Vortex Yarns

The best locally-produced yarns and fiber in northern New Mexico!

Welcome to Vortexyarns, now online!

The place for extraordinary hand dyed yarns and fibers, as well as hand spun yarns, multi textured yarns, and inspiration.  As of May 2020, the actual brick and mortar shop in Taos, NM closed, and transformed into the online shop. Our in-house Vortexyarns and rovings are dyed by owner Merce Mitchell, who also spins unique novelty yarns, blends luscious spinning batts, and creates fun and exciting knitting kits with patterns and her yarns.

Inspired by the nature of the Upper Rio Grande region, color and texture are our inspirations to share with you on your own creative journey.
