Welcome to The Fibre Lounge, run by Louisa and Mel in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire.
At the age of 5, Louisa was taught to crochet by her grandmother - a skill which she nurtured and grown over time. In 2016, Louisa began to teach crochet and sell luxury yarns form her home and online. As the business grew, she decided she needed to get someone on board to help.
Mel began her crochet addiction after attending Louisa's crochet classes. After helping at a few shows, Mel became a permanent member of the team and in 2018, the pair decided to open up a bricks and mortar to expand the business further.
The Fibre Lounge, formally known as Komodo Krafts, stocks a variety of luxury, quirky and affordable yarns including Mondial, Katia, Bobbiny, West Yorkshire Spinners, Mrs Moon, Rosy Green Wool, plus a whole host of independent dyers. The shop has allowed the workshops to expand and bring in other expert crafters in knitting, spinning, weaving, macrame and more.
At The Fibre Lounge, we aim to inject fun into fibre crafts, keeping things modern and interesting. There are no paper patterns stocked in the shop, however there is a cosy corner where you can pop in, have a cuppa and use our ipad to browse the thousands of patterns online - and if you do decide to buy any, we can print them for you too. We stock a wide range of ethically sourced yarns, and endevour to continue to drive our products down this path.
