Welcome to Yarn Asylum

Located in Clarksville, TN, we are pleased to be a sanctuary for the yarn addicted. Yarn Asylum stocks a wide variety of yarns, notions, needles, hooks, books and gifts for fiber enthusiasts. We also have classes and workshops geared for ALL levels of stitchers – beginner through advanced.
Drop by and see us soon!

When we were packing our car to come home from vacation, a passerby said: "Ah, bittersweet moment, eh?" That word comes back to me as a perfect description of my current mood.

So, it is with lots of "bitter sweetness" that I announce that after 6 years, I am closing Yarn Asylum. Sad, but so excited!

It was always our mission to provide Clarksville with quality yarn at good prices, but more importantly, to provide knitters, crocheters, weavers & spinners a safe/fun place to come together. I think we have been successful in our mission.

I will miss most the table where we have gathered - either one on one or in large groups - and we shared, we learned, we laughed and sometimes we cried. Some of my most favorite memories have taken place at our table.

The time has come to move on. To pursue some wonderful and exciting opportunities. I have been given an amazing opportunity to return to school and complete my degree while pursuing my passion for writing. Who knows? Maybe I will finally get that blog up and running!

I want to travel, spend more time with family, read a good book, learn, and maybe even knit for myself.

We don't have a firm "Last Day" yet. Our lease expires in October, so it will be before that. Stay tuned for information on our GOOBS (Going Out Of Business Sale).

Most importantly, THANK YOU to our loyal customers for supporting Yarn Asylum. It means everything to me. Small businesses NEED you!

To answer the #1 asked question:
Our lease expires at the end of October. That is the latest we will be open. We will close as soon as the stock is depleted.

The deals are getting better at Yarn Asylum! We are continuing our Retirement Sale. We still have a great selection of yarn, notions, and needles. And, now, EVERYTHING is at least 50% off! Hurry in for best selection. ALL SALES FINAL.

Changes happen all the time in the yarn industry. New yarns and new colors are being added constantly. Other yarns and colors are being discontinued to make room for those new ones. In 2018, the yarn industry lost a large yarn company when the owner retired. Classic Elite closed their doors forever. 
During our recent inventory, we realized we still have quite a bit of the Classic Elite favorites in stock. We are going to give you the chance to have these yarns for the last time and at an unbeatable price. All remaining Classic Elite yarns will be marked down 50% until they are gone. This includes Liberty Wool, Firefly, Song, Villa, Gigi, and many more. We also have prepackaged kits with enough yarn to make sweaters, wraps, shawls, mittens and more. They also contain the book with the necessary pattern and many more patterns. These kits were already priced at a discount and they are now 50% off that discounted price. This is a HUGE bargain.
We want to clear out this space and bring in some of those new yarns just coming onto the market!
Sale prices are also valid for online sales. See what we have at
Shop early for best selection. All sales are final and these discounted prices cannot be combined with any other offer or coupon.
