Your Local Yarn Shop

Located in the center of the charming borough of Emmaus, PA, since 2009, a straight 2 miles off the Lehigh Street (Exit 57) of Interstate 78, Conversational Threads is a yarn and fiber shop unlike any other. Our cozy home-like shop is filled with your favorite basics such as Cascade 220 as well as an abundant supply of gorgeous yarns from independent dyers such as The Neighborhood Fiber Co., Mrs. Crosby Plays and Hedgehog Fibres, just to name a few.

All of our over 100 premier brands of the finest all-natural yarns have been carefully selected to be of the highest quality and are offered at excellent prices.  Let the members of our friendly and knowledgeable staff help you to choose your next project, whether you are a beginner or a bit more advanced, and know that they are happy to provide you with assistance in finding yarn substitutions or navigating through the maze that is Ravelry. If, however, you wish to browse undisturbed, you can be assured that you will feel free to do so.
