Stars Hollow Yarns has got similar values on sustainability and sourcing of high quality fibres as RiverKnits. No wonder we have started working together.
You’ll find natural fibers with interesting stories…ranging from American-grown Merino, Targhee/Columbia, and Jacob sheep from local farms in Connecticut, New York, and Virginia…to fair trade Cashgora, spun by rural women in remote areas of Tajikistan and Afghanistan, which helps them become financially independent. We bring you products that are created in a socially and environmentally responsible way, particularly when it empowers women and helps us understand each other a little better.
Stars Hollow Yarns is a space to share our passion for natural fibers, sustainable and thoughtfully sourced supplies, and gifts for all generations of modern crafting enthusiasts. Nestled in the same quaint area of Connecticut that inspired Amy Sherman-Palladino to create the show, our primary focus is to create a strong sense of community, both in the store and online. Our classes are geared toward providing a fun atmosphere for makers at all skill levels, where they can expand their knowledge base and learn more about the health benefits of handcrafting while sharing a few laughs. We want to help the environment, so we use an energy provider that supplies our shop with electricity generated from 100% renewable energy sources, like wind, solar, hydro, and biomass.
