About Us

Mystic River Yarns 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 personal service.

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.
