About Us

commuknity is the Bay Area's premier yarn shop. Located in San Jose's historic Rose Garden neighborhood, we have 4,000 square feet of yarn, knitting and crocheting supplies from around the globe.

Our spacious living room is the ideal place to explore the beautiful colors and textures of yarn. We provide a comfortable and inviting place for knitters and other handcrafters to gather to share their passion, their talent and joy with one another.

Our mission is to foster a sense of community in our shop by supporting creativity, joy, craftsmanship, sustainability and goodwill locally and globally.

We support local Bay Area artists, small yarn companies throughout the United States, as well as a global network of collectives and cottage industries in emerging nations. Our commuknity cares program provides for local and global organizations with charitable knit and crocheted projects.

Our experience is that hand arts connect us to our hearts and thus to one another. Come join in the experience of connecting hands and heart!

Frog Tree Yarns

Frog Tree Yarns imports 100% alpaca yarn which is produced by a non-profit cooperative in Bolivia. This cooperative has trained between 800 and 1200 women to produce beautiful hand knit articles from this yarn.

Purchases made by Frog Tree Yarns provide income for these families and their communities. Funds from their project are used to support worthy educational causes in the local communities in Bolivia.
