Founded in 2008, Fillory Yarn began as Green Planet Yarn, changing in 2018 when Andrea Haws purchased the store. Fillory Yarn is Silicon Valley’s beloved resource for fiber lovers of every craft; knitters, crocheters, weavers, and spinners can all find exceptional and beautiful yarn and fiber for their every need.
What is Fillory?
Fillory is a world where people can explore their creativity and express themselves without judgement. It is a world of possibilities that was built for our community of makers. A place where support is always available and where you can find the best quality tools for your trade. Fillory is a world which brings people together and welcomes newcomers to our tribe. Fillory is you. It’s me. And it is those who are making a positive difference in the world and those who are changing lives within the fiber community. Welcome to the fearless world of Fillory.
Knitting changed my life, it helped my depression, my anxiety and my fears that I faced with in my personal life. I felt a sense of belonging, a sense of a circle of friends worldwide that could help me get through this. And it worked. Why not share this with everyone? I was devastated when my local yarn store closed, it felt like the end of my world. I thought if this is how I feel, others may feel the same way. I’ve vowed to myself to make a difference somehow, one day create something where people can come together again and share that sense of wonder and friendship and the love of knitting. I want to create that sense of belonging, community, safety, friendship, and the love we all share for fiber arts of every kind.
