Best Little Yarn Shops Gift Guide

This post may contain affiliate links. This is a sponsored post.


Yarn.  It's the literal string of life for many knitters and crocheters.  Those who don't knit or crochet might never be able to understand our obsession with it.  But those of us who get it are always on the lookout for the next amazing skien.  And sometimes those who love us want to contribute, but don't know how.  This Yarn Gift Guide is for both the yarn lover and those who love a yarn lover.

These are some of the Best Little Yarn Shops that I've stumbled upon.  I've personally used yarns from these shops and absolutely loved them.  I will list the shops in alphabetical order.  Please click through to my free patterns and reviews to read more about the yarns.  Each project includes detailed information about the yarn as well as my personal opinions about the yarn.

I've also tried to include any special sales or coupons that the shops are having during this holiday season, especially for Black Friday and Cyber Monday!  (I will do my best to remove expired coupons and sales as well as update with any other pre-Christmas sales!)

Is this an exhaustive list of the Best Little Yarn Shops out there? Of course not!  These are simply the best ones that I personally can recommend based upon my experiences with them.  I have recieved yarn from each of the above shops at one time or another, but I always strive for honesty in all things so my reviews include my honest opinions.



Shops of Notable Mention

Please, keep in mind that I've not personally worked with the yarn from these shops of notable mention.  Some of these shops have sponsored giveaways in the past and the owners were a pleasure to work with; or I trust people who have worked with these shops' yarn and they have loved the yarn.  Great business transactions inspire confidence as do recommendations from friends.

  1. Thank you, Rachel. I have a limited income so I am not able to enjoy exploring all of the wonderful yarns that are available. But, I have saved up and splurged on a skein (or two) of Chandi's beautiful yarns from Expression Fibre Arts. They are exceptional in color and quaility.
    I enjoy your page and have a few of your patterns as well, thank you for sharing your talents with us.
