Trendsetter Paradigm!
We just got this fabulous new yarn in and it's a big hit! It's a wonderfully soft merino with beautiful color gradients and just a hint of sparkle from the poly metallic. It knits from a sport weigh to a DK, and with approximately 660 yards on a ball, it's perfect for those shawls and garments you've been thinking about making.


Throw kits!

We have always loved these beautiful, hand-dyed throw kits from Mountain Colors. The Warm & Wooly throw kit is made up of different yarns and beautiful hand-dyed colors that combine to make a show piece. Perfect for a gift, or for yourself!

They come with 2 knit patterns and a crochet pattern.

As fall approaches we also start thinking about learning new skills or trying new projects. We hope we can help inspire you to pick up a new project today.

The weather is beautiful in Cambria in the fall, so stop in and enjoy the Central Coast Experience!

Weaving Weekend

It's almost time and we still have a couple of seats left!

We're offering two classes suitable for a wide range of skill sets, from absolute beginners to weavers with some experience looking to upgrade their skills.

Maybe you've always wanted to learn to weave. Maybe you bought a rigid heddle loom but feel you could learn more about it. If this sounds like you, you'll want to join us on the weekend of September 20 to September 22 for our second annual Weaving Immersion Weekend!

Don't have a loom? Doesn't matter, you can rent a loom from us!


Spaces are limited, so the earlier you sign up, the better chance you have of securing your spot. The weaving immersion intro class is filling up fast!


Since 1968, Manos del Uruguay has been owned by the women that produce these fabulous items. It's a fair trade yarn run by a Women's Cooperative in Uruguay and has been providing good jobs for women allowing them to stay in their villages and take care of their families. We're delighted to carry every yarn they make in every color.
Manos Alma

One of the newer yarns from our friends at Manos del Uruguay is Alma. Alma is a 100% Superwash Merino fingering weight yarn that comes with lots of yardage in a 100 gram skein.

It's soft, comes in a variety of semi-solid as well as variegated colors, perfect for so many projects.

We think you'll love this free pattern that uses two skeins of Alma to create this beautiful and functional piece.
