Welcome to Silver Threads and Golden Needles

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!
