Event & Schedule news!

2019 Hill Country Yarn Crawl PassportThe 2019 Hill Country Yarn Crawl will be October 11-20.
YARN CRAWL PASSPORTS NOW AVAILABLE! Passports are $15; early birds get the 2019 Crawl bag with their passport. If you pre-ordered, we've set aside your passport(s) and bag(s). 

What's a yarn crawl? It's a fun way to see all (or as many as you want) of the LYSs within 85 miles of the state capitol. Each store has a daily drawing, gives out two complementary patterns, and have all kinds of yarn-spirational events. Crawlers buy a passport for $15 and get it stamped at each store. Depending on the number of shops the Crawler visits, they can qualify for a grand prize drawing. 

Yarnivore's trunk shows include Blue Mule Fibers, Bluebonnet Crafters, Crafting My Chaos, and Panorama Fibers. We're planning all this and more, woohoo!

NOTE: Yarnivore's hours during the 2019 Crawl (10/11-20) will be 9a-6p. This is because all of the participating stores will have the same hours and be less confusing for Crawlers. 

Check out our calendar for links to all scheduled classes and events.

What is a Yarnivore?

If a carnivore is an animal that gets its energy from eating meat, then it’s only a small stretch to think that a Yarnivore gets their energy from playing with fiber, right? Yarnivores are people obsessed with fiber – lace through bulky, cotton through cashmere.

Yarnivore is a local yarn shop on San Antonio’s northwest side (in Castle Hills), catering to fiber fans of all kinds – crocheters, knitters, spinners, and weavers. In addition to all kinds of yarn and fiber, we sell books, patterns, accessories, tools, and larger equipment like looms and spinning wheels. We carry mass market, boutique, and local independent dyed yarns (yes, we have fiber artists in Texas!) Finally, we love to feed your passion by offering you classes and private lessons. For the latest on all of our products, follow us on Facebook or swing by the store.

We pride ourselves on inspiring you to pick up fiber and tool and using your imagination to create a one of a kind project. Join us to browse or bring in your current work-in-progress and hang out on our comfy couch and chairs for a while.

Hiya! We're STILL (gah!) converting our website & point-of-sale to new software. Every product has to be manually entered, including any photos. In the year since we converted, we've made a lot of progress, but still need to finish some of the cosmetics and organizing. In the meantime, loading photos and descriptions is pretty time-consuming, so please be patient with us. :)
