Northeast Fiber Arts Center

Home > Yarn Index

Customers look for yarns in different ways.....some seek yarns by gauge, some by project, some know the manufacturer or brand and others come just looking for an "alpaca". Sometimes we want to hone in on the best value and other times we want to indulge in a special yarn for a special project!

So I've tried to organize the website in such a way that you can search by whatever your criteria is. But since the categories I've offered immediately below (i.e. uber luxurious, basic value) just offer my top 3 picks, if you don't find what you want there, please search by "fiber content" or "designer" too so you really see all your options!

Yarns are cross referenced....for example you might find the same yarn listed under both "Juniper Moon", "Alpaca" and "great for scarves/shawls/cowls"!

Yarns by Gauge

Yarns with Long Repeats or Gradations

If you want a little something special and uber luxurious - for a cowl

If you're looking for a basic value yarn

My picks for an "investment" sweater - you know, a classic that you'll wear for years to come and that you are going to spend some time knitting - so you want to LOVE and SAVOR every minute of the yarn gliding thru your fingers as you knit it....and you want it to hold its shape and look good years to come!
