About Rita Mae Yarns
As we move into thinking about fall, we are renewing our commitment to audition yarns that are not typically available at local yarn shops as we partner with other indy dyers and manufacturers to bring you a selection of fine yarns.
Currently we are offering a variety colorways and variegated kits from Rita Mae's summer collection in 75% superwash Merino/25% nylon blend with generous yardage at 425 yds/100g. With the soft hand of merino and the strength of nylon, Merino Sock is equally suited for shawls, socks or lighter weight sweaters. Stop by to check out our shop samples for ideas.
We love the exquisite beauty and delicate care with which each skein is dyed by hand, and delight in the unique, one-of-a-kind-ness each skein lends to our knitwear.
New partners coming soon: Ewe Ewe Yarns and Kelbourne Woolens.

The inspiration for Rita Mae Yarns....
My name is Cortni Robinson, Rita Mae Clasen was my great-grandmother. She passed away in 2014 due to stage 4 bladder cancer. My grandma Rita was a great part of my life and was an amazing fiber artist. She inspired me to learn more about the needle arts and ever since that time, I have fallen in love with the craft. I named my business after her to honor her memory and remember she stemmed my love for the fiber arts.
We thank you so much for your business and support, and look forward to serving you and our community for years to come!
