About Us

We are located at 409 South Washington Street in Moscow, Idaho and we are open to the public!

[also, our e-store is expanding rapidly, please pardon the mess!]



Open to the public Tuesday, Wednesday, & Friday, 1pm-5

we promise to re-assess saturdays soon!
If you are experiencing a yarn emergency and can't make these hours, please call us (208) 882-7700 or email [email protected] to set up a personal shopping appointment.


Shopping online for shipping or curbside pick up remain great options!


About us:  We are a family-owned and operated business in our 10th year of business!  After much deliberation, we have made the decision to move into summer with reduced hours. Community safety is top priority. Please follow social distancing and mask wearing guidelines when you visit. 

Saturdays are usually our busiest day of the week, but to discourage large groups of shoppers and a packed store, we have chosen to omit weekend hours through August.


What you can do to help:

Touch as little as possible

Serious shoppers only, friends wait outside

Bring your own hand-san and use it

Wear a mask




What we will do to help:

Continue to aid your purchases with phone calls, texts, and emails

Sanitize credit card machine and front desk frequently

Control traffic at the door if it gets crowded
