Your "Local Yarn Shop" sharing creativity, inspiration & encouragement to fiber enthusiasts in Salem, Oregon and the Willamette Valley.


Tangled Purls is a delightful local yarn shop (LYS), sharing creativity, inspiration, and encouragement to knitters and crocheters of all ages.

We feature quality and luxury yarns, fibers, and accessories for knitting, crocheting, and other fiber arts, along with classes, workshops, and yarn related gift items. Our product lines include eco-friendly, fair trade, organic, globally responsible, and locally produced merchandise, as well as products from national and international vendors.

Our store has a fun, eclectic ambiance with plenty of room for browsing, and a cozy knitting nook. Our big “kitchen classroom” allows students (and staff) plenty of space for their projects and the opportunity to do “wet” workshops. Hot and iced tea are complimentary. It is our goal to “inspire to create”.

Tangled Purls is committed to staying in touch with new trends while maintaining a good selection of basic fibers. We hope to inspire beginning to intermediate knitters and crocheters, and encourage them with group classes, workshops, and private lessons. We also support local knitting and crochet groups with their charitable works.

Our studio is located in Century Square and is open Tuesday through Saturday at 11 am
(also open Mondays, November through February).
