CHICAGO YARN CRAWL JULY 20 - 28: LET'S CELEBRATE WITH YARN!

VACATION ๐Ÿ–๏ธ Aug 4 - 22

String Theory will be Closed
Sunday August 4 thru Thursday August 22

Every year String Theory takes a few weeks off in August to enjoy the summer before it's gone. Picture us knitting, napping, and dreaming up great things for you to make in the Fall.ย 

Since Yarn Crawl is early this year, we will actually be open the week after Yarn Crawl. We have some special things planned for that week, so we hope you'll drop by in person and online.

We are always open online and will be shipping packages every Monday (thanks, Emily!).

Thank you for understanding as we take our break. I swear this makes a better store the other 49 weeks of the year.

Your yarn makes a positive impact


By purchasing yarn from String Theory, youโ€™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.
