Yarn Store

Grab your tea or coffee, put your feet up and browse through the Yarn Store!

Established in 1987,  the Yarn Store has been around a while!   The Yarn Store is now fully engaged as your go-to on-line store.  Angelika is vigorously working to keep the web site up to date with the latest colors and the best clearance selection.  Cascade Yarns is one of our most popular lines.  Cascade Yarns has a great quality, affordable price, and amazing color ranges on all their lines.  Angelika is very partial to Mirasol Yarns.  Mirasol supports the citizens of Peru.  The Peruvian artists create the most luxurious yarns blending extra fine merino and silk.  Check out the merino, alpaca and silk blend of Sulka Legato.  Auracania is another great quality, particular their Alpaka Reina

But Wait!! There is so many more yarn lines.  Find your favorite here !

In my opinion, in this time of high pressure jobs and long work days, juggling family is feat only a magician should try! Crochet and hand knitting is a source of therapy. Just 15 minutes before retiring at night will relax the muscles in your head and body, and allow you to go to sleep a little sooner. Balance your busy life with the opposite end of the spectrum, which is in your favorite chair and your favorite knitting needles or crochet hook and a delightfully soft or colorful yarn.  

My Advice: Keep to simpler patterns. Knit and crochet therapy is supposed to be fun and relaxing. And if that means nothing but scarves in stockinet stitch, so be it! Don't stress this part of your life with complex patterns. Bring a smile to your eyes, fingers and mind with simple patterns and beautiful yarns. To me, it isn't necessarily fancy stitches and upscale shapes, it is simple shapes, easy stitches and beautiful, colorful, quality yarns that makes for a therapeutic session and a happy knitter or crocheter.

Store Hours Changes: What a year 2020 is.   Like many businesses, I've had to accept some changes that I did not want.   With all my wonderful customers' support I have had, I have been able to continue to supply yarn and supplies.  Our phone lines are open 10-3 Tuesday - Friday, and 10-12 on Saturday.  Texts are very welcome, and often will have answers back outside of phone hours.   Emails are monitored very closely.  I am no longer open to the public. Visitors are only by appointment, and there will be restrictions.   Disappointing news, I agree.  By adapting to the current challenges, I truly hope that crochet, knitting, and machine knitting will continue to be popular, and I truly hope you will think of The Yarn Store when you look to yarns and tools.

Feel free to call or TEXT if you have any questions!  816-461-5505   Angelika

New Colors in Queensland PerthNew Colors in Queensland Perth Fingering Weight Yarn

Newly arrived, are 6 new colors in Perth.  These are long runs of color, perfect for rainbow-like projects.  Perth Yarn is a fingering weight [ 1 ].  It has 437 yds, and is 80% Superwash wool, 20% nylon. 

These shades will sell fast, but they will be standard stock items.   With the exception of one or two colors, we are still stocking the original colors, as they can't be beat!  

Perth is the traditional sock weight yarn, and makes fun, but slightly miss-matched socks, because the color runs are so long.  One sock might start with a color, that the other sock might have in the middle.

What has been truly popular with Perth are shawls and wraps.  Marin Melchior's Butterfly Papillon shawl really shows off yarns with long color runs.  Pair Perth with a black, white or neutral shade to make the main yarn pop. Need help?
