Whether you are making your first forays or bold advances in knitting or crochet, welcome! Bring your queries, your plans, your knitting dreams and crochet quests. We’re glad you’ve come.

Claddagh carries gorgeous, well-made yarns, and specializes in natural fibers. We love to showcase independent dyers. We stock yarns that, sheep to skein, were made in Oregon, and several of our yarns are dyed by artisans in Colorado, Canada, and right here in northern California. Other beauties come to us from further afield. By design, yarn from women-owned and -operated companies feature prominently on Claddagh’s shelves.

Claddagh was a fishing village in the west of Ireland that’s now part of Galway City. There’s a knitting tradition in this part of the world—sweaters, shawls, and socks to ward off the cold and wet—but what Claddagh is best known for is the Claddagh ring—the crowned heart in hands that symbolizes love and friendship, and which is passed down from mother to daughter, or mother to granddaughter.

Amanda Fernández, owner of Claddagh Yarns, learned to knit as a child, from her mother.

Claddagh Yarns opened in north Berkeley in September 2013.
