artisan kits & accessories for knitters

Little Skein in the Big Wool is a small, artisan shop that offers original, superbly crafted accessories for knitters. I started the shop on Etsy in fall 2012, around the idea of offering themed, adorable and addictive knitting accessories -- all using the highest-quality materials and uncommon fabrics. Today, my shop is predominantly located at and my product line includes:

-- Limited edition "Read. Knit. Remember." kits, with yarn, exclusive patterns, and accessories from some of the best independent fiber artists, curated just for you
-- Knitting project bags in a range of sizes and made from original, Japanese and other hard-to-find fabrics
-- Stitch marker sets made from the highest quality European and Japanese materials
-- Stationery for knitters designed especially for handmade and hand-knitted gifts and featuring unique, original artwork

Everything at Little Skein in the Big Wool is done by hand, and most of it is (still) done just by me. Since starting the shop, I've been honored to meet hundreds of new knitters, have sent thousands of handmade items to new homes, and have found my own creativity bursting from the seams.

As Little Skein in the Big Wool, you'll find me on a host of social media sites, where I share behind the scenes news and pictures from studio Little Skein. Please friend/follow me -- I'd love to share what I'm working on and learn more about what you're doing.

    Owner, Maker

    I am a maker--a passionate knitter, sewist, home cook and all around fiber enthusiast. I have a stash that's bursting at the seams, and I'd love to have a sheep in my back yard, but my family says no.
