After knitting for more than 30 years, I decided that opening a yarn shop would be a fun venture, allowing me to share my love of fiber and knitting. I wanted to feature only nicer yarns and fibers – but at the best prices. Located in the village of Forbes Road, Pennsylvania, Raggz brings original, top-quality fiber and yarn to create beautiful things. As my shop is located next to my own home, my overhead is low and I am happy to pass the savings on to you.
I offer the best selection of natural fibers and handmade yarns in this area. I am not aware of ANY shops in the Pittsburgh area who carry locally made handspun yarns or the selection of fibers that I offer. This feature encourages you to think outside the box and let your imagination soar and supports talented textile artists. I am proud to be one of the few (if only) LYS who carries indie yarns, such as Youghiogheny Yarns, Meadowcroft Dyeworks, Panorama fiber arts gradients. My goal is to eliminate the bigger mills and feature small, obscure yarn dyers. I also strive to carry USA yarns and accessories.
My store has three spacious rooms routinely replenished with new items. In my over-sized kitchen, you will find a myriad of roving colors, batts, and silk hankies for needle and wet felters. My fiber vendors include frabjous fibers, Opulent fibers, Pagewood Farm, The Lavender Fleece, Panorama Fibers, Frabjous Fibers, as well as more local fiber artists.
Whether interested in taking a class or simply looking to find a new project, I invite everyone to stop in. You will find a relaxing atmosphere and there’s always a fresh pot of home-roasted organic coffee brewing. Yes my hours are limited, but only because i have a 70 acre farm with cattle, sheep, goats, chickens, and bees, so i must make time for them too. i am always happy to be open by appointment if you give me a call!
