Welcome to Hank a Yarn Boutique. Our passion for beautiful yarns is at your fingertips and we hope you enjoy browsing and shopping online.

Our staff, with over 300 years of knitting experience, takes great pride in selecting the finest yarns; from hand dyed wools to luxury silks for that perfect next project. Whether you are a professional or novice, we can assist you in finding exceptional materials at the right budget. From timeless heirloom sweaters to hand knitted or crocheted baby gifts to a blanket or prayer shawl, you will find the stock and color at Hank.

If you are looking for an unrivaled experience, stop in and see us in person. We know you are putting time and love into your project, so we are here to help with Knit Alongs, classes and just friendly advice (by appointment).

So while we say “It’s not your mama’s yarn store”, bring her along for an experience like no other: Hank a Yarn Boutique.

We carry a wide assortment of Woolfolk, Brooklyn Tweed, Rowan, Malabrigo, Madelinetosh, & Shibui, as well as select Blue Sky Alpacas, Debbie Bliss, Habu, Misti Alpaca, Manos del Uruguay, Berroco, Juniper Moon Farm, Plymouth, & Cascade. Click on the Yarns tab for a complete list of the yarns that we carry.
