Sale Trunk!

Back when we were open in the usual way, our Sale Trunk was a special place where discontinued yarns would pop up at deep discounts. The selection changed frequently, and you never knew what treasures might be found there at 30% – 40% off.

Now that we’re closed to walk-in visits due to COVID-19, we’re delighted to bring our Sale Trunk to our website! You can browse it virtually on this page, then use our online order form to place requests. Quantities vary from color to color and yarn to yarn – some we have lots of, while others are the last of their kind. If you’re curious about any of them, reach out and ask!
