About Us


"Always Something New"

Urban Yarns is a full service Local Yarn Store (LYS) with a brick-and-mortar location in Vancouver, BC and an online store that ships throughout North America. We carry a large selection and range of yarns, needles, notions, patterns, and books. Always Something Newis the Urban Yarns motto, which continually motivates us to provide our customers with fresh and innovative products and designs. The store was born out of a love and passion for yarns and the desire to inspire others of all ages and abilities to explore the endless possibilities of this craft. We believe our store is a visually exciting place to shop and we offer a plethora of colour, fibre, and weight choices, including exotic and traditional yarns in all price ranges. Our online store provides an extensive selection of products that is constantly being updated to make shopping at home an enjoyable experience.

We are proud of our knowledgeable staff who love to share their expertise and are also constantly energized by the creativity of our customers. Whether you are new to knitting and crocheting, or an experienced crafter, you will be delighted by their helpful service and attention to detail.

A variety of classes are offered in-store, from beginner and beyond beginner, to more advanced design and colour work options. For more information, see our classes link on our home page or feel free to call us at 604-228-1122.
