Nomad Yarns is a little store on the West side of Indy run by young and sometimes trendy husband and wife team Dave and Erica. We love originality, so expect to find small and hard to find companies, local products and our own line of Nomad Original patterns and kits. Come by to browse our products housed in antique shelves or sit and knit a while in the sunlit rooms of this old  Victorian home.

Nomad Yarns are stockists of major yarn brands, knitting and crochet tools plus Ashford spinning wheels and fiber.
