Distributor of Fine European Yarns and Patterns

Aurora Yarns is a wholesale yarn and button distribution company and pattern publisher, located in beautiful Moss Beach, California. We are dedicated to bringing high-quality yarns in a wide range of colors, styles, fibers, and price points to the American knitting and crochet world. We supply independent yarn shops and mail order retailers -- we do not sell directly to the public. Please visit our retailers page to find out how to purchase our products.

We currently import one European yarn line, Steinbach Wolle from Austria, offering a complete line of yarns for both knitting and crocheting, including an extensive selection of crochet cotton.

We also distribute Ogier Yarns, a very special line of exquisite hand-painted yarns.

Our button line is varied and eclectic. Our button buyer goes strictly by her "gut reaction" to the buttons she views, and for the most part, she gets it right.

And then there are our swifts! The Nifty Swift™ is a fabulous table-top swift requiring no clamping. We also have an umbrella swift that is more compact that the usual ones, but still handles the big skeins.

We currently publish two distinct pattern lines: Aurora Yarns patterns and Effectiveness by Design/Michele Wyman patterns. Aurora Yarns' signature line of patterns features designers ranging from superstars to budding newbies,and even a couple of Michele Wyman’s patterns. Michele's patterns are wonderful because they don't specify a specific brand or type of yarn; rather they are written for a specific gauge (for example, worsted 4.5 st/inch), which gives you a lot of flexibility in choosing yarns. Her patterns are unfussy, universal and extremely well-written with clear instructions.

If you would like to purchase any item on our website, please ask your local yarn shop, or look on our retailer list for a source. If you have any difficulty finding our products, please call (650-728-2730) or e-mail (info@aurorayarns.net) us and we'll be happy to help you.
