Our story

We believe crafting is good for the soul

Needle and Fred was created to fill a creative void. When repetitive strain injury (RSI) prevented Libby from knitting. A knitting obsession turned into a yarn dyeing one and Needle and Fred has been growing ever since.

Tealing My Heart Yarn

Beautiful, deep, vivid, saturated hues, sooo chunky and so soft. This yarn is as gorgeous as pictured and glad I got more than one.

I *am* loving all of this yarn just as much as you enjoyed dyeing it! Fantastic customer service with a personal touch.
A Favorite shop and seller.

Absolutely the most amazing skein of yarn I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with! The pictures don’t do the craftsmanship or colors justice, truly.

The item arrived much faster than I expected, and I am overjoyed with the quality and feel of it. Definitely some of the best customer/shop owner interaction I’ve had. Highly recommend!

Great contact by the seller. Arrived quickly and wrapped and tied in a ribbon – nice touch.
A beautiful DK with smooth colour transitions and great tones. Looking forward to working through this baby blanket.

Beautiful yarn. Colours are bright and give great stitch definition.
