I continue to ship orders. Due to Covid-19, delivery may take longer than usual, depending on postal service capacity.
Please call or email before visiting the store.
Some of my suppliers are operating with reduced staff, so special ordering yarn may be iffy until people
are able to return to work. Inventory counts are now displayed for all yarn — the numbers in the computer
don't always match what's on the shelf, but should be pretty close.
We have had a lot of problems with our phone service recently. If your call disconnects
after 1 ring, or rings forever without an answer, please use the contact form to email us, or send a message through
Sometimes we can make calls but not receive them, so it's not obvious on our end there's a problem.

Pre-order the new Lykke Ball Winder
now! This ball winder is available in sustainably sourced Mangowood or Indian Rosewood. I do not have a shipping date
from the company, but if you place an order now, you will not be charged until the winder is ready to
ship to you. $100.00.
A new supply of Frangipani 5-ply Guernsey Wool has also arrived.
This is available in 500gm cones, or I can wind off a 240yd (about 100gm) ball for you. Aran and Dark Navy are back
in stock, and Bottle and Helford Blue (shown here) are new to us. Newly arrived cones are $60. 240yd balls are $15.
During the COVID-19 lockdowns, Knitting Fever is making some kits available
that they will drop-ship directly to USA addresses. The first 2 kits are designs from
Noro Magazine #12 and include the required yarn, a free copy of the magazine, and free shipping
directly from Knitting Fever to you.
