Welcome to Silver Threads and Golden Needles

COVID-19 Update:
We are currently open 11am-3pm Monday-Saturday. We’re offering free shipping, curbside pickup, and local delivery, or if you need to come shop, give us a call to schedule an appointment – we’re limiting the number of people in the store at any given time. All classes and walk-in help are cancelled until further notice.

Stay safe everyone! Our number is 828-349-0515 – we’re happy to answer questions, take orders, and help however we can!

We are a friendly and fiber obsessed yarn shop located in the Historic Downtown shopping area of Franklin, North Carolina.  We have everything you need to launch yourself into a fiber frenzy! Whether you are a local or taking a vacation in the Smoky Mountains, we are your one stop destination for traditional fiber arts.

We carry a full stock of yarns ranging from local farms, individual hand-dyers and spinners to your classic favorites from around the world. Just a few of our fibers include: Angora, Alpaca, Bamboo, Buffalo, Cotton, Cashmere, Hemp, Llama, Linen, Mohair, Wool and Silk.

Classes are available year round. We teach Knitting, Crochet, Weaving, Spinning, Tatting, Dyeing and Needle Felting. Notions and books for these traditional arts are stocked at all times and if we don’t have it, we will do our best to get it for you.

Our staff is knowledgable and friendly so come by to feel the fibers, relax in our library with a cup of coffee or if you find yourself stuck with a mistake or pattern question, stop in for some help!
