Newbury Yarns

Aldrich Robinson was a young woman in 1970's Bristol, England when she took up knitting. She did it almost entirely on her own, much in the way some people hack into DMV computers to change their recorded height. Aldrich sought only the help of her two aunts as she learned how to knit and purl. But it wasn't long before the novice evolved into an expert and when she relocated to the U.S. in the '80s, she even debuted a line of designer knitwear. Two decades of pouring her heart and soul into the line finally culminated in a boutique on Newbury Street in 2004—Newbury Yarns.

Much has changed since Aldrich picked up her first set of knitting needles, yet she remains a bastion of knowledge when it comes to trends in knitwear. She supplies customers with high-quality yarn and natural fibers so they have everything they need to make this season's hottest trends, from infinity scarves to colorful berets. But after all that time, she still hasn't forgotten how frustrating the first steps of learning to knit can be. That's why, as her aunts once did for her, she and her staff teach newbie crafters the basics at knitting and crocheting classes. For more experienced fiber artists, they hold biweekly knitting circles where participants can exchange tips and feel greater sense of community.
