Northwest Wools is the place to come for holiday items. We make it easy for you to shop local while buying and creating great gifts! With the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your gift lists: both what you plan to give others, and those items you want to put on your own wish list!
We’ve got a large selection of beautiful ceramic yarn bowls and matching mugs from Master Potter Frank Philipps. Frank has been making pottery in the Bauhaus tradition for almost 40 years, combining function and beauty in every hand-made piece.
Frank Phillips Pottery is based in Ashland, Oregon. When you buy one of Frank’s bowls or mugs, you are not only purchasing a unique piece of art, you are also supporting an Oregon artist. Northwest Wools is proud to support Frank Philipps Pottery, and thrilled to be the exclusive Portland vendor of these one-of-a-kind yarn bowls.
Interchangeable knitting needle sets are high on many knitters’ wish lists, and we have sets in a number of varieties and price ranges. We also have crochet hook sets for the crochet enthusiast in your life. And for crafters of all stripes, we have a variety of needle and hook storage cases, books, project bags and yarn caddies — some hand-made by Northwest Wools Instructor Judy!
We have lots of popular yarn kits to choose from, or we can help you build your own. And if you’re looking for something unique, browse our selection of locally dyed and sourced yarns. These exquisite yarns are the type of luxury item we don’t always buy for ourselves, but covet every time we’re in the yarn store! That special skein is sure to make any fiber artist smile.
Tools that make crafting easier are always a hit. We have umbrella swifts and ball winders so you can wind your yarn skeins quickly and neatly. Or treat your favorite crafter to a Maker’s Keep. This handy magnetic bracelet gives you a place to stick your stitch markers, cable needles and other metallic items so they’re right there when you need them.
And what better gift is there for a fiber enthusiast than a trip to the yarn store? If you’d like to give the gift of an experience as well as something material, consider a Northwest Wools Gift Certificate. We can create one for you in any dollar amount you choose. The recipient is sure to enjoy browsing our colorful, fiber-filled shelves, dreaming up new projects.
It’s not too late to create a handmade gift for that special someone!
There’s still time to make one-of-a-kind gifts for your family, friends and loved ones. We have one of the largest yarn and fiber inventories in town, including a large selection of beautiful bulky and super bulky yarns, and fast, easy patterns, so you can finish your handmade gifts quickly. Check out our shop models for inspiration!
