Do you knit or crochet? Slowfiber carries Hoooked yarn!

This yarn is great for making baby items, cowls, bags, stuffed toys, and soft goods. It's super soft, super cost effective, and machine washable.

Hooked yarn is available in-store at Slowfiber in a wide variety of colors. To find out which types of yarn and colors are here, please visit us at 517B Hartnell Street in Downtown Old Monterey or phone us at 831-901-3168.
