What is Local Yarn Store Day?

Local Yarn Store Day is a yearly event on the last Saturday of April, and it’s a great day for yarn lovers. The National Needle Arts Association (TNNA) created this fiber artists’ holiday to celebrate crafting and promote foot traffic to local yarn stores in the United States and Canada. To prepare for the event, yarn shops offer unique products usually available in limited quantities. Saturday, April 27th will be the seventh annual LYS, or Local Yarn Store Day!

Why shop Yarnalia at Local Yarn Stores?

In the age of instant shopping gratification, there’s something special about shopping our yarns in person at a local yarn store. As you explore our offering of bases from lace-weight to bulky, you’ll get an accurate look at each yarn’s colors, handle the fibers, and lay out all your favorites for your next project. You can’t possibly know the fluffy lightness of a ball of Joy, our 100% baby alpaca, lace-weight yarn, or experience the softness and durability of Marvel, without feeling it for yourself.

Yarnalia Stockists

What better way to celebrate Local Yarn Store Day this Saturday, April 27th, than to grab your yarn-loving besties and get to one of our stockists to experience Yarnalia yarn in person?

Let us introduce you to four featured local yarn shops that carry Yarnalia!
