Gunilla is such a sweet person and very helpful when learning how to knit. She has created a very welcoming place that encourages people to come back either for additional assistance, or just to knit and buy more yarn. :) Very happy customer!

About The Golden Fleece

Upon moving to the Bay Area from Sweden, the first yarn store Gunilla Leavitt visited was The Golden Fleece, then in a different location. She went on to work in yarn shops all around the Bay for years, earning the title Knitting Doctor for her troubleshooting advice on visitors' projects. Leavitt has recently come full circle by taking over ownership at The Golden Fleece, where she channels her experience and passion for yarn craft into helping a new flock of visitors.

A prismatic array of yarn skeins fills the shelves, in diverse materials that include everything from raw silk and cashmere to alpaca and acrylic-wool blends. Classes and workshops for all skill levels help customers transform that yarn into clothes, as does the store's stock of notions, magic wands, and patterns.
