I have shopped with you for several years. Here are my reasons why:

1. You're a women-owned and operated business. As a sole proprietor myself, I like to support other entrepreneurs.

2. Your attentiveness. My orders are always well-packed.

3. Prompt shipping. I have never had to ask you when my order will ship. I get all of my orders quickly, save for that time the USPS sent it on a joyride across the Midwest (which was not your fault at all!)

4. Great photos! I have never received a hank/skein only to look at it and think, "This isn't what I thought it would be." Your photos are accurate and help me know what to expect.

I’ve shopped with you for ages! I think SSYC is an outstanding business. The service is great. The variety of yarns offered is outstanding, something for everyone. All the things you expect, such as super-speedy shipping, prompt responses to any questions, and so on. Tons of support for small dyers. But the best part for me is the photos. I have never been disappointed by any skein. I can compare skeins online and feel confident I’ve got a good combo. Taking the time to photo skeins from every batch must be a huge effort, but thank you so much for taking that time. It is what always draws me back to SSYC.
My thanks to the entire SSYC crew for continuing on as long as you safely can during this time.


Good Afternoon Allison, I just got my email shipping confirmation on my order. We are still okay here. DH went shopping at Walmart yesterday. Hoping all he brought home was groceries. 😷
What I love about your yarn store is you and your crew. You make buying yarn lots more fun. I like the Kits and Clubs. I love the pretty project bags and stitch markers. I like the free stuff you offer and best of all you have a large variety of yarns. I guess I have my own mini version of your store. I want one of every kind and color. I want to try them all. To see which ones I like best or better than others or not at all. It makes me happy to open your packages, to see the beautiful colors and to touch the soft yarns. Thank you ☺️ very very much. Stay safe a Sweet Girl.


One of the best online shopping experiences ever! Great customer service, quick responses to questions, help with color/yarn guys do it all. Plus you offer such quality yarns and from so many indie companies!

And like everyone else...I especially love the photos you have for every colorway. They are always clear and accurate and makes shopping so easy!

Thanks to all of you at SSYC!!!

Allison, I think I started shopping with you fairly early into your business. Congratulations on 15 years. I can't believe it's been that long. You definitely have some of the prettiest sock yarn (and other yarns) that are available.

Good luck to you and your family in getting through these trying times.


Hello. I am a long time SSYC shopper. The yarn is always wonderful. So many beautiful colors to chose from and they always look like the pictures! I love the sale section and the yarn clubs. Both have gotten me to try new yarns. The blog has such good ideas and combos of colors and fun stuff to make you feel like you have walked into a friendly yarn shop around the corner. Take care everyone!


I have loved your store since it has begun. It helps that I live close to your store and get to experience the yarn in person. I love that you are always offering new yarn for us yarn lovers. I feel like I have to try it all but I always seem to also go back to one of my favorites- OPAL...
Take Care


I am a long time shopper at SSYC both online and in person! The attention to detail and suggestions by the staff is appreciated.

I love shopping in person though. Being able to to see and touch all the yarnie goodness is my favorite way to spend part of a day! If you're coming from outside of Fort Wayne, plan to spend quite a bit of time. SSYC has LOTS of yarn ;)
