OUr Shop & Community
In addition to our yarn brand, we have a brick and mortar store in Pacifica, California. Our little city is located on historic highway 1 and we are famous for our fog, beautiful beaches, whale migration trail, and surfing. Oh, and we are home to the world famous dog surfing competition. At our shop we have a peekaboo view of the Pacific Ocean and are walking distance from the beach. Our typically year-round cool weather is perfect for knitting and crocheting!
We are a female-owned business and family run. We believe knitting and crocheting isn’t just a hobby… it’s a post-apocalyptic life skill. And we love anything with yarn, thread or cord. We have classes to grow your knitting, crochet, felting, and macramé skills.
OUR CORE VALUES:
Do No Harm: We work hard to make sure the products we sell don’t harm the environment and all the fluffy little critters that live in it. We care about ethical dye practices, the humane treatment of animals, and sustainability.
Community & Inclusivity Matters: It is our aim to share our shop space with our local crafting community. We are so lucky to live in beautiful Pacifica and we want to know our neighbors and provide a safe place to gather and enjoy. If you craft, then you are our people and we want to know you. Like all good Pacificans, we love visitors and aim to show them our hospitality. You could call us '“passionately local”, and we’d love it. We are inclusive of ALL and FIERCELY SUPPORT our BIPOC and LGBTQIA communities.
Making Stuff is Good: Creating something is nourishment for the soul plus there are well established health benefits including strengthening mental agility, promoting relaxation, and maintaining joint flexibility. We all appreciate the thoughtfulness of a handmade gift and if feels good to give something personal to a friend or loved one.
Family Counts: Creativity is ageless and bonds us together. The skills passed down from one generation to the other make a precious legacy. Making stuff together is the lifeblood of family, and sometimes that family is also made up of dear friends (we chose them after all). Take a look at the gallery below to see a few of our yarn family, whom we love!
