We are Portland’s Oldest Yarn Shop, with one of the largest yarn and fiber inventories in the area. Located in historic Multnomah Village, we focus on helping you find just the right supplies for your project, and offering support throughout the crafting process. We also offer knitting, weaving, crochet, felting and spinning classes.

We offer a large selection of local yarns and fibers created by many Oregon Indie Artists, including Knitted Wit, Shaggy Bear Farms, Three Fates Yarns, Mosaic Moon, Dicentra Designs, Foxglove Fibers and Abstract Fibers. We sell spinning and felting fibers, including some that are from rare and unique breeds.

We carry a very large selection of commercial yarns, including:
Blue Sky Fibers
Brown Sheep
Cascade Yarns
Kelbourne Woolens
Knitting Fever & Euro Yarns
Tahki Stacy Charles

And despite our shop’s name, we don’t just carry wools! We stock a variety of fibers, including cotton, mohair, cashmere, alpaca and multiple blends.

We also carry a large selection of needles, accessories, buttons, patterns, books, magazines and gift items -- all aimed at Fiber Artists’ needs. Equipment and tools for weaving, spinning and felting are either in stock or can be special ordered to meet your exact requirements.

Located just a few miles south of downtown Portland, Oregon, the Village offers shopping, restaurants, an art center and plenty of free parking. We are also on the Tri-Met bus line so from downtown you can take bus #44 or #45 and it stops right in front of our store.
