Introducing Misfit Yarns!

  • A skein of white yarn with pink and purple speckles.

Misfit Yarns is a small batch indie dyer based in Chicago, IL. I was scheduled to vend at YarnCon (my first big event!), but due to COVID-19, it was canceled. It is important to keep our community safe, so I understand the decision by the organizers. You can also keep yourself safe by shopping at home and considering adding some Misfit Yarns into your stash! I ship worldwide and I love seeing what my customers knit and crochet with my yarns. I’m also able to do custom orders or colorways in different bases. Thanks for checking out my shop!
