Every crafter knows that a yarn mess can take over your house if the yarn is not organized properly. No matter the skill level, organizing your yarn stash is essential for maintaining productivity.

Why Organize Your Yarn Stash?

  • Organizing your yarn makes it easier to find what you need, saves you time, and reduces the amount of waste generated through tangling and damage.
  • Keeping track of your yarn stash can also inspire new projects and prevent unnecessary purchases.


Step-by-Step Guide to Organizing Your Yarn Stash:

1. Sort by Weight, Fiber, Brand, or Color:

The most popular ways to organize yarn is by color, fiber, brand, and yarn weight. To increase the efficiency of yarn selection, we recommend organizing the yarn based on weight and fiber.


2. Use Clear Yarn Storage Solutions:

To store your sorted yarn, choose clear bins or drawers. By doing this, you'll be able to see what's inside each container without having to open them, keeping your yarn dust-free and untangled. Recycled plastic bins or upcycled containers are environmentally friendly storage option


3. Label Everything:

If the yarn weight, fiber type, and color are not visible, clearly label each storage container. Maintaining organization and finding what you need quickly are crucial steps. There are four possible labels for boxes; "WIPs (works in progress)," "Will Use/Have Pattern," "Will Use/No Pattern Yet," and "Won't Use." Gather your yarn and decide how much you can use.


4. Implement a Yarn Database:

For those more comfortable with technology or who have a large stash of yarn, consider creating a digital inventory of your yarn. With a specialized app or a simple spreadsheet, you can track the condition, quantity, and location of each yarn type. 


5. Regular Review and Declutter:

Review your yarn stash often to keep your yarn collection from becoming disorganized and uncontrollable. Once you’ve distinguished which yarn you will not use again, you can set it aside for donation.
