Because we love cats – they are soft and fluffy – not much different than the softest of yarns. Because cats clearly enjoy the knitting process – they keep the knitter company, often on her lap. Because no cat gives its owner a disapproving look when she brings home a new bag of yarns, even if there is yarn stashed everywhere. Because a cat sees what others do not – the true value of a knitting project lying unattended on the couch.


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