Yarn Refuge is Reno’s premiere destination for unique yarn supplies, and a community atmosphere.

Learn. Share. Create.

 Yarn Refuge is Reno’s premiere destination for the arts and crafts community.
We exist for you! Our welcoming atmosphere is meant for you to explore what yarn has to offer by learning, collaboration, sharing, and shopping.

Current Hours:

Monday – Saturday 11am – 5pm

Sunday 11am – 3pm

Thursday Knit Night 5pm – 7pm

We are redoubling our efforts to maintain a clean and safe environment so we may continue to stay open and serve you through the holiday season.

To that end we now have a high efficiency HEPA air filter in the shop and have postponed social/help time, substituting one on one help by appointment.

Please see the Classes page for more details.

We would also like to remind you that you can shop online or over the phone for pickup. And as always, contactless pickup is still available.

About Us

Whether you’re looking for supplies, a warm atmosphere to hang out and knit with friends, or want to take a class — we’re here for you.


We offer a wide range of classes and workshops for any skill level, all offered in small-sized groups. You’ll learn about the yarns themselves, how to knit, crochet, and more.

Yarn & More

No matter what you’re looking for, we have it. From designer knitting bags to those creative and one-of-a-kind accessories, we have them at Yarn Refuge.
