McKnittey – McKinney, TX – www.mcknittey.com

We’re two friends who met through quilting and realized we had similar goals in life. We each wanted meaningful work – work that would make an impact. This need to “make a difference” has inspired us to open a store with yarn that is mindfully produced. We strive to provide you with the most natural, sustainable fingering and lace weight yarns. We are not a big box craft store and our yarn is not big box either. 

Many of the yarns we carry are made from alternative fibers. We invite you to explore yak, llama, possum and pearl. Some are free trade yarns. With each purchase, you will be impacting the futures of orphans and vulnerable children by providing education and resources that will allow their dreams to become realities. Come be a part of our community.


Morandia -MIB – Jonesboro, AR – www.loopsandsticks.blogspot.com

Morandia’s MIB Fibers originated as a glimmer in the eye of a librarian who enjoys playing with color. Each skein of yarn or braid of roving tends to be a one-of-a-kind. While I have tried “scientific dyeing,” I’m much more a “fly by the seat of my pants” dyer, hence non-standard colorways. With the exception of a few shows during the year, my fibers are generally sold through local yarn stores.

There is a variety of colors in both Huacaya and Suri.  Come on by and say hello.



 

Red Farmhouse Fibers – Yukon, Ok – www.redfarmhousejacobs.com
