Welcome to Wool & Company where we believe a local yarn shop should be so much more than just a place to purchase yarn & needles. We believe knitting & crochet can be enjoyed by everyone and welcome beginners, experts, kids and everyone in between. We embrace education, community, and customer service. We want our shop to feel more like going to a friend's house... A friend that has over 10,000 skeins of yarn!
