Made in America Extravaganza

We’re feeling very patriotic in our red, white and blue and want to highlight companies that produce 100% Made-in-America yarns and needles.  The sheep are raised in the states, the trees are grown on American soil, and the end result is uniquely American.

 

Pagewood Farm

   

Giant Purls and St. Elias 

Pagewood Farm yarns boast innovative textures and captivating hand-dyed colors.  These small-batch yarns are one-of-a-kind and would make amazing accessories.  See our full stash of Pagewood Farm yarns.

 

Twirl

 

We love Twirl so much we’ve blogged about it before.  Twirl features free-range, humanely raised animals and naturally dyed and undyed colorways.  Plus the labels are so darling, they feature descriptions of the animals who gave their wool.

Brown Sheep

Brown Sheep is a classic yarn often used for felting (but don’t worry, they make washable yarns as well); they have been committed to keeping  their products made in America since 1980.

 

Serendipity

 

 

 

 

These ImagiKnit engraved needles are handmade in Rhode Island from strong, smooth wood.   You can shop happily knowing you are supporting a company that employs physically and mentally handicapped adults.  Take a look at the full range of needles here (especially the rainbow-topped design only available at ImagiKnit)!

Brittany

Made from California grown birch, Brittany straight needles, double points and crochet hooks have all the best qualities of wood — smooth, strong and easy to wield.  Crocheters out there should consider Brittany for the stunning handles on the hooks.
