Gist Yarn opened in 2017 as a little yarn shop with a big idea: inspire a growing community of weavers with quality weaving yarn, fresh pattern designs, and a warm and welcoming spot to find your weaving home.
Since then, we’ve grown to a team of five women proud to contribute to a thriving textile industry by working with fiber farmers, spinning mills, dyehouses, weaving teachers, pattern designers, and brick and mortar yarn shops.
We offer a growing collection of patterns for rigid heddle and multi-shaft weavers. We also host the weekly Weave podcast, which brings together a community of weavers and makers, farmers and mill owners, dyers and loom manufacturers, to tell the stories of the threads that bind us together. We are proud that thousands of our patterns and podcast episodes are downloaded each week from people around the world.
Our community of customers has helped this small business thrive every step of the way - powering our growth with pre-orders, sharing your feedback, cheering us on, and weaving your magic into our yarn. We wouldn’t be here without you, and we are grateful for your support.
