Central Yarn Shop is an institution in Maine!
A multi-generation family business run by Rhona Vosmus, Central Yarn has been featured in numerous publications and known by countless knitters and yarn stashers for seven decades. Rhona stocks a curated selection of quality affordable yarns, tools and patterns, as well as the famous Central Yarn button wall. Particular strengths of this shop are special orders from countless yarn suppliers, help with knitting problems, small class sizes, and a refreshing old-fashioned no-fuss atmosphere carried over from before the knitting new wave.

Central Yarn is co-located with two other wonderful atelier textile businesses in one store location: The Drapery Trading Company (custom home textiles and upholstery) and Hard Boiled Designs (designer boiled wool garments).
