In the Mood for Color

Take any pattern from basic to breathtaking with the gorgeous color palettes of beautiful gradient yarns and color-drenched handpaints! We have fresh stock of Dragonfly Pixie, Damsel and Traveller, as well as Freia Bulky and Merino Silk Sport. Take a look at all our new spring/summer yarns, or browse the list of yarns in stock.

It’s time for some spring cleaning! Starting April 1, save 30-50% on our discontinued yarns–shop early for the best selection.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in our Finish It in February event! We were so thrilled to have so many amazing contributions–especially from our first-timers, who clearly have what it takes to soar. It was so much fun that we’re planning to do it again, soon. Will you be ready? Check out our spring classes for inspiration, new skills, or a friendly group to spend some time with.

Please note that Uncommon Threads will be closed on Sunday, April 5, for the Easter holiday.

Open Knit Night is every Tuesday evening from 6 – 8 p.m. Take a couple of hours for yourself each week and knit or crochet with fellow enthusiasts.

Please note: new shop hours started August 1. We’ll be closed on Mondays, giving us a day to catch up on administrative tasks and plan for exciting fall projects. And we’ve added a few extra hours through the rest of the week to make it more convenient for you to shop!

Be the first to learn about new yarns, sales and classes! Sign up for our email newsletter–we do not share our list with anyone. You can also find us on Facebook and Ravelry.
