Lion Brand Yarns

Lion Brand® Yarn Company is a fifth-generation, family-owned business, and our yarns have been on the market since 1878. We are passionate about helping people enjoy the pleasures of working with yarn. Lion Brand yarns are sold online, at craft chains, discount chains, and independent shops around the world.

We believe in giving back to the community of yarn crafters. We partner with Warm Up America! as well as other charities that accept donations of garments and afghans made with yarn. We support Hat Not Hate, an anti-bullying campaign that distributes donated handmade blue hats to schools across the country for students to wear, empowering them to stand up to bullying. We also support fiber artists whose work is on exhibit at museums and public spaces around the world.

Lion Brand’s spokesperson is Vanna White, America’s favorite crocheter. Through the sales of Vanna’s signature lines of yarn, Vanna and Lion Brand have donated over $2,000,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

For several generations, we have inspired and educated knitters and crocheters. Today, research shows that knitting and crocheting helps relieve stress through the soothing, repetitive motions of the craft and by helping people achieve through a creative outlet that produces tangible and useful products. We would love to hear from you about what working with yarn has meant to you.
