1918 Yarn Company


1918 Yarn Company is the house-dyed yarn of Ohio’s Harps & Thistles Yarn Emporium. Owner Cindy Michael says, “We chose the name 1918 Yarn Company because it’s the year our building was built and this building was where our company came to life. The bases are named for the buildings here in historic Downtown Cuyahoga Falls.” Recently, Cindy’s granddaughter Mattie has joined the team as a dyeing apprentice.
