COVID is on a steep rise now, including on San Juan Island. Therefore, I am closing the shop down to in-store shopping for the time being.

The online store remains OPEN! For local pickup, choose PICKUP at checkout. Do not use Paypal Express checkout if you wish to pickup your order.

Thank you for visiting our site! We pride ourselves on quality yarn and supplies and fast, reasonable shipping.

Island Wools is the local yarn shop in Friday Harbor, Washington on San Juan Island in the middle of Puget Sound! We are just a relaxing ferry ride away from the mainland.
