About us

Dartmouth Yarns began life in 2012 as a local yarn shop in the heart of Downtown Dartmouth, NS.  The shop is located at 122 Portland Street, a short walk up from the ferry landing at Alderney Landing. Although part of the Halifax Regional Municipality, Dartmouth is a charming community located across the harbour from downtown Halifax, connected by two ferries and two bridges.


Our mission is to help spread the art and joy of fibre arts, from knitting and crochet to spinning and weaving.  Our inventory focuses on a carefully curated mix of locally hand-dyed yarns from Fleece Artist, Handmaiden Fine Yarns, and Mineville Wool Project; a rich assortment of sock yarns from Opal, Cascade, Lang, and more; and a foundation of essential yarns for knitting and crochet.  We carry one of the best stocks of needles and needle set from ChiaoGoo.  We are an Ashford dealer and both stock and special order all Ashford spinning wheels, looms, fibres, and accessories.


While we love to see all our customers in the Dartmouth shop, we are thrilled to debut our new webstore.  We hope we are able to bring all the pleasure of a local yarn store to the convenience of online shopping.


Have any questions about products or the ordering process?  Please give us a call at the shop at 902-422-YARN or e-mail us at Info@DartmouthYarns.com anytime.  Visit our website or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Ravelry.

Thanks for your support and HAPPY KNITTING!
