Welcome to Yarn Database

So, what is Yarn Database? This searchable, sortable site is designed to help you keep track of your favorite designers and dyers across platforms, and find new favorites. It lists knit and crochet designers, spinning fiber dyers and makers, yarn spinners and dyers, accessory shops, and tech editors. You mark your favorites, and I’ll keep them up to date.

It’s a different approach than a pattern directory, more in keeping with “slow fashion” and building a community of makers. It de-emphasizes popularity algorithms in favor of finding makers you love.
