"Fantastic Service." I was able to purchase items at a good price. Dispatch was same day, with goods arriving a day later. Communication was excellent. This is a shop which believes in customer service, and I would happily purchase again.

Hi Sue once again great service and thanks for your wee message which I did appreciate. I always watch your videos and messages on Facebook and you always seem to have something going on. You have a great business there and a very busy time. All best wishes

Thanks again for the excellent service- still shopping with you despite moving since I can’t find another shop to match your range. Love knitting with the Pixile yarn.

Customer Review of Prym Ergonomics Knitting Needles: "Making Great Lace Stitches" The 5mm are currently being used on a DK shawl with plenty stockinette, garter and lace stitches to assess the needles. The SSK, K2tog and S2KPSSO stitches are accomplished with great ease, thanks to the rounded tip that scoops up the stitches. I'm delighted that my stitches don't shoot off the ends like they sometimes do on pointy tips. As I wrote in my review of the 4.5mm, these needles don't stress my hands and joints and I can marathon knit comfortably with no negative consequences the next day. The needles make even & smooth stitches and are light as air. I am thoroughly enjoying the knitting experience from these needles. My first purchase with Cottontail has been all positive.

Customer Review of Prym Ergonomics Knitting Needles: "Put Through Paces & Came Out A Winner" Because of a nickel allergy, finding good knitting needles without nickel has been a challenge. It has left me with the choice of bamboo or stainless steel. Steel needles leave my joints sore after a while. Enter Prym Ergos. They flex a little which reduces strain and the shape & texture makes it naturally easy to hold without having to grip tightly. The tip that reminds me of a drumstick easily scoops up all sorts of stitches, including "tricky" ones such as K3tog, S2KPSSO, etc. I knit two sleeves of an aran jumper and the finish is smooth and even. No strain on my hands and no swollen knuckles. The only con for me is that there isn't (yet) a 100cm cord length. Others have posted elsewhere that the purple print on the needles wears away. That happens with most of my needles so not exclusive to these. Hoping for a 3.75mm size someday. I am enjoying using the needles greatly and will be purchasing more sizes. First time buying from Cottontail and my order was shipped promptly. Very happy knitter, here.

Ergonomics Circular Needles - "Game changer" I heard about these new needles and couldn't wait to try them. They are definitely worth it! From the Triangular needles to the no Kink cord they are awesome. And Cottontail crafts was fantastic took my order and sent them right out got them in less than a week! Thank you so much I will be ordering more (Note: this review is from a customer who lives in USA!)

I did enjoy my shopping experience with you - your site is user friendly, my delivery arrived surprisingly promptly, with no delivery charges. I am a cross-stitcher and have used Sew and Sew for many years, but they have changed over the years, become too big and are no longer the friendly site that they used to be. I will be changing my alliances and give Cottontail Crafts my orders in future. Many thanks

Hi Sue, Thank you for the excellent service provided by Cottontail Crafts - speedy delivery and really easy website to use. Thank you for the small free gift of a seam ripper - always handy and such a nice gesture.
I wish I had known about you a month earlier as I holidayed in Ingleton in late May! Next year I will certainly be paying you a visit. I'll also be sharing your site with my colleagues in 'Our Quilty Pleasures' group
My name is
I hope you enjoy
