In addition to our regular yarn selections, RAVEN'S BEAK has a number of yarns that have either been discontinued or are no longer made. We call these "vintage yarns" and there are some real treasures available to you there.
Original designs: knitwear, wet and dry felt pieces and purses, beadwork and jewelry continue to be available to you: All as finished pieces and some as kits or patterns for the do-it yourselfer. If you like to make, wear and have things that cannot be found in the usual stores I think you’ll like this shop.
