About Us

Welcome to Knit Addiction, your site for amazing specialty yarn and fiber!

When we opened our store in Old Town Clovis in 2011, we brought together some of the fantastic artisan yarn we were finding at fiber festivals and knitting shows throughout California. Our idea was to gather the stuff  younger knitters wanted - to show people that knitting is cool and not just for your grandma anymore.  Now we've taken this fun collection online, so you can shop for Knit Addiction's yarn and fiber from the comfort of your home.

We specialize in small production, hard to find, and one-of-a-kind yarns and spinning fiber, with the younger knitter and spinner in mind.  We have three goals:

  • To connect unique and creative fiber artists with appreciative customers.
  • To market and sell local products from Central California.
  • To provide discerning knitters, spinners and felters with some of the best artisan yarns available.

Who are the folks behind Knit Addiction?  Micheline has been knitting since she was four years old.  She picked up spinning about ten years ago, and moved into dyeing her own yarn and fiber after that.  She loves to peruse fiber festivals and knitting shows to find new yarns and fantastic fibers.  Her daughter Samantha, has been knitting and spinning for almost as long.  Always in search of the next, best hipster beanie pattern, Samantha lends the young eye to Knit Addiction's collection.  Husband Ray doesn't knit or spin, but knows more about yarn and fiber than any other retired police officer we know.  He fixes and restores spinning wheels, and is a frequent contributor to the wheel forums on Ravelry.

Knit Addiction is our way to share our favorite yarn and fiber with you. Welcome to our world!
