Because we love cats – they are soft and fluffy – not much different than the softest of yarns. Because cats enjoy and support knitting – they keep the knitter company, often on the knitter’s lap. Because no cat has ever given its owner a disapproving look when she brings home a new bag of yarns, even though there is yarn hidden everywhere. Because a cat sees what others don’t – the true value of a knitting project lying unattended on the couch. None other than the cat will guard it with extreme care and curl up with her little body on the work in progress.


Ten years ago we took in a stray, starved and not particularly friendly kitten. Melania contributed many great ideas to creating this shop. Hence the name of the shop “purr” + “perfect yarn” (to our liking) = “purrfectyarn”.
