String Yarns is a full-service experience. From the moment you walk through our doors, you’re treated to a sensual delight. Windows run the length of the store, inviting natural light to bathe our vast selection of luxury yarns and fibers and ensuring you pick just the right hue for your particular tone. Our staff is knowledgeable and curious, well versed in the latest techniques and patterns to act as the perfect guides toward your next WIP. We help with custom fit and finishing and conduct classes like Lisa Hoffman’s Directed Knitting, which encourages individuals to bring whatever unique project has currently tripped them up for a helpful session at our communal table. Lisa also helps knitters choose their next project, as well as a suitable yarn.

If you’re in New York—whether you live here or elsewhere—we love to see you. Our store is our home, but we’d like it to be yours, too. Your home away from home, stocked with as much yarn as you hopefully have stashed back at the place you rest your head.

If you’re not in New York, we still want you to feel a part of the String Yarns experience. That’s why we launched String@ last year, a program that brings our signature luxury fibers and fashion-forward garments to your LYS. The String@ collection is currently available at 13 yarn boutiques across the country, including String Yarns.

We’re so excited to announce that String@ now has a new spring collection, refreshed with chic designs and gorgeous warm weather fibers. The Spotlight Collection features 10 new seasonal styles and 2 new yarns for spring, as well as additional colors in existing yarns Blossom, Breeze, Cashseta, Classica, and Windsong.

 

The Yarns

Angel is a DK-weight, 100% silk with a smooth luster and a soft hand. Silk is wonderful for spring knits. It’s lightweight but strong, offering drape, breathability, and next-to-skin softness. Angel is offered in nine chic, subdued colorways that feel modern and yet timeless—garments knit in Angel will never go out of style. 

Bonsai blends cotton and linen in a tape yarn and features the same elegant colors as Angel. A bulky yarn, Bonsai’s blend of cotton and linen, and especially its tape construction, will lend itself to breathable fabrics and sharp stitchwork with just a touch of drape.

 

The Garments

The spring String@ collection features garments in newcomers Angel and Bonsai as well as String favorites Blossom, Breeze, Cashseta, Classica, and Windsong. The palette is perfectly harmonized, showcasing a universally appealing and flattering wardrobe template. These are garments you’ll find yourself reaching for season after season and layering in the fall and winter. You can see the entire collection on the String Yarns website here.

This Sunday, String will be releasing a weekly #StringSpecial garment featuring Angel. As with all our String Specials, this surprise garment will be 15% OFF for one week only—you won’t want to miss it. Make sure you’re subscribed to our newsletter and keep an eye out on Sunday! Sneak peek the texture of the surprise garment below…
