Stranded by the SeaStranded by the SeaContact: Tara Roberts
Stranded by the Sea is a Local Yarn Store located in the Edmonds Waterfront district offering natural yarn and supplies for knitting, crochet, spinning, felting, and other fiber arts, emphasizing sustainable and artisan quality materials, social knitting and spinning, and education.
We work to source our products from local makers and artists, small-indie crafters, and companies that create fine quality products from natural materials.
We believe in promoting natural fibers and wool, and avoiding synthetic, acrylic, and chemically-treated fibers, both for ecological and artisan purposes. We strive to educate consumers about preserving and protecting the waterways and marine life from synthetic fibers and their manufacture, both globally and here in the Puget Sound and Salish Sea, and about the many benefits of natural wool – doing our part to preserve the oceans.
Our classes, workshops, and social activities include knitting, crochet, spinning, and felting from beginner to more advanced skills, from kids to adults. Spinning, knitting, and crochet should be a lifelong pleasure.
We have our own line of custom made stitch markers, sock blockers, gauges, and other tools. We have recently added our own line of hand-dyed yarns and spinning fibers, including Angora fiber from our own “fluffle” of English Angora rabbits. We usually have at least one of our bunny mascots visiting in the shop – Feel free to stop by for a snuggle!
We are located in the Edmonds Waterfront district near the Edmonds/Kingston Ferry holding lanes, right next to Spuds Fish ‘n Chips.
