When Darcy Cameron founded Knit Purl in 2004, she wanted to create a unique curated experience for yarn buyers. Local, exclusive, and hard-to-find products became Knit Purl's wheelhouse, and eventually the store expanded to include both an online and brick-and-mortar presence.
Meanwhile, Darcy began her foray into pattern development and yarn sourcing, giving rise to Shibui, which eventually branched off into its own company.
Today, Knit Purl remains a source for exciting, modern, and one-of-a-kind knitting products, with its own exclusive yarns, patterns, and accessories. We have formed close, personal bonds with local, regional, national, and international makers, designers, and buyers who expose us to their constant creativity.
Our convenient downtown Portland location affords us the opportunity to connect with traveling knitters of all backgrounds and skill levels, and share their stories and experiences. We offer classes and workshops, and have an ongoing Knit Night every other Wednesday at 6 p.m. Check out our events!
