  4. Top Quality Yarn Available Here

    Posted by Jane on 1st Apr 2018

    I have been working on needlepoint covers for the seats of my dining room suite for many years. I am now working on the last one which I had left unfinished a number of years ago. I searched my house over for the remainder of my thread and was so worried that I would never be able to match the color. Yarn Barn had a great color brochure with color numbers and pictures. I finally was able to match the color I needed and now I am able to finish this lifelong project. Thanks y’ all.

  5. Paternayan Lives On

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Nov 2017

    I have used this wool for almost 40 yrs for my needlepoint and there is none better. Believe it or not, I was unable to find it n the Bay Area Where I live. The sale of company I suspect is the reason but people must know that it will continue being made and the wonderful Yarn Barn has it.
