Very soon we'll be partying it up yarn-style here in the shop for our 11th ANNIVERSARY! Woot! Come see us on Saturday, May 28 from 10-4 for awesome yarn, super sale stuff, tasty noshing, and contests. And, of course, we'll continue the party online- not just throughout the month, but through the WHOLE SUMMER with special kits, colors from our fave dyers, sales, MANY contests and all sorts of good things. I feel like celebrating passing the DECADE MARK as a yarn shop owner (some say Head Temptress) all because of YOU. My team and I are very, very appreciative of what you've done for us, and I hope it shows!
Hard to believe that nearly 11 years ago, I started Simply Socks Yarn Company in a spare bedroom of my house. For over 6 years, I did every job myself. I moved out to the country to have more room for the shop, then embarked on the adventure of restoring our 1940's post office into our shop and dye studio. Moving into this space allowed us to continue to grow to serve what you want in a yarn store. We continued to offer the best in sock yarn and shipped it to you super quick, but then we could also dye up special things like our Poste Yarn stripes and more. We are able to open our doors to you once a week for in-person shopping and encouragement, and I have to say that I love the balance that we have.
This past year I've dubbed "yarn overload," meaning I've added many new lines to the shop, new weights of yarn and doubled our shop fixtures to accommodate oh-so-much loveliness. I'm so glad you adore yarn as much as I do and I look forward to finding the newest and best for you for years to come!
