Snowdonia Wool is owned and run by Glenys Owen-Jones, whose family have lived, worked and farmed in and around Abergele for generations.
The shop has exclusive rights to sell the luxury Plymouth Yarn range. Plymouth Yarns include alpaca yarns, wool and silk yarns and the unusual worsted weight 100% merino wool.
A major part of the shop is the space to run classes in crochet and knitting and these have become an important part of a visit to the shop. Glenys teaches the knitting skills classes and Rowan tutors come to run special crochet days.
Glenys recently returned to live in Abergele, after spending many years teaching in southern England and working in environmental education at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew.
