Backstory Books & Yarn is an urban spinnery, producing yarn from post-consumer sources, like your closet.
At Backstory we take sweaters and turn them back into yarn.
After cleaning, straightening and blending colors, what used to be waste has become beautiful yarn for knitting, crocheting, weaving and more.
Trade in your moth-eaten sweaters for books and yarn, and help them upcycle to another use. (Backstory prefers sweaters made of natural fibers - wool, cotton, silk, alpaca, angora, bamboo, soy, viscose.)
