Crystal Palace Yarns is a family-owned, San Francisco Bay Area-based wholesaler of yarns and other needlecraft supplies. They design our own boutique yarns carefully with the artist and craftsperson in mind, with a strong emphasis on fiber and color. Color development for yarns is one of one of CPY's favorite parts of yarn creation. Depending on the yarn fiber content and method of spinning, various dye techniques can be used. The extensive range of color that CPY offers gives customers a wide variety of choice. Some colors are inspired by food like Berry Smoothie, Butternut, Pesto and Curry, while some take on names of local San Francisco, like Bodega Bay, Half Moon Bay, Napa Valley and Yosemite. CPY customers say they love the descriptive names, which reflect the character of the color itself.
