WE THINK WOOLYN IS FRIGGIN’ AWESOME
And we hope you will too

Woolyn is all about providing an outstanding environment of creativity, education and fun for yarn and fiber crafters from Brooklyn and beyond! We are committed to supporting local and indie yarn companies and designers. We believe that by building a relationship with smaller and local companies we’re able to make a difference in people’s lives while helping to create a larger crafting community. Connecting to the maker through a beautiful and inspired product is just the icing on the cake. Or should we say the pompom on the hat?

Expand the boundaries of your fiber crafting skills and knowledge at Woolyn – we believe that there is always something new to learn, and it is what keeps us excited about knitting, crocheting, spinning and all the rest of the fiber arts we love. We want our customers to feel as excited about the possibility of what they could do as what they already know how to do.

Come in to squish the carefully curated selection of yarn and spinning fiber – we’ll be delighted to help you choose the perfect color and fiber for your project. Sign up for a class or workshop to take your yarn crafting to the next level – our experts are here to help. Or even just stop by to enjoy a mug of (local, natch) coffee or tea as you work on your project and hang with your fiber loving Brooklyn community.

OUR FRIGGIN’ AWESOME PEOPLE

Rachel Maurer

Owner & Chief Enabler

Despite learning to knit and crochet at a young age from her mother and grandmother, it was a circuitous route that brought Rachel Maurer to open Woolyn.

While pursuing a degree in Fashion Design in the 1990s in San Francisco, what was to become an obsession with fiber arts was kindled. Coming from a background where “form follows function” and an “artist needs to really understand their materials to make good art” were practically family mantras, Rachel strove to learn everything she could about yarn and fiber, and now shares that knowledge with you.
