The Yarn Maven is a bright and friendly yarn shop in historic downtown Smyrna, Delaware.

We carry a variety of yarn to suit your needs, from wool and alpaca to organic cottons, linens, blends and even acrylics in an assortment of solids, hand-dyes and prints. We also offer a large supply of needles and hooks, and have classes for beginning and experienced knitters. We carry Churchmouse patterns and we are a Ravelry pattern sales shop.

We have a large table/seating area where knitters are welcome to sit and work on their projects any time the shop is open. Our official Knit Night is on Wednesdays from 4pm-8pm and Knit Saturday is every Saturday from 10am-3pm. The fun is free, and there is a bakery with great coffee right across the street.

Parking is free and plentiful!
