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.
