November 25, 2020 Greetings all! HOLIDAY HOURS! Normally, Yarnivore is open daily, 11a-5p Monday-Saturday and 12p-5p Sunday. Over the holidays, we'll be closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. We're continuing to work smart so we can serve everyone while we keep staff and the fiber community safe. Thanks to all of you for keeping us going!
If you're shopping in-store, we require that everyone wear a mask that covers both their mouth and nose. Hand sanitizer is available at the front door and register, plus everyone is welcome to wash their hands in our bathroom. If you need to buy a mask, we have some available.
Yarnivore continues to offer online and in-store shopping, choose what works best for you. We can also assist customers over the phone. Need curbside pickup? No problem, just call when you reach the store.
If you're looking for gift ideas for fiber lovers, we have a variety of kits and fiber that will inspire everyone from beginner to expert!
You can support two local businesses (Bluebonnet Crafters and Yarnivore) when you give a Turtle Loom. These fun kits come in several sizes and have everything you need to weave hexagon-shaped fabric, just add yarn! Gabi, the engineering genius behind the Turtle Loom, has a bunch of YouTube videos to teach and inspire you.
Want to gift a tapestry weaving kit? Tapestry weaving is a great way to introduce someone to weaving because it's simple to get started. The Black Sheep DIY Tapestry Loom comes with either just the loom or with yarn. This kit is fun to assemble (yes, fun!). We also carry Harrisville Peg Looms, as well as Schacht Lilli, 18" and 25" tapestry looms. The Peg Loom and Lilli are lap-friendly looms for kids and adults. The 18" and 25" tapestry looms are better suited for sitting at a table.
Our latest shipments include: -Abacus bracelets by Needle Joy that count up to 499 rows. These local-made row counter bracelets are beautiful and functional. You'll have to come in and try one! -The Caron Collection Watercolours. These stunning hand dyed skeins look gorgeous on needlepoint. -Zorn Junction Yarn in fingering and DK weights. This local dyer produces unique hand-dyed yarn in unusual fibers, including Rambouillet and Debuillet. We're in the process of photographing these lovelies, so they're not visible online yet. -Premier's Snow Cone and Bunny, both jumbo (#7). These work up fast into snuggly cowls or blankets. You can also use Bunny to trim your wintry projects. -Lion Brand's Off the Hook solid, Faux Fur, and Magic yarns. These yarns are looped, so you don't need needles or hooks. Off the Hook Magic works up into pillow sized images, like smiley emojis or paw prints. Drop in and see for yourself how easy these fun yarns are for young and old. -Vineyard Silk's Merino Wool fiber for needlepointing. - Plymouth Yarn Encore (Worsted & Mega), Hot Cakes, and Galway . - Chaos Fiber Co (formerly Crafting My Chaos) in tonals, micro stripes, self-striping, and variegated fingering weight (#1). - Fabulous, one-of-a-kind wooden yarn bowls from an Arizona based artist. - Hoooked's Zpagetti is back in stock! We also now have Hoooked super cute amigurumi kits like Reindeer Rue. - Scheepjes, including supplies for making baby toys, like Wobble Balls, Squeakers, and wooden teething rings. - More colors of Universal Yarn's Bella Chenille Big, perfect for winter blankets. - Texas' own Turtle Looms! We're now fully stocked in all sizes :) - Another box from Alice Peterson, including more Stitch & Zip kits, Mini Stockings, Stitch-Up Ornaments, and their Pre-Designed Pouches (accessory bags).
We have more shipments on the way as we stock up for gift making & giving season! We'll update you as more boxes arrive or stay tuned to @YarnivoreSA on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Be safe, be well, be kind, Caryn & the Yarnivore crew
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. :)
