Absolutely beautifully soft yarn, I have never knitted with such soft yarn. I love the colour, it looks amazing in sunlight. I am making a scarf for my nephew's grade 12 grad, I doubled the yarn And it is turning out wonderful. I wish there were more colours available, my only complaint.

About

Have yarn, will travel!

So I spend my summers living and working in Southeast Alaska and have the good fortune of being friends with Melissa Highfill, the former owner of Seaside Yarns in Juneau (closed in September 2017 so Missy could move closer to family). Through her shop, I have met other great knitters during the Saturday afternoon knitting circle. I got this crazy idea to open my own yarn shop, too, but was not prepared to invest in enough inventory to stock an entire shop, let alone lease space and deal with the issues that go along with a retail location. So in January of 2014, The Traveling Yarn Shop, then Ohio's only traveling yarn shop, opened for business.

I load up the Scion xB with the yarn, tables and a tent, and travel to local and regional events and festivals with my great yarn and people have responded enthusiastically. It's been great fun! But I cannot be everywhere so an online option was a good idea.

My goal is to provide quality and unique yarns at fair prices. The Etsy site is exclusively for my hand-dyed yarns, Maple City Yarns. Thanks for stopping by!

    I love to knit and to be around yarn so opening a yarn shop sounded like a great idea. I love to travel so why not travel, too! But I can't be everywhere so having an online option was a great idea, too.

Production partners

    Once a year, the soft, white wool is harvested from sheep, and the process of transforming this naturally renewable resource into a wide selection of fibers and yarns begins. All the wool is specially milled without harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures, leaving it comfortable, soft and pure.

So why does The Traveling Yarn Shop have a website? Because I can't travel everywhere at once! But the yarn will still travel to you! My own hand-dyed selection called Maple City Yarn is available here! Thank you for visiting the shop!
