Wool Centre – Boksburg

Wool shop counterWool shop onTrichardt RdWool shop

I’m writing this post so that others looking for this lovely wool shop in Boksburg will find it more easily than I did.  I had heard that there was a good wool shop in Boksburg but had never seen it (despite passing it a good few times in the past).  I eventually got directions from a very helpful lady at the Boksburg Advertiser.  I’m going through a crafting my arse off stage, sewing kids clothes, making place mats and trying to finish a crocheted blanket for Fjord which I started when he was in utero.  If you are looking to find them here are the details.  The Wool Centre address is, corner of Trichardt Rd and Charl Cilliers with the shop entrance on Trichardt.  If you are travelling from the Sunward Park side of Boksburg toward East Rand Mall side Continue on Trichardt past the intersection with Jumbo booze shop about 2 traffic lights down they are on the right hand side.   Their phone no.  is 011 8924165.

The variety of wools is wonderful.  I just wish that my skill matched my enthusiasm and that I could knit more than pearl and garter stitch and knew more than 1 crochet stitch.  I left with wool to finish Fjord’s blanket and make a scarf for Domi.

Crochet book

By chance I later went into CNA and could not resist buying ‘The Art of Crochet’ set, at R9.95  the 1st book in the set it comes with a crochet hook, wool, dvd and some basic step by step instructions.  If these help to make me a more capable crocheter I’ll be paying regular visits to The Wool Shop.

  7. This is helpful. They are still operating? I ask because I will be coming from Secunda and shops open close from one day to the next. Thanks in advance

  8. I was there at the end of May and the shop was open and the shop was well stocked.

  9. I only buy my wool from this store. I phone them first to make sure that what I need they have in store and the shop is well stocked. Most of the time I order my wool and fetch later and they are so helpful in doing this
