Yarn and Fabric shop in Devon

About Hulu

Where does the name Hulu come from? Hulu is simply the Hawaiian word for "wool".

Hulu is a family-run business based in South Devon in the South West of England that started trading at the beginning of 2009. We love all types of crafting but have a particular passion for knitting and sewing, which is why we decided to set up this shop.

We want to provide our knitters and crocheters with a range of quality yarns and accessories as well as selling top quality fabric for people who like to sew, make quilts or patchwork items.

You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest or read our blog. We'd love to chat to you!

Knitting and Sewing

Knitting is an increasingly popular hobby with people of all ages, and the range of yarns available to knitters has never been better. Natural fibre yarns in gorgeous shades make knitting a real pleasure and are helping to shed the image of knitting being an old-fashioned pastime.

A similar tale can be told about sewing. John Lewis sold record numbers of sewing machines in the run up to Christmas 2008 and fabric designers such as Amy Butler, Heather Bailey and of course Cath Kidston are becoming well known names as people decide to turn their back on mass-produced garments and home furnishings and make their own.

We are committed to making your shopping experience on our website as easy and enjoyable as possible. We offer discounts and special offers whenever we can to try and keep the prices down. If you have any suggestions on ways in which can be improve our website, we’d be glad to receive them.

The Environment

Our business is located in the town of Modbury in Devon. On May 1st 2007, Modbury hit the international headlines as being the first UK town to turn its back on plastic shopping bags. All of the Modbury traders stopped issuing plastic bags and started selling reuseable, and biodegradable bags instead. Local residents tend to bring their own fabric bags when they shop.

Hulu is keen to fall in line with the Modbury traders policies and as such have chosen to use to use mailing bags which are 100% recyclable and jiffy bags which are made from recycled materials. Occasionally we may use clear self-seal plastic bags within your order and these are made from 95% recycled films and contain a biodegradable additive called Biothene. Sadly we can't really do much about prepackaged items that come into the store, but we can be careful about what packaging we send out. If you would like to know more about the plastic bag free campaign then please visit the dedicated website at

To all of you, from all of us at Hulu - Thank you and Happy Crafting!
