Portland Yarn Shop Specializing in Custom Yarns

Yarnia is the only Portland yarn shop where you can design your very own custom yarn blend. You choose the fiber, color, thickness, and amount, and we’ll create your custom yarn for you right on the spot — perfect for knitting, crocheting, or weaving.

Not only that, but our yarn is sold not by the skein, nor the hank, but by the pound.

Please note that we closed our brick & mortar shop in 2016, and are now online-only. Peruse our house blends online or hop on over to our Custom Yarn Creator for all the great yarns and creative options you found at our physical location! In-town pickup is still available for our local customers who don't want to pay to have their orders shipped. Simply select "in-town pickup" as your delivery option at checkout to avoid shipping fees.

Don’t know how much yarn you’ll need for a project? Or perhaps you know how many skeins or yards you tend to use, but don’t know how to translate that to ounces? We’ve got lots of tools to help, and can provide email snapshots or physical samples of your yarn before we wind it up, to make sure it’s exactly what you want.

Please note that our yarns are stranded, which means that they are not plied together. While stranded yarn is easy to get used to, we want to make sure that's clear upfront so that there are no surprises when your yarn arrives!

We are a Portland yarn shop specializing in budget-friendly, custom knitting, crocheting, and weaving yarn on cones. If you don’t already know exactly what you’re looking for, we can help you design your perfect yarn via email, phone or chat. Have questions about how this all works? Read up on our handy FAQ, and then feel free to email us with any questions you may have, or use the chat box in the bottom left corner of the screen. We typically are able to reply to all inquiries within 24 hours.
