Welcome to Prism Yarns!
Since 1984 we have endeavored to bring the ultimate knitting experience to discerning knitters. We want you to love every stitch that you make, and we strive to deliver the level of quality, ingenuity and delightful surprises that will keep you knitting.
Creative Director and founder Laura Militzer Bryant trained as a fine artist in color and textiles and is a life-long knitter. She brings her passion to creating two seasons yearly of new yarns, colors and design patterns for knitters' enjoyment.
These pages contain the most complete information we have for Prism Yarns. While we can't guarantee that colors will look the same on every monitor, Laura takes every photo herself and then color-corrects on a calibrated monitor for the truest representation. Althought not every yarn is shown in every color, most yarns are available in our full range.
Check the What's New section frequently, as we feature new patterns and promotions there.
Prism is the exclusive manufacturer of "Stuff" yarns--30-40 individually hand dyed, color and gauge coordinated yarns that are tied together end to end by hand. When knit, the yarns change from one to another in varying lengths.
In addition to five types of Stuff, we hand dye a full range of classic, luxury and fashion fibers, including our unusual "DoubleDyes"--yarns of combination fibers (usually rayon and nylon) that dye with different types of dye, allowing us to layer color upon color. Cashmere, silk, angora, kid mohair, tencel, bamboo, novelty nylons and more comprise Prism's Yarn Collection.
Many of our yarns are gauge compatible, and can be used interchangeably or to stretch Stuff as we do in our"Stuff Plus" Series .
