Oakland Shop


Welcome! Our shop offers yarn and fabric in every color imaginable. We invite you to come by and touch and see all of the colors and textures in person. Our shop is open, spacious, and filled with natural light.

Kristine, the owner, is bi-craftual. She loves everything from creating her own yarn through spinning to sewing her own clothing. The shop reflects this love, and is divided into three sections: yarn, fabric, and fiber. Here, you have the possibility to choose your fabrics for a sweet, cotton shirt, and your yarn, for the accompanying cardigan.

We carry raw materials considered the best in the industry and have an especially warm feeling towards materials made in the US from US raised wool and cotton.

At A Verb for Keeping Warm, we have our own natural dyeing studio and educational dye garden. This is where we produce our own line of naturally dyed yarn and fabric. You can identify this product line by looking for the Verb logo.
