The Artisán Knitworks Fiber Story... 
When we first opened, virtually all of our yarns were created by artisans – sometimes the smallest of producers in the United States and Canada. Yarns that were handspun or hand-dyed. Or both. All natural except for decoration or an occasional dash of glitter. Wool, alpaca, llama, silk, mohair, cotton and more. Weights from super-bulky to fingering. Monochrome and multicolored yarns that will dazzle your imagination.

We are still the only retail source for many, if not most, of the artisanal yarns we carry. We have scoured fiber festivals and working farms across the country for years to build this stash of what we consider truly special yarn.

Over the last 7 years, we have expanded our vision. We now also carry quality mill-spun and dyed yarns. Like our artisanal fibers, these are quality yarns ... whether they are truly affordable or can best be described as luxury fibers

You can’t understand how wonderful these materials are until you’ve worked with them. It is as if the artisan stays with them to add an extra measure of creativity. They can elevate knitting and crocheting from craft to art.

By the way: If you're a small producer of high-quality handspun or hand-dyed yarn made of natural fibers, or hand-made fasteners that aren't widely distributed, do consider sharing photographs of your work by e-mail.
