Darn Good Yarn

“Yarn is more than just thread or fibers, yarn is a story.”


Company Description

Darn Good Yarn produces colorful, handmade yarn from repurposed materials. The company also sells project kits, home goods, and clothing.

The company’s uses offcuts and discards from garment factories – all material that would normally end up in a landfill – to produce its goods, resulting in yarns made from sari silk, banana fibers, hemp, and newspaper. Darn Good Yarn employs women in India and Nepal and allows them to work from home while earning a living wage.

In the company’s words, “These yarns give back in a big way, and we think that is darn good.”
