Located in Clarksville, TN, we are pleased to be a sanctuary for the yarn addicted. Yarn Asylum stocks a wide variety of yarns, notions, needles, hooks, books and gifts for fiber enthusiasts. We also have classes and workshops geared for ALL levels of stitchers – beginner through advanced.
Drop by and see us soon!



Please note our new Winter Visiting Hours:

Effectively immediately, our normal daily hours are changing.
Yarn Asylum will be closing at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, & Saturday.
On Thursdays, we will remain open until 8:00 pm
for Group Therapy.
Sunday hours will remain 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm.
As usual, we are closed on Mondays.

If you need to visit Yarn Asylum and can’t make it by 5:00 –  please give me a call and, if possible, I will wait for you!

If you know me, you know how excited I am that my son, Brian, and his family are transferring back to Ft. Campbell in January.
I am thrilled to have my whole family and ALL my Grandest Kids back together again.I have been afforded a VERY exciting and special treat with this move.  I will be flying out to Arizona and then driving back to TN with them!

This will mean some changes in the visiting hours for the shop during that week.
Ed has graciously offered to run the Asylum while I am away.

Starting on Tuesday, January 10th through Friday, January 13th, Yarn Asylum will open at 12:30 pm.

Group Therapy will still be held on Thursday evening.

Wednesday morning Group Therapy will have to be changed.  If you would like to gather starting at 12:30 pm – that is fine!

The Weaver’s and Spinner’s Group meeting for Sunday, January 8th will be canceled.

Please come in and keep Ed company!
He will be an excellent substitute Asylum Director.

Come sit around our big table and join other fiber fanatics as you work on your current project or get inspired to start another. The talk is lively and the enthusiasm is motivating.  Drop in and meet new friends.  Bring in your problem projects and get advice from other knitters and crocheters.  Show off your finished designs and let us all envy your accomplishments!   Learn some new techniques as we share and enjoy the social aspect of our hobby!
The table at Yarn Asylum is always open for you to come in and enjoy some time to knit or crochet. Spend your lunch time getting in a few rows on that scarf or stop by on your way home from work to unwind for a bit.   Free WiFi is also available if you are experiencing a momentary Ravelry withdrawal.
