Wool n' Wares

Welcome to the “new” Wool ‘N Wares: new space, new yarns, and lots of new classes!

We are fully moved into our new space at 21580 Willamette Drive (Highway 43), practically next door to our prior location in West Linn. Feel free to stop by and check out our new home. We have lots more room to stock your favorite yarns and more room to offer some unique classes. We’re now open six days a week: Monday through Friday, 11-5:30; Saturday 11-4. Parking is free and plentiful.

Whether you’re an experienced knitter, or learning your first stitch, Wool ‘N Wares is a bright, cheerful place to browse Portland’s best selection of yarns, receive expert instruction, and share ideas with fellow knitters. All of our staff members are expert knitters in their own right and are always happy to assist you.

Yarns and fibers for every taste and budget

Wool ‘N Wares is the oldest yarn shop in Portland and we have a tradition of carrying a wide selection of yarns and fibers you won’t find anywhere else.

We carry an expanded selection of your favorite brands like: Berroco, Cascade, Crystal Palace, Lamb’s Pride, Malabrigo, Misti Alpaca, Opal, Plymouth Encore, Rowan, Regia Design Line by Arne and Carlos, Shepherd’s Wool, Shibui, and The Fiber Company. We also feature hard-to-find yarns and fibers from independent dyers such as Knitted Wit, Black Trillium, and Alexandra’s Crafts. From time to time, you’ll also find unique hand-spun yarns created by our own in-house spinning expert, Karen Schellinkhout.

Needles and notions

We carry needles and interchangeable sets from respected manufacturers such as Skacel’s Addi Turbo line, ChiaoGoo, Knitters Pride, and Denise. You’ll also find bags and notions by della Q, Lantern Moon, Offhand Designs, and Chic-a.  In addition, we offer a wide selection of metal and wood crochet hooks, and felting supplies.

Whether you’re looking for a specific yarn, need help with a project, or just want to browse the latest selections of yarns and fibers, stop by and see us at Wool ‘N Wares. We’re ready to help you!
