Knit One Purl Two is proud to purchase yarns from companies that support community and causes both locally and globally. Companies like Rewya, Mirasol, Juniper Moon Farm, and Malabrigo Yarns support worldwide needs such as children’s education, shepherds and their families, and the Community Supported Agricultural Model. We also carry yarns that are hand dyed in Chicago from companies such as Lorna’s Laces and Mrs. Crosby. Locally, we work with 2 Guys Yarn, located right here in Cherry Valley.
We offer a diverse variety of high quality yarns and supplies at many price points. From luxury yarns like Artyarns and Alchemy to well known from Berroco, Louisa Harding, Ella Ray and Rowan we are sure to have yarns that fit any budget. At Knit One Purl Two, we showcase samples of most of the yarns we carry so any knitter or crocheter can get a feel for the yarns they want to work with.
