YAK in Brighton

YAK the Shop | An Official Announcement


I am extremely excited to officially announce that YAK is finally opening its physical doors! The date for your diary is,

21st January 2015

16 Gloucester Road, Brighton, BN1 4AD

Those of you who follow me on Instragram, Twitter or Facebook will have seen some sneak peak photos already but in case you missed them here they are again with a couple more to show you what has been going on on Gloucester Road.

DadThe shop is located in the heart of the North Laines about half way between the train station and the sea, not far from where Unwind Brighton was held. I will be updating the website with all the information about how to find us during the next week including maps and how to reach us by public transport so do pop back later to find out how to get here.

I’ve been lucky enough to have help from lots of family and friends getting things sorted and contrary to the photos above which were taken last week it’s beginning to look like a shop! Although most of my DIY knowledge comes from watching countless episodes of changing rooms I am happy to say the interior is as unique as the yarns inside with minimal MDF.

In the shop we will have exactly the same wonderful stock that is currently in our online shop. However, I will tease you by saying YAK will be getting something very  new and exclusive soon, but that is all I can tell you for the time being.  The best thing about the shop of course will be that you will be able to see and feel of the gorgeous yarns but because we will now have the space we will also be hosting classes and events in the shop too!

I am so excited to be Brighton’s local yarn shop. I hope YAK will prove worthy of the status and we can help build a wonderful knitting community.

Our opening times will be, Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 6pm and Sunday, 11am – 4pm.
