About Us

Over The Rainbow Yarn began in 2012 as a brick and mortar storefront in down town Rockland, Maine. You can read more about our story here. From the beginning, it has been our mission to support your fiber habit in any way we can. We offer classes and social circles, sponsor community events and outreach programs, and of course, carry a full range of yarn, tools, accessories, and patterns. If you need it for your crafter lifestyle, we’ll do our best to get it to you.

In order to spread the yarny love, we’ve opened our on-line store. Now, you can carry Over The Rainbow Yarn with you where ever you go. We’re so pleased to offer our digital friends the same great selection and service we give in our physical home.

If you get to Rockland, please look us up. We’d love to see you in person. Meanwhile, in the immortal words of Diana Ross, “No matter where you are, no matter how far, baby, there a’int no mountain high enough, a’int no valley low enough, a’int no river wide enough...” We’re here for you.

We offer a plethora of options from Berroco, Cascade, Quince & Co., and more. We feature a “Maine Yarn” section including artisan small batch yarns from local fiber producers, Knitter’s Pride and Addi knitting needles and crochet hooks, felting supplies, Eucalan wool wash, notions and an excellent selection of buttons to complement your hand-made creations.
