Uncommon Threads is an independently-owned local yarn shop nestled along Eastern Boulevard in York, Pennsylvania.

New and experienced yarn enthusiasts will find tools of the trade and a wide variety of fibers from popular brands like Cascade and Debbie Bliss to indie yarns from local dyers and spinners. Samples of finished goods and an assortment of classes ensure you’ll never run out of inspiration.

A true community space, knitters and crocheters are welcome to bring their WIPs (works in progress) and settle in around our table, joining friends old and new. Share pattern ideas, seek or share tips on techniques, or simply engage in friendly conversation. Or savor the warmth of the shop from a comfy chair, sipping a cup of hot tea, taking time to do something for you. Either way, we hope to see you here!
