Please note: new shop hours start 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!
Our fall class schedule is coming together: see our latest offerings for weaving, crochet, beading, and of course, knitting!
If we needed any more convincing that summer is officially here, we have the weekly Los Altos Farmers Market and our own Fresh Picks in Season. Save 10% off one featured yarn every Thursday through August, with new pattern suggestions and “tastings” every week.
Uncommon Threads is a full service yarn shop for all of your knitting and crocheting needs. We feature yarns by Rowan, Berroco, Jamieson, Cascade, Imperial Yarn, Madelinetosh, Malabrigo, Crystal Palace, Plymouth, Classic Elite, Dale of Norway, The Fibre Company, Trendsetter, Muench, Koigu, Opal, Artyarns, Bergere de France and more.
