About Yarn Yarn

Yarn Yarn

We work with women in India. Check out our Folksy Interview http://blog.folksy.com/2016/06/08/yarnyarn-a-yarn-journey-to-bihar-india

Over the last 10 years YarnYarn has gained a following amongst the knitting, crochet, weaving, jewellery making, rug hooking and fibre groups all over the world who are looking for magical and inspiring yarns and craft supplies for their creative endeavours. Each skein of yarn tells a story of its own. Each yarn has been dyed to our specifications and provides countless crafting options for the fibre and hand crafting communities. With every purchase our customers make, with every sale of our yarns and hand crafted products we aim to support and provide sustainable living within these communities. In many parts of India spinning yarns is their only source of income. By selling these yarns we give directly back to these communities. We want to create a sustainable cycle of employment and women's empowerment. If we continue to buy these products these villages continue to survive. The artisans that make your products have a quality of life and do not need to go to the cities in search of work that doesn't exist and live in slums. All the yarns I sell are hand selected by me, they truly are an inspiration for fibre artists!

Folksy were kind enough to interview us about our trip to India 2016 visiting the people who make our yarns!
