About Us

The Felt Princess Wool Shop is a relaxed place to come and enjoy fibre, yarn and tools you need for you for all your Knitting, Crocheting, Weaving, Spinning, and Felting needs.

It is owned by Natalia and Nigel Yates, who are ex Otago Uni students, who moved back to Dunedin 8 years ago because, it's a super place to live. Natalia and Nigel met at a medieval feast way back in 2001. We have lived all around the place since, Nigel following Natalia for her work as a Youth and Family Minister in The Anglican Church, making use of the theology she learnt at Otago Uni. 

Natalia's obsession for fibre as an adult started with felting shoes, bags and clothes for the Medieval group they belonged to. The Shop is Natalia's Mid Life Crisis and she is loving it! Her Grandmother, Shirley, taught her to knit as a child and her mother, Judy, was a keen weaver back in the 1970's, so it is no wonder fibre is her passion. 


Along with Natalia we have three wonderful staff members, Pam, Marcelle and Elaine. Each brings there own passion to the shop and love to share their knowledge with our customers who we view as friends.


We care about what you are doing and are happy to answer all your questions and if we don’t know, we will find out for you. There is a space down the back of the shop that we use for Weekly Groups and Workshops.
