Rosanna having fun with customers at Mendocino Yarn Shop. Don't you love her orange "Kid Silk Haze" sweater.

Greetings! We are so grateful to all of the customers who have filled out a customer survey! We have listened to your requests and will now be carrying more Addi Turbo and Dreamz needles. We love hearing what customers like and want and will continue to make the effort to be your best local yarn shop ever!

We have a few changes at the yarn shop. We now offer more finished textiles, clothing and accessories. We have recently brought in some exquisite and reasonably-priced scarves and bags from Morocco, which were hand-picked for us by fellow knitter Linda Mercurio.

Most are hand-woven and all are made from natural materials such as linen, agave and silk. See photos from Linda's recent trip, below.

As usual, we are offering some fabulous classes this month, including some that were specifically requested on your surveys. Hope you find one that fits into your schedule!

p.s. We have just made a last-minute addition to the class schedule: beginning knitting returns in May! Please call the shop for details.


Made from 100% recycled fibers, Indigo comes in a palette of blues and playful brights, and creates a beautiful finished fabric for you to wear and
enjoy--fabulous patterns, too!


Mixer is a fine and fanciful yarn made up of soft, lightweight materials fused together to create a beautiful devoré fabric with fabulous drape.
