We recently re-arranged our shop to open up more space for… wait for it… yes, even more yarns! You will be as excited as we are with these new yarn arrivals. Some that are already in stock are pictured above and sample patterns below.

A baker's dozen of new yarns have recently arrived, including Cotton Tape, Cumulus, Geshi, Iris, Kancha, Monokrom, Sarasota Chunky, Shanty, Silk Garden Sock, Sonata, Spring Meadow and several new Super Socke's! Come see the new arrivals - plenty of choices for any project, large or small! We will help you find the perfect yarns for your patterns and usage.


LYS Day 2019 at the Raging Wool

On Saturday, April 27th, fiber fans from across South Florida and many from out-of-state, celebrated National LYS (Local Yarn Shop) Day with us.

The shop was packed as we simultaneously taught classes, hosted a huge 20% off storewide sale, and provided snacks and refreshments to everyone. It was so much fun!

We were very happy to see that the LYS day also brought in a lot of new people, including many that were interested in learning more about the fiber arts while supporting their local yarn shop too.

If you were unable to join us for LYS day fear not! We are planning a summer party and we’ll make sure that you are invited!
