Get to know Yarn Hollow
1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE CHICAGO YARN CRAWL?
This is Yarn Hollow’s first year in the Chicago Yarn Crawl!
2. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS AND HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I have been open since November 2018. Yarn Hollow started off as a Kickstarter Campaign that really took off. The shop started off really small, inside an existing boutique. I wanted to be sure that it was something this area wanted. It quickly took off and Yarn Hollow expanded into the entire space.
3. WHAT MAKES YOUR SHOP UNIQUE?
Our shop specializes in Indie Dyed yarn. We do carry yarn from some big name retailers, but the majority of our inventory comes from small batch, small business dyers. All of our bags and lotions are also all hand made by several women-run small businesses.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF BEING AN LYS OWNER?
It is important to me that we build each other up! My favorite part about being an LYS owner is meeting new people and watching relationships bloom.
