This week's newsletter happened to fall on July 4th, inspiring me to tiptoe through the KR archives and pluck 15 particularly noteworthy yarns, tools, and accessories that have been manufactured here in the United States.

It's just the beginning of the list, though - I'd love to know what your favorites are!

Here's the review.

And you missed my favourite needles of all time, DyakCraft. I know you didn't give them a full review a couple of years back, but to me they are the Cadillac of needles, and worth the wait.

Fantastic topic, Clara. I try to buy American, and shop local, small businesses whenever possible. I haven't tried many of the yarns on this list; I'll have to aim for them! Verb for Keeping Warm is right over the bridge--although I'll have to wait for the Bart strike to end to go and visit. :(

Just learned that Kollage needles (the square ones) are now made in Alabama. The Yarn Barn of Kansas wrote this up in a recent mailer. They are returning production to the US for "better quality control,"
hurrah!

Very interesting. Looking forward to trying some of these "local" yarns.

I love Imperial Yarn from Maupin, Oregon. Although i believe it is spun in Canada, their Columbia flock is from the longest operating stock ranch in Oregon. With a name like Columbia, it is definitely a native.

Great article, Clara, lots of new yarns to check out! And I've always been a big fan of Sheila and Michael's needles!
