About

The Wool & Cotton Co. was founded in 2014 and is located in Historic Downtown Greendale, just minutes away from Milwaukee. We sell gorgeous supplies for knitting, crocheting, & spinning.  Our products include natural fiber yarns & rovings, with an emphasis on items from indie, fair trade, local, & US sources.  We teach classes for students of every level and believe that anyone can learn and benefit from the fiber arts. 

Our Stash

When you shop at The Wool & Cotton Co., you are being welcomed to select from our well curated stash.  Every item in the store has been hand chosen for a variety of reasons, whether it is a tried-and-true notion, a yarn made just minutes away from the shop, or something made by a small, eco-friendly company from across the globe. 

We are proud to sell yarns, spinning fiber, tools, and accessories from the following companies:
