Thanks to Yarns International, a locally based, online yarn shop for their continued support! You can see their yarns in person at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival and color cards on their website.

What kind of things do you carry? Is it all for knitting/crocheting, or do you have spinning/weaving/etc supplies?
We specialize in pure undyed Shetland yarn in two-ply jumper weight, two-ply lace weight, and gossamer lace weight. The jumper weight yarn comes in nine natural colors, the lace weight in five natural colors. We have excellent pattern support for all of these, including designs created exclusively for us. We also carry Koigu merino wool and Shepherd's Wool.
What's your favorite thing about having your own yarn shop?
We no longer have a brick and mortar shop. We did have a shop for 12 years before becoming an internet-only store. We hold "live" sales events during the year where we reconnect with old customers and friends. We also have a booth at both the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival in May and at the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival in October.
Do you have any knitting groups meeting at your shop? Any fun classes coming up?
We offer workshops in Fair Isle knitting once a year and occasionally other workshops.
