A THRIVING online wool business is bedding down in Morpeth.

The Wool Room will be the latest addition to the town’s Sanderson Arcade when it opens its first store on Saturday.

The business works closely with the Campaign for Wool and the British Sheep Farming Industry, selling high quality bedding, blankets, soft furnishings and gifts.

Around £30,000 has been spent on a re-fit for the store, which can be found in the Edwardian style gallery of the arcade, next to Curiously Wicked chocolate shop.

Managing Director Chris Tattersall said: “We are really excited to be opening our first store at Sanderson Arcade.

“Our products are hugely popular with our online customers and we are looking forward to spreading the word about the benefits of wool in Morpeth.”

Centre Manager Medi Parry said: “We are all really excited about the opening of The Wool Room.

“The store looks fantastic and don’t forget to look out for our colourful sheep along the arcade in the build-up to the opening.”
