About the CO-OP


Why a yarn co-op?

The previous yarn store (Warm Hearts) sadly closed. However, the need for fantastic yarn in the Los Alamos Community still remained! We started the co-op to provide wonderful yarn and knitting/crochet products. Also, to keep the yarn community CLOSE-KNIT!


Our Yarn

 Universal Yarns, Cascade Yarns, and more! Email or call to inquire what specific yarns we have in stock!


Our Other Products

  • Eucalan, a no-rinse wool wash is a great way to keep your knits fresh and clean.
  • Knit Blockers and T-pins for a better blocking experience. 
  • Stitch Markers in a variety of shapes and colors.
  • Needles and Crochet Hooks in all sizes.
  • Yarn Bags to hold your many amazing projects.
  • Consignment pieces from local stitches.
