Connecticut Magazine’s Best Yarn Store 2013


We’ve been keeping some big news from you all. Connecticut Magazine recently chose Black Sheep Yarns as the best yarn store in the state. We couldn’t be more thrilled, and it got us thinking: what makes us so unique?

Our customers, of course! We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for your support. You help fill the shop with beautiful projects, wonderful conversation, and pleasant company. Thank you for helping to make us the best yarn shop in Connecticut.




We’ve got some more news to share:

As you can see we’ve got a new website! We’ll be adding more features as they’re developed, including a way to browse our products. But in the meantime, we’d love to get your feedback on what we have so far!


We’re also a proud member of the Western Connecticut Yarn Council, a group of seven fantastic local yarn shops that have come together to provide knitters and crocheters throughout the region with the finest selection of fibers supported with expertise and creativity that years in the industry provides.
