A Passion for Knitting & Color
Great Adirondack Yarn Co Inc. began more than 30 years ago because of a passion for knitting and color, and now we are one of the most well-known yarn companies around.

We take pride in our quality fibers and exquisite colorways, from glowing, vibrant colors to deep, mysterious shades and soft monochromatic tones. Located on a small horse farm in upstate New York, we get our inspiration from the gardens, the land, and all the lovely creatures that share our little corner of the world.


Awards & Recognition: Featured  in Love of Knitting, Belle Armoire and Knit and Style magazines
