Best Source for a Good Yarn

Miss Chickpea's Funky Fibers

Artist and Miss Chickpea's Funky Fibers owner Shelly Brauser -- aka Miss Chickpea -- has assembled a mouthwatering collection of fabulous yarns in this colorful Hudson knit shop, including so many beautiful shades and textures that even non-knitters will want to grab some needles and take a stab. While the soul of the collection is the unique, hand-dyed, hand-spun fibers, the shop also carries more commonplace yarns in an uncommon array of colors. Even terminally non-crafty shoppers needn't go home empty-handed: Brauser makes and sells a line of gorgeous felted purses that any woman would love to own.
