New Business in Floyd Virginia – Woolly Jumper Yarns

There’s a new business in town called Woolly Jumper Yarns. The proprietors Jackie Crenshaw and Michele Morris launched the business after their knitting group, which meets every Thursday, out grew their location at the Country Store. Jackie explained that a dear friend, Cheryl Sweeney, who was part of the knitting group gave her the inspiration to open Woolly Jumper Yarns. Cheryl suggested a local place where Floydians could by yarns. Cheryl has since pass away.

You will find a wide variety of high quality yarns including yarns from Cascade, Brown Sheep, Rowan, Fame Trend, Debbie Bliss, Amy Butler, Be Sweet, Elsebeth Lavold, Araucania, Manos de Uraguay and Louisa Harding packed into our store. The assortment includes a fair number of organically produced, naturally colored and recycled yarns. Also, on the shelves you can find some unique local spun yarns. Jackie pulled out a yarn made of 65% wool and 35% metal from a box she just received.

The goal is to have fun and to pass along the craft to others. Bring your project every Thursday from 6-8pm and join in on Yarn Night! Floyd Virginia is rich with crafters and they showcase some work at the store.

The store is located at:
202 South Locust Street
Floyd, Virginia 24091
