Made for Americans
Lion Brand Yarns pride themselves in making American made yarns. Lion Brand is out of New Jersey and family owned and operated. They are teamed with professionals and amazing individuals behind the scenes to bring forth yarns that American’s love.
Lion Brand Stores – 3 Locations
Lion Brand has three dedicated stores on the east coast of the USA. Check out the Lion Brand Outlet Store with a video to show you around. It’s impressive. It’s located at 140 Kero Road, Carlstadt, New Jersey. This location is on Diva Dan and I’s bucket list to visit. They offer free WIFI for crocheters and knitters to access the internet and a lounge to sit and relax. They have surprise specials in limited quantities.
Lion Brand Yarn Shop has a second location in New York at 1814 Central Avenue, Colonie New York. This store has a different look and feel. Same great yarns and details.
Lion Brand provides a relaxed environment with over 5,000 patterns on hand to inspire you further when experiencing their yarns. You are welcome to book your own yarn events for classes and etc within this store.
The Lion Brand Yarn Studio is apparently a location that yarnies should put on their list when visiting New York. Located at 34 West 15th Street, between 5th & 5th Avenues in New York.
They feature over 100 classes in kitting, crochet, weaving, machine-knitting and dyeing yarn. Of the three locations, they have more yarn all under this roof. They do special events such as movie nights, fashion shows and men’s night! Men’s night has me intriqued! I wonder what that is about! haha
Diva Dan and I have never been to New York City. This would be on my hit list as well.
If you cannot get to any of these locations, you don’t have to look much further than your local retailer. If they are not carrying the yarn you want, you can always visit Lion Brand online and shop to have it shipped to you.
