Our Story

Fiber Arts Yarn Shop is located within the small cluster of shops in Cape May, known as the Washington Commons.  We are a well-established knitting shop stocked floor to ceiling with exotic, organic, and natural yarns from around the world! Founded in 1986, Fiber Arts Yarn Shop recently celebrated 33 years of providing quality yarn and knitting accessories to the Cape May County community and beyond.

Owner Jana Lynne started Fiber Arts Yarn Shop at the age of 31 when her children were just 2, 4 and 6 years old. A stay-at-home mother, Jana needed to find something she could do while staying home with her young children. She resorted to knitting, a hobby that became so much more.

The business only grew from there, and eventually landed Jana in the beautiful space Fiber Arts Yarn Shop occupied in Cape May for many years.

Now, after 33 years, we closed our Cape May Yarn Shop in February 2020, and now concentrate on our first fiber addiction: Knitting Machines!
