About Us




Brown Paper Loves is more than just a yarn store; it's a sanctuary for yarn enthusiasts, located in the heart of Inch's Yard, Newbury. I am Donna, the proud owner and your crafting companion at Brown Paper Loves.

At Brown Paper Loves, we are dedicated to creating a lively community of crafters and enthusiasts. Our website acts as a doorway to immerse you in the world of yarn, offering a range of engaging courses, inclusive groups, and inspiring workshops. Whether you're a seasoned knitter, an aspiring crocheter, or just curious about fibre arts, there's a place for you here.



Being the only independent yarn shop in the town centre, I take immense pride in providing personalised service that goes beyond just selling yarn. My goal is to be more than a shopkeeper;  whether you're a seasoned crafter or a beginner, I am here to offer advice, guidance, and support in person. From assisting with patterns to advising on yarn selections and troubleshooting project challenges, my focus is to ensure each visit to Brown Paper Loves is rewarding and enriching.  I love to see your makes, whether works in progress or finished projects.

At Brown Paper Loves, we value community and connections. Our space is not just a retail location; it's a meeting place where crafters unite to share stories, exchange ideas, and draw inspiration from one another.


I am wholeheartedly dedicated to nurturing a culture of creativity and camaraderie, and I am privileged to be part of your yarn story. Whether you need project assistance, yarn recommendations, or simply want to drop by for a chat, I am here to assist in every possible way.

Thank you for choosing Brown Paper Loves as your crafting destination. Together, let's knit, crochet, and create beautiful memories one stitch at a time.
