Northeast Fiber Arts Center

The candy store for knitters, spinners, felters & weavers.

Yarns

Customers look for yarns in different ways. Some seek yarns by gauge, some by project, some know the manufacturer or brand and others come just looking for an "alpaca". Sometimes we want to hone in on the best value and other times we want to indulge in a special yarn for a special project!

Yarns are cross referenced, for example you might find the same yarn listed under both "Juniper Moon", "Alpaca" and "great for scarves/shawls/cowls"!

My Picks for an "Investment" Sweater

or "Investment" yarns - you get what you pay for. These are not inexpensive yarns, but will wear really well and are good choices for classic designs that you'll wear for years to come.
