About Griffin Yarns

Griffin Yarns is the product of two sisters — one who knits, and one who travels. The traveller went to Germany one summer and, at the request of the knitter, bought and brought back a suitcase full of German yarn. For her end of the bargain, the knitter made the traveller several things out of the yarn she chose. Both were amazed at the variety, quality, and low price of the yarn available in Germany, and frustrated that the yarn wasn’t available in the United States. Together, they decided to do something about it. That something is Griffin Yarns. We search for yarns that are unavailable or hard to find in America (and Canada), and bring them over to share with other knitters. If you have any special requests, contact us at [email protected] and we’ll see if we can track them down.
