To say that the folks at Mystic River Yarns love fiber is, indeed, an understatement.
Founded in 2001 by Hansina Wright, Mystic River Yarns original mission was to provide the community with
quality fibers and to encourage the ancient traditions of knit, crochet and weaving through classes, workshops and
Today, the original mission still holds true. The selections of yarn increased so that now Mystic River Yarns has
what might be considered to be the widest range of commercial and hand dyed fibers, accessories, and pattern books along
the South Eastern Connecticut/Rhode Island border shoreline.
The educational component has broadened to include year-round weekly workshops for knit and crochet, specialty classes
by instructors experienced in and dedicated to sharing their knowledge, skills and enthusiasm for the tradition. Since
2003, Designer Day has become an annual event featuring internationally known guest designers who both teach a specialty
class and spend the day with students and visitors alike.
