Welcome to Northfield Yarn!

Northfield Yarn is an independently owned yarn shop located in historic downtown Northfield, Minnesota. We carry a broad range of yarns, in a kaleidoscope of colors, along with a good selection of tools, notions, and patterns. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, planning a starter project or an heirloom sweater, you’ll find what you need at Northfield Yarn.

While yarn is our primary product, we also feel strongly about something less tangible: the community that forms when people share an interest in needlecraft.

Northfield Yarn is always looking for opportunities to bring people together, so we offer classes, knit-alongs, community stitch nights, and anything else we can think up. (For more information about these events, click on the “Events” tab at the top of this page.)

We also believe in just plain hanging out. There is no purchase necessary to enjoy the shop’s comfortable seating and natural light. To find out what brands we carry, you can scroll down to read the list at the bottom of this page. Or, better yet, plan a visit to Northfield and come see our products in person. Just don’t forget your knitting, because you might want to stay awhile.
