Who we are:

Forest Park neighbors! Dye Hard Yarns is a small boutique yarn shop and dye studio in the heart of the Oak Park Arts District on Harrison st. We are between Austin and Ridgeland.

We are the home of indie yarn-dyers, hand-dyers, artisans, makers and small family businesses near and far. 

What we are about:

Make Dye Hard Yarns your knitting home. Over the years we've come to realize, Fiber people are the best people! We love our knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers, dyers, and all fiber crafters in between. It's become our mission to help you achieve your project dreams, and to build a community centered around joy, and a shared love for the fiber arts. 

Learn to knit:

At our yarn shop you will learn, or re-learn, the basics of this wonderful fiber craft. We teach beginning, intermediate and advanced knitting classes to both children and adults. Beginners and newer knitters are ALWAYS welcome!

Yes, you CAN learn this. We take you from start to finish in creating your very first project, or refresh skills you learned as a child.

Join us for weekly beginning knitting classes and become a part of our community! Learn to cast on, knit, create the garter stitch knitting pattern, and bind off and weave in your ends. Beginning knitting classes include all supplies for the class.
