitely be back.

I visited Teresa in the the Wool Shop for the first time today. What a gorgeous quaint shop with a great selection of wool and Teresa is really knowledgable. I’ll definitely be visiting again.

lovely wools for sale and owner is very very helpful

Visited following recommendations and what a delightful experience. Gorgeous little shop of knitting inspiration and knowledge. Thank you so much for the friendly advice and encouragement, now can’t wait to start my socks.

Lovely little shop, with so much to tempt unprepared knitters with. I’m certain we’ll be back plenty of times in the future.

Lovely wool shop with plenty of inspirations to create.

this shop is amazing I feel like a kid in a sweet shop and the window display is fantastic if your into knitting ,crochet this really is the best shop for you and Teresa is so helpful love this enchanted shop


What a simply amazing shop. I so wish I lived closer, as my local wool shop in Hampshire sells a basic range of products and none of the unusual projects that Theresa stocks. Theresa also guides and advises which is what makes this shop the ‘whole package’ With Theresa’s support, via messenger, I learnt how to crochet!! Definitely worth a visit, but beware, you will not be able to leave without falling in love with a project or two

Amazing choice in such a little shop! Teresa is so helpful, what a find!

Love this shop, ….finally finished my first ever pair of socks. Don’t look too closely Teresa, thanks for your initial help with starting.

I finally managed to visit the wonderful place today after my move away and am so glad I did. I felt like a child visiting a sweet shop full of surprises. It was so wonderful to see and hear the lovely Teresa giving amazing advice and suggestions to her steady flow of of customers. I have never felt as special ever in a wool shop before and left with some amazing new purchases. Can’t wait to return. If you have not visited this wonderful place . . firstly why? . . and secondly don’t miss out xx

A beautiful little shop and a very lovely lady. I’ve just treated myself in there to the Sophie’s stool kit and I can’t wait to get started. I will definitely be visiting again.

First time visiting today! Lovely shop and thank you so much for the sock advice. I’m sure you’ll be seeing me again with more questions!

Such a lovely shop lots of choice and great advice !!

Lovely shop, great stock and such a welcome. Teresa is so willing to share her knowledge and help with any queries etc. Just perfect!

Eekkkkkk Teresa I just love your little shop. Such character & packed full of colour. I was like a kid in a sweet shop.

Myself and my mum had a lovely visit to your shop, thank you for all your help, I’m looking forward to starting my new projects, love your shop, full of character.
