    Veteran ran yarn companies

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of any yarn companies or dyers that are owned by veterans or veterans spouses. My husband and I love supporting veteran ran companies, or thin blue line based companies. Thank you!!

    I found this website, but didn't see anything about yarn companies or dyers: https://www.veteranownedbusiness.com/

        I don't know about yarn, but I can highly recommend R. Riveter bags. I have one of their canvas and leather handbags, but I really want to buy one of their totes to use as a project tote/travel bag. https://www.rriveter.com/pages/ourstory

        They are handmade in the USA. The quality is very good. The company was started by a couple of military wives and has a pretty cool story. https://www.rriveter.com/pages/ourstory

          knitterlady13 I'd never heard of them & their items are gorgeous. I am such a sucker for leather. Sigh.

        Humble Acres Yarn is veteran owned. I have just begun following them and am enamored by their beautiful colorways!!!!
        Largest selection of hand dyed yarn, hand spun yarns and small batch mill yarns. Custom orders welcome. Veteran owned business.

          Fantastic! Checking out their website now. I have had them on my bookmarks list for a long time, but I didn't realize they are veteran owned.

        My father, grandfather, uncle, brother in law, and father in law are all Navy veterans. My brother is an Army veteran and my son is a Marine! This is my shop, https://baroqoo.com/shop/AcornWillows I've edited because I have moved my shop to baroqoo!

        plainjaneknitter I'm also a sucker for leather. Their leather is beautiful, too! In fact, visiting the site reminded me that I should clean up my bag a bit.
