And does anyone know if the Yarnbow is still around? Personally, I haven't been out there in a long time,....but it may be another option.

Yarnbow has a nice selection, particularly of Noro, Lorna's Laces and Debbie Bliss, but it's an extremely good idea to call ahead before making the trip out to Lakeway. I know quite a few folks (including myself) who have gone out during regular business hours only to find the shop closed.

I believe that Fire Ant Ranch is in the process of moving up to Georgetown - pretty acessable for us north-siders.

If you want to take a nice drive south of Austin, Old Oaks Fiber Ranch in Wimberley has a good selection, too ..... you can even buy yarn off the cone by the ounce .... plus they offer weaving classes and looms of all kinds.

Hi all! Just opened Yarnorama, a yarn/fiber shop in Paige, just 45 miles east of Austin right off Hwy 290. Check our website for news and directions - We've got lots of yarns, fibers and spinning/weaving tools, with more coming in every day. Have a really nice selection of the wonderful locally produced fibers and handpainted yarns. Lots of classes are coming in March, including beginning spinning, rigid heddle weaving for knitters and handpainting sock yarns.

Look forward to seeing you all, and hope you will come our way on your next yarn crawl. (We would be a lovely early morning or mid-day stop, as we will have a cafe with great Ruta Maya coffee, fresh bakery and sandwiches.
