We're currently closed for vacation and will reopen on June 7.
Welcome to Little Skein in the Big Wool
We're a little San Francisco company with sentimental, handmade knitting kits and original fabrics and notions.
Our kits are inspired by children's literature and come with everything you need to remember your favorite stories and create fresh, modern projects with tools and materials from some of the most talented indie fiber artists. Our project bags for knitters are made from original fabrics and hand-crafted in San Francisco, and our notions are hand-chosen and handmade to add joy and inspiration to your knitting experience.
Shop news

Summer closure: We'll be closed between Friday, May 19 and Wednesday, June 7 for some family time. Everything in the shop will show as "sold out," but if there's something you'd like, please enter your email on the product page to get a notification as soon as we reopen (or restock). Thanks!

While the shop's shelves will be bare, my Instagram should be hopping, if you want to see lots of knitting and pretty scenery.

Sock School:  Please join us for the second annual summer Sock School! We'll kick off on Tuesday, June 20 with awesome school supplies, a set of brand new House Sock colorways, and guest yarns from Woolberry, Sweet Sparrow and Highland Handmades.
