We've got project bags and notions, and even buttons! Everything is listed (and updated frequently) on the "Vendors" tab of our webpage! We have classes, too, and those can be found on the "Classes" tab.

How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to open your business?
The store's first birthday was February 1 this year - Red Fox Yarns is just over one year old now! The NoVa area has had several yarn shops close as the owners retired in the last few years (including one in the space where Red Fox Yarns is now). I'd always wanted to have a needlework store of my own, and everything fell into place at the right time for it to happen!

What's your favorite thing about having your business?
Oh my goodness - I get to play with yarn all day! And talk about yarn! If it wasn't for the paperwork involved, it wouldn't feel like work at all!

Fans of fibre space

Where are you located and what are your hours?
In the heart of Historic Alexandria, VA

Mon - Fri:  11 am - 8 pm
Sat: 10 am - 7 pm
Sun: 12-6 pm

What kinds of things do you carry?
We search out unique and hard to find yarns and tools to our knit and crochet community.  We specialize in indie and US made companies (Brooklyn Tweed, Stonehedge Fiber Mill and Jill Draper Makes Stuff, for example) and are most known for our amazing selection of hand dyed yarns. Here are a few: Neighborhood Fiber Co., Miss Babs, The Lemonade Shop, Freia Handpaints, the Fiberists and Hazel Knits. We’ve also got some interesting imports that you might not see anywhere else: Kalinka by Karen Oberg, De Rerum Natura and a variety of notions and accessories from too!

How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to open your business?
My teaching business, Knit-a-Gogo, Inc was started in 2006. The retail shop grew out of that business (after a lot of begging and pleading by my students!). We opened our doors in July 2009.

What's your favorite thing about having your business?
I love being inspired by my customer’s creativity. Every day, someone points out a new great pattern that they found or puts together two colors that I would never have thought of putting together. I really have the greatest job in the world.
