art-of-colorDear Yarn and Fiber Lovers,

As the owner of Textiles a Mano, I welcome you. My mission is to provide everyone who loves great yarns with a very unique and high quality selection of products. I personally do all the coloring and will stand behind the Textiles A Mano yarns.

I am inspired by how color appears to me in nature. I use this inspiration to paint on the canvas that is yarn. The pictures that you see on this page reflect some of my inspiration. I take pictures of the colors I see in nature, and then recreate those colors in my yarn.

I have named my Textiles A Mano yarns based on the type of yarn and not based on the color. Most of the yarns are named after cities in the world that the yarn evoked in my mind; some are just whimsical. I do not name the colors because each batch is very small and is hand colored one skein at a time to create a once-in-a-lifetime effect. Please always buy enough for your entire project.

Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. Thanks!

Please read! A letter from Textiles A Mano owner, Laura Macagno-Shang:

Dear Yarn and Fiber Lovers:

First great news: I am "retiring"! I will close Textiles A Mano as of July 31, 2015.

Second great news: on August 1, 2015, Anna Hults will open Stick + String, her version of a yarn and fiber studio. The hours will remain the same, drop in knitting and spinning will be the same. Anna will continue the same great quality of products and service you have come to expect. Classes will begin in September.
The transition should be pretty seamless and I am sure she will bring a new and fresh approach. I look forward to seeing everyone here in the future.

If you do not wish to remain on the email mailing list, please let me know and I will delete your name. Otherwise, beginning in August, you will hear news from Anna.

I have had 6 wonderful years here, met many wonderful people, and it was very difficult to make this decision. However, the fact that the shop will still be here, has made it a perfect fit. In the spirit of appreciating the support I have received, starting Saturday, all commercially dyed yarns, books and patterns, and bulk roving will be on sale at 25% off retail.

We are also making room for new magazines so come by and check out the ones we are giving away!

Please remember our Spin-a-knit-a-thon to benefit American Cancer Society on July 17th. Come by and sign up!

I am not leaving Eugene and plan to be at the shop for drop in knitting and spinning and just hanging out. So I am not saying good bye. I will simply be here in a different role!

Thank you all so much for the support and I look forward to seeing you at Black Sheep Gathering, and at the shop.

Happy knitting and spinning!
