Knotty Wares Yarn & Fiber Art Co-Op is happy to be part of such a generous community. Since most of the yarn we use is donated, we keep our prices small so you can afford more. All our products are only $10 unless otherwise marked.

We are glad to know that all dollars given to Living Ministries and other local organizations will bless people and animals in Cowlitz County. Around Christmastime we go through our inventory and anything that has not sold will be donated to Canz 4 Toyz, Love Overwhelming, Caring Pregnancy Center of Cowlitz County or other organizations that we can think of.

20 Christmas Hats for Kids

20 Christmas Hats for Kids

This year we got a call from a group of people that include Affordable Cabinets, Granite and Floors who have taken it upon themselves to help fill the gap some kids fall into at Christmas time. I love living in such a generous area! I love that The Salvation Army and other organizations help families have a nice Christmas, but we know they can only supply what they have. There are lots of people, and not just in churches, that help local families, that give generously to make up the difference and this year we are glad to be able gift...

Hats for Love Overwhelming

Hats for Love Overwhelming

Keeping your head warm is vital to getting through the extreme weather season; especially if you don’t have a home. We are so thankful for the donations of yarn that we were able to use to make some really warm hats to donate to Love Overwhelming. We were able to create several wool hats. These hats take longer to make because we use a very small stitch in order to keep as much heat in as possible. Wool is important because it is water repellent and dries fast while being light weight. We donated the following 12 hats: Camo Slouchy...

A New Year’s Gift to Caring Pregnancy Center

My favorite way to start the new year is to find the perfect gift for a great service organization. Right off the bat, I was blessed with the perfect opportunity to bless Caring Pregnancy Center of Cowlitz County. On Friday January 10th, there was a wonderful benefit concert for Caring Pregnancy Center, hosted by The Electric Bean. So I raided my inventory and came up with a few treasures to share with an agency that changes lives every day with positive life-honoring help as expectant mothers get help with counseling, training and baby...
