Eden Cottage Yarns

Having always been creative, and interested in textiles, Victoria taught herself to knit in 2006 whilst at university in Dundee. At the time there was little yarn available in shops, and unable to find the colours she wanted she had a go at dyeing her own.

Over the next few years she continued dyeing in her spare time, and also taught herself to spin, amongst other things. In November 2011, she moved to a cottage in Eden Valley in Cumbria, and Eden Cottage Yarns was born. It has since continued to grow rapidly, and Victoria now has a larger kitchen to work from, albeit in a more modern house (now in Yeadon, West Yorkshire). There is no workshop or drying room - all the yarn is dyed in the kitchen sink, and hung outside to dry.

Victoria's designs are published on Ravelry, and have appeared in some of the British knitting magazines too. You will also see her yarns in stock at a number of our yarn shops around the country. Eden Cottage Yarns has been featured on BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cumbria, and in The Knitter, Let's Knit, Let's Get Crafting, Knit Now, Simply Knitting, Knit Today, and Simply Homemade.

All About The Products

Eden Cottage wanted their product images to really stand out as they are know for their quality however they didn't just want a standard listing approach. We implemented a grid layout with a mixture of sized images which truly hero the products.

A clear and user-friendly navigation was also important and it had to also be scalable with their every expanding range of wools.

Results

Eden Cottage have a beautiful flexible site allowing both individual customer purchases and the ability for larger orders with their Wholesale customers being able to manage their accounts. Going forward we continue to work with Eden as their lovely business involves and grows.

After a number of years using a previous platform I decided to move to Shopify. Knowing that this was going to be a difficult and lengthy task I decided to use experts so that I could be confident in the end result. I chose Squashed Pixel based on customer testimonials and was not disappointed.

From start to finish they listened to what I wanted, advised where things could be done better and found workarounds to ensure the store works in the way we need it to. We received training on how to use Shopify once we were nearing the go live date and have received fantastic on-going support since the launch. We are still working with the team to finalise a few additional elements but would highly recommend them to anyone looking to set up a Shopify store. The time saved in the setup and the day to day usage has more than paid for the set-up costs.
