About Us


Yarns To Dye For in Frankfort

Founded in January, 2010, Yarns To Dye For is a specialty yarn shop located at 19 Ash Street in historic downtown Frankfort, IL across from the Old Plank Trail & Breidert Green. We stock yarn from around the world and our expert staff of knitting & crochet instructors take part in all vendor meetings to ensure that we will always carry some of the best yarns you will find in Chicago’s South & Southwest Suburbs.

We’re not all just yarn though. We are proud to feature the three amigos , Tamara, Pat and Marilyn, our fabulous knitting & crocheting instructors. They lead several class series here at the shop teaching everything from the basics of knitting & crochet up through intermediate and advanced patterns as well as knitting & crocheting techniques. When not teaching, Tamara, Pat, as well as Marilyn, and Jean, are on hand to help you choose your next project and to answer any knitting & crochet related questions.

We carry a wide variety of notions to help you with your projects. We have a full range of knitting needles, crochet hooks, stitch counters, hand-made project bags and much, much more. If you don’t see it, please don’t hesitate to ask us. Chances are that Jean, the shop proprietor, can order what you need.


We hope you stop in soon and let us assist you with your knitting & crocheting needs!
