Anniversary Sale!

On August 7th, HYS will have been open for two full years. In celebration, we’ll be holding our 2nd annual Anniversary Sale, from August 1 through 9. All in-stock regularly-priced yarn (excludes Spinnakees Farm) will be 20% off. It’s a great time to get that yarn you’ve been drooling over or to pick up some yarn for holiday gift-giving projects.
