Boston Fiber Company was opened in July of 2023 with the goal of getting yarn to crafters and specializing in independently dyed yarn from local dyers as well as supplies from Black-owned, POC-owned, and queer-owned businesses. Boston Fiber Company hosts classes and events as well and donates a portion of sales every other month to a different organization.
