Yarn lovers untie!!

Send 1 person 1 (or 2) skeins of a natural fiber (wool, alpaca, silk, cotton, etc.) from your personal stash that you would enjoy receiving. For example I have a number of sock yarns and some 100% Peruvian wool from Knit Picks that qualify.

Guidelines: Quantity - minimum 250 yds (sock yarn - minimum 375 yds, enough for a pair)

Value - Purchase price between $5 and $15 new and feel free to bless your partner with more if you wish!!


Preference is for 100% natural fiber. Acrylic blends allowed if less than 30% of the total content.

Type from craft store allowed - Yes, if good quality. Yarns should be pleasant to touch, have a nice drape, be fun to use and clean.


Unrated swappers allowed with fully completed profiles.

Sending group swaps no later than the send-by date is considered a swap requirement. In the rare circumstance that you must send late, please contact your partner AND the swap host no later than the send date.

Thank you for your consideration and happy swapping!

What happens if someone wants to join but is allergic to animal blends?

I'm not allergic but I do have a ton of acrylic that could use a good home.

What blends are you specifically allergic to? Most people who have allergies to wool for example can use Llama or Alpaca with no conflict.

I would be happy to set up a private swap with you for acrylic. What I am trying to avoid is a mass exchange of yarns the quality like the traditional Red Heart that my mother used in the 70's. It was fine when it was the only choice but now we have so many more options!! Some of the newer acrylic's are lovely and I've recently been through my own stash and may set up an acrylic swap in the future.

I have modified the swap requirements slightly.

btw-Goodwill accepts the old acrylic yarns in their donations. I know the group I knit with can hardly give it away to each other (most people who have experienced the new fibers!!) :)
