Red Barn Yarn has always specialized in high quality bases, which are all hand painted.
You may shop online, or you may visit the studio with just a phone call or text if you are in the Palm Springs, CA area. The best number is the cell phone, 626-221-8817.
We offer tonal solids and coordinating hand-painted variegated choices. We do most all the variegated choices also as a gradient, and on of-a-kind paintings on yarn that we call “Uniquities”! Those are the skeins that we just love to create and are just too fun for that perfect garment idea.
With a life-long passion and love of all things fashion, fiber, textile and color, Catherine launched the business with 24 colors, and the first stockist in Claremont, California in 2008. Still enthralled with the process and the joy of creating new and beautiful yarn, Catherine now opens her studio daily, and hosts, “ What’s on your Needles”, sit and knit on Thursday afternoons.
The colors produced, and the names selected are inspired by nature and the world around us. Some names will make you chuckle, others may help you dream; they will definitely encourage you to create.
Please enjoy your visit to our site and our Studio should your travels bring you to Palm Springs, California.
