Local Yarn Store day was created by The National Needlearts Association to celebrate the brick-and-mortar yarn stores that so tirelessly support our yarn habits, teach new and interesting techniques, and continue to inspire our community with color, texture, and wonderful projects.

This year’s LYS day will take place on Saturday, April 27 and is designed to show support for small businesses while bringing together a unique community of knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners to drive awareness and celebrate the craft. We encourage you to visit your local LYS, thank them for supporting your community with a wonderful variety of yarns and classes.

Many yarn companies, designers, and shops are releasing new products, patterns, and even hosting special events on this day. Trendsetter Yarns has released an entirely new yarn for this year’s LYS Day, Merino Eclipse. This 100% merino wool yarn comes in a 200 gram pull-skein with a generous 550 yards. We recommend working this new DK weight on a size 6 U.S. needle.

We have released six exciting new colors in this yarn, click here to see all the colors, and seven wonderful patterns, which can all be seen here. Below you will find a list of stores that are carrying all six colors and patterns for this yarn. Please visit your LYS on this day to show your support, and if you can, make a purchase (big or small).
