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.
