One of the things we love about yarn is how diverse it is. We love yarns of all gauges, all colors, all fibers, all constructions. Each of them has something to offer and something for us to experience.

We feel the same way about this community. We get to interact with so many people from so many walks of life and so many backgrounds that we're always learning. Thank you for choosing to be a part of our world.

We wish you and yours the best this holiday season.

Auntie Woolie Says...
Auntie Wooly 2021


We understand the draw of the big box chains, but buying from local, independently owned shops drives far more revenue to local communities. We're grateful for everyone that shops with us, and other locally owned, brick and mortar stores. Small businesses like ours are truly the backbone of the US economy, representing 48% of all jobs!

More importantly, it's small, local, brick and mortar shops that help create a real community.

Shop Small!

Until next time, please stay well and...

Happy Stitching!
