Welcome to Elk market yarn.
The home of yarns and supplies for the conscious crafter, from brands like La Bien Aimée, The Fibre Co, The Birlinn Yarn Company, Joji&Co, and many more.
Elk market yarn opened in January 2020 and is run from a small wooden cottage in the forest of southern Sweden, 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 physical shop is in a small, wooden cottage from the early 20th century, and open up around one weekend a month. It's rather remote, as the best things in the forest often are, and can't be found using digital maps. Instead, follow the good old written directions found HERE.
