String Yarnscashmere has long been associated with style, and now it is here! We have five different yarns in stock - a little something for everyone, from 100% cashmere, to merino/cashmere blends, and more.
We also have String's Winter 2018 lookbook and their exclusive patterns available in store with your purchase of String Yarns. We especially love their fun cable knit cashmere hats with fur (or faux-fur) pom poms and the Meghan Hooded Vest by Lidia Karabinech - knit with bulky weight Zurich.

10,000 New Knitters is this Saturday, Nov 10th!
Some people think that knitting is a dying art. Some think it's only for grandmothers. Some think "I could never learn that" "It's too complicated" "I'm all thumbs" THINK AGAIN. This Saturday, Westport Yarns, along with many other stores around the nation, is joining Skacel to meet the challenge of creating 10,000 New Knitters. Every participant will receive a "New Knit Kit", which includes a ball of special edition HiKoo Sueno Worsted yarn, one pair of size US 8 (5.00mm) Addi Linos straight needles, and an exclusive pattern for beginner-friendly fingerless mitts.
If you provide the enthusiasm and the willingness to try, Westport Yarns will provide the expertise to get you started. We have created sign-up sheets for sessions throughout the day. All you have to do is call us and sign up for a session that works for you. Hurry, because they are filling up fast!
If your already knit, but know friends who have always wanted to try, spread the word! The knitting community is always ready to embrace newcomers. And who knows? The next Elizabeth Zimmerman may be out there!
