Welcome to Elk market yarn.

The home of yarns and supplies for the conscious crafter, from brands like Garthenor Organic, Spincycle yarns, La Bien Aimée, The Fibre Co, The Birlinn Yarn Company, Wooldreamers, Retrosaria Rosa Pomar, Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk and more.

Elk market yarn opened in January 2020 and is run from an old water mill in Ingelstad, in the south-east of Sweden. Founded by knitwear designer Lotta H Löthgren.

With fast, world wide delivery and a hand picked selection of exciting yarns and high quality accessories, Elk market yarn is first and foremost a web shop, available no matter where you might be located.

The brick&mortar shop is located in an old mill in the centre of Ingelstad, a small village 15 km south of Växjö in south-eastern Sweden. We're open every first and last Sunday of the month, and have regular knit nights too! Keep an eye on our social media for updates.
