About YMN

Yarn Market News is dedicated to bringing relevant news to yarn industry professionals. Our mission is to inform and support fiber and yarn businesses, both here and abroad, while facilitating communication and promoting cooperation among all segments of the industry. From manufacturer to vendor to retailer, YMN is devoted to uniting and expanding the yarn market with resources, information and up-to-the minute facts about our vital, fast-growing industry.

Yarn Market News is the only such resource for the yarn retailer and the yarn industry as a whole. The magazine was originally a newsletter in the 1980s, and existed as a respected magazine until 1989, when it was closed. In 2005, the magazine was revived and is currently published five times a year.
