Welcome to Castaway Yarns

We are a yarn shop located in the Mid-West with a feel of being located near the coast. The owner, Vickie Spain, grew up on the East Coast and because her heart never left the coast, she chose this setting for the shop.


At Castaway Yarns we offer quality, beautiful yarns and tools. Our mission is to help our customers create garments, accessories, and items for the home that they will be excited about. We seek to provide a stimulating, yet relaxing yarn shopping experience, while also offering a comfortable and safe atmosphere for those who enjoy knitting and crocheting together.​
