Not exactly Wallasey, but my wife swears by Abakhans by St Caths Hospital in Birkenhead.

The Age UK Wirral shop in Liscard centre has new wool I think (if not, the manager can advise which shops do).

I've just learnt how to knit and got lovely wool from Poundstretchers - I think it was 1.99 per ball for a massive one. There is also a stall in Birkenhead market that sells it.

'Made' Seaveiw Road, have loads of different stuff, from budget to high end designer yarn, also very helpful, otherwise Wilkinsons, B&M and Calico Laine.

I'd also recommend Calico Laine in Liscard. It's a small family run business and the staff there are very helpful.
However if you can wait, on 27th November 6-9pm, Abakhans are having a winter preview where everything is 20% off and loads more bargains.
