Make your Holiday Gifts with Yarn Made in the USA

 I want to make my gifts this Holiday Season that are really

 "Made in the USA"

I have always enjoyed hand making Holiday Gifts and since I also design Knit and Crochet Patterns, I began a search for Yarns that are Made in the USA.

I am not affilated with any of these companies, I just wanted a list of yarns to purchase this year that are Made in the USA and so I can keep my money in AMERICA this Holiday Season.

Please think about making your Holidays a "Made in the USA" goal.  The more products we purchase that are really "Made in the USA" provide more jobs for all of us and keep your hard earned money in America.

Easy to Find Yarns that are budget friendly too:
