Welcome to Nickelby at Darnum

Look for Open Studios coming up in March
Why not check out Ladies Lunches here at Nickelby - perfect for a relax during the busy Christmas season and beyond
Summer is here and whilst you might not think alpaca for garments, we don't just do clothing. Our farm has a licenced cafe and if you ring and book (day prior) we can do all sorts of farm gate things. You can pop in for coffee and cake with no bookings but if you book you can order a ploughmans platter or if a group our "yummy chicken sandwiches" made country style and a glass of local bubbles is lots of fun for a girls day out (min 4). So don't let the warm weather put you off, our shop is cool, you might even find you do try on a garment or two, they are very hard to resist.
Earlier in the year I travelled to Japan to study SAORI weaving for 11 days and just feel in love with the concept. It is weaving without restriction and no rules. So as you can imagine I am having such fun at my loom and creating some wonderful things. Some of them you will see in the shop on this website under Nickelby Designs but there are many more in the shop.
Every day there is always something going on so we are constantly updating our facebook page so please "Like" us on Facebook - www.facebook.com/nickelbyatdarnum to find out all the latest happenings.
