Because Happiness Feels Warm and Fuzzy…

…you should have more yarn! Northern California’s changeable weather is no match for the versatile and luxurious yarns we have on our shelves. From lightweight wraps to easy, elegant sweaters and punchy accessories, we have everything you need for your best knit and crochet projects. Our fall class list is winding down as the holidays approach, though you’ll still find plenty of inspiration for winter knitting and gift ideas.

Take advantage of our Black Friday and Beyond Sale, where selected yarns are 30% off and selected books are $5 each or 5 for $15. We also have a limited collection of shop samples for sale–this could be your lucky day!

While you can see our new fall yarns online, the best way to appreciate the glorious sheen of Malabrigo Mora or the exquisite softness of Shibui Maai and Dune is to come in to the shop to see and touch for yourself!

Please note that Uncommon Threads will be closed on December 25 and January 1. The shop will close at 4 p.m. on December 24, and December 31, and we will be open 12 – 5 p.m. on December 26.

Open Knit/Crochet 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.

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,  Ravelry and now Instagram.
