Yarn Loop Kits-
Yarn Loop provides knitting and crocheting enthusiasts project kits and products designed for your specialty and skill level. We offer pattern kits for garments, home goods, and other smaller projects like accessories & toys. Men, Women, Children, Infants and even the house pet have not been overlooked!
We carefully review and compile the best patterns available to create the Yarn Loop Kit. The Yarn Loop kit was designed to simplify your shopping experience by combining the pattern with the selected yarn, and certain needed accessories. We strive to make the shopping experience as streamlined as possible by keeping kits in stock for the patterns we offer.
Please rest assured that the yarns recommended are excellent choices. We take special care to notate any differences in fiber or thickness and the corresponding implications for the modifications. We carefully select colors that are complimentary and "go together". We also notate climate substitutes so that a Floridian is not roasting in llama or a New Yorker freezing in linen.
While many patterns specify exact yarns, it is common for the designer recommended yarn to be discontinued. At Yarn Loop, we believe that a great pattern should not die with the yarn. We strive to keep the most popular and well-loved patterns available in kits.
We take great pride in the virtual store, and we think it shows, especially in our photographs! We have spent many, many hours photographing all of our yarn under strict lighting controls to capture each dye lot in its true colors. When we get a new dye lot, we photograph it, too!
We also take photographs of color sets so that you can see how the colors play off of each other. Color theory is something that we take very seriously because we do not want to sell you something that looks awful in the finished garment. Nobody wants to spend hours and hours making something that turns out to be hideous.
The Yarn Loop provides the following support services for our customers.
We really love helping people! If you aren't sure what pattern or yarn to choose, please feel free to shoot over an email so that we can walk you through your purchase. We schedule appointments in store or over the phone to help you find your dream project.
Our little shop is located on the southern edge of McCamey, Texas, and has a rather unique and special history. The building that we occupy was originally built as a Christian church in the 1990's. A large cross is embedded in the brickwork on the face of the building, making us really easy to find! This is probably the only little shop in Texas that has "blessed" yarn.
We also have a resident Roadrunner who taps on our front door around noon most days. While he is just playing with his reflection, we like to think that he really wants to come into the shop.
At this time, we are open by appointment only. Please stay tuned because we will post our visiting hours soon!
A note from Rachel
I am a native Texan with a lifelong interest in using my hands and mind to design and create beautiful things. My mother has a PhD in Family & Consumer Science (also known as Home Economics) and started my interest in sewing and knitting at the age of 6. As a child, I would design & sew Barbie doll dresses, make cross stitch patterns, and complete finger knitted bracelets.
My grandmother and mother-in-law taught me the art of crochet more than 20 years ago. I greatly enjoy making crocheted plush animals for children. My son always requests one "snuggly" for his personal collection, so I always make at least two of every animal. I also like to crochet baby blankets, hats and cowls from some of the most beautiful patterns available.
My mother taught me to knit in 2014, and I quickly progressed to advanced knitting within 10 months, completing slipped stitch and fair-isle sweaters with ease. The sewing and design background helps to modify patterns for the perfect fit of any garment. I find the technical aspect of knitting and crocheting extremely rewarding and love the soothing repetitiveness of these crafts.
Last but not least, I found a wonderful knitting group to help guide my hands and focus into fiber. The women of my group are very responsive and encouraging and have helped me learn so much about the craft and the beautiful yarns available. It is wonderful to meet up with a group that can help decipher a pattern or help you learn a stitch, and I highly recommend that you try to find one in your area if possible.
