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 tracks knit and crochet designers, spinning fiber dyers and makers, and yarn spinners and dyers. 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.

Inclusion and Responsibility

Yarn Database is a variegated list of makers for a variegated group of users. You are welcome here.

Any listings that cause excessive stitch tension will be removed. Criteria include but are not limited to any form of bigotry (including cultural appropriation), unethical practices, or a pattern of bad customer service. Please share any concerns you have about the contents of Yarn Database. More
