ABOUT OUR YARNS

Our collection is first and foremost, conscientiously-curated. On our (physical and virtual) shelves, you’ll find a wide selection of organic, fair trade and artisan yarns, each a delight for knitting and crochet.

By purchasing a yarn from String Theory, you’re lifting up a number of small and female-owned businesses. We help women in Rwanda, who survived the genocide, educate a new generation. We help women in Uruguay find meaningful work without leaving their rural homes. We help a family in New Hampshire maintain a mill, a tradition spanning hundreds of years. We help restore the Patagonia Grasslands by encouraging sustainable farming. Every yarn we stock makes a positive impact.

Our Team

We all love helping you pick the perfect yarn for the perfect project, however, in addition, we each have our special skills.
Thank you Gale Zucker for taking most of these pictures.
