The Tangled Skein Yarn Shop

Today a friend and I ventured out of Anchorage to Eagle River and visited The Tangled Skein. It was a wonderful little spot just off the main road in town. I was happy to see upon entering that there was quite a great selection of yarns, as well as books and magazines. I had never visited this shop before and was quite eager to get to "know" the yarns carried there. I love having a good knowledge of yarn lines and prices so that when projects come up so that I can pick which LYS (Local Yarn Shop) fits best. I was pleasantly surprised at the good prices and have several yarns that are now on my list! I think what stuck out most was that TTS carried quite a nice variety of fibers in their yarns. My fave of the day was a llama and silk blend yarn that I hope to find a project for soon!

I did end up going home with some DPN and two amazing grab bags of partial skeins (some I am pretty sure were full skeins) for $5 each!!! I am going to rewind the skeins and mark the yardage and think that they will make some amazing hats etc.


  1. I visited The Tangled Skein last summer and didn't walk out empty handed either! I live in WA now and was visiting my son & family in ER last May. Found TTS in the yellow pages and am so happy to have a LYS in ER...less than 10 minutes away!
    Since I am not a spinner, I am going to have to purchase some of your roving and attempt a hat :)

  2. Analytical Thinker: Piggybacking on the last skill,
    it's imperative that Matt Cutts specialists possess critical thinking and analytical skills. The online shopping has made the future insecure for matt cutts experts. One of the reasons guest blogging has grown in popularity. Your website can appear on the site, so that it can help click-through rates.
