Darn Good Yarn

Darn Good Yarn is an online yarn store that is dedicated to supporting women's economic empowerment, fair trade practices, and principles of environmental sustainability. They offer dozens of reclaimed and sustainable fibers, cloths, and yarn, allowing knitters, crocheters, and other crafter's access to these rare and special items. In doing so, we hope to encourage the joy of crocheting, knitting, beautiful garments, and ethical consumerism.

Darn Good Yarn takes manufactured waste, which would normally be sent to landfills, and repurposes it to create spectacular pieces of art. The process begins by gathering manufacturing remnants and seconds of sari materials. These recycled and reclaimed sari fabrics and garments are torn by hand and sewn together and dyed. This reclamation process have saved 100,000 pounds of textile waste from heading into landfills and rivers. Just check out this beauiful herbal sunrise shawl.

It's a purchase to not only feel good about, but also a story to share. Each and every time you knit a scarf or wear a skirt, YOU are making a difference.
