You love yarn.
You love to touch the different fibers: sturdy wool and cotton, soft cashmere and alpaca. Have you caressed milk, or corn, or soy yarn?
You love to see the rainbow of colors: bright primaries, delicate pastels, rich earth tones, and of course, undyed wool and cotton. Did you know that cotton naturally grows in shades of green and rust as well as natural cream colors?
You might only love natural fibers: wool, silk, cashmere, cotton, corn, bamboo. You might have a fondness for “easy care” fibers: acrylic and acrylic blends, superwash wool. Have you tried knitting with wire?
You may have been knitting for a long time, and feel challenged to try complicated cable sweaters and gauzy lace shawls. Have you tried your hand at designing?
You may have been wanting to learn to knit for long time, and the task of picking up two pointy sticks both scares and excites you. Can you see yourself knitting gifts for your family and friends?
We know this: you love yarn. We do too.
You’ll find a wide array of yarns at The Fine Needle – from delicate lace weight wools to chunky cottons, and many a fiber in between. For those who don’t like wool or are looking for the unusual, you’ll find quite a selection of “alternative yarns” – these yarns contain such fibers as soy, milk, corn, and bamboo. If you’re looking for an easy care fiber, you won’t be disappointed. A rainbow of acrylic blends and super wash wools await. Did you know that corn is machine wash and dry?!
Of course, you can’t do much knitting or crochet without the proper tools! We are pleased to carry the full line of Kollage Square needles and hooks. We also stock Inox, ChiaGoo, and Clover needles. Have your tried knitting with square needles?
Piles of yarn aren’t going to get knit without books and patterns! From the simple to the sublime; small projects to major endeavors, infants to adults – and even pets! Have you ever made your furry friend a knitted item?
