Fuzzy Goat is a charming Historic Downtown Thomasville yarn shop that assists customers in finding delightful projects to knit by hand, the majority of which are destined for gifts or charity. We’re knitting together the community by putting consciously chosen yarns into hands of new & experienced makers, a space where conversation across generations & life experiences is sought after, something that is disappearing in our society. We made a business from a rough-worn neglected Main Street building and filled it with beautiful yarns made by strong women. We’re truly an indie business with 90%+ merchandise created by other indie makers. Our eclectic lodge vibe, luxuriously appealing yarns from independent, Southern and US sources, and focus on attainable challenges, create a memorable experience. One of the favorite pieces in the shop is our battered SERVICE sign over the counter, announcing we are here to serve. We have brought public art and the maker experience to a greater audience through our sponsorship of Art in the Open public fiber art, engaging the community in World Wide Knit in Public Day, developed a Yarn Amnesty program delivering 100’s of pounds of yarn to a Georgia Women’s prison and revitalizing and energizing Main Street life by contributing to the public amphitheater and Creative District projects. We host joint events with local businesses, encouraging our destination customers to support other local businesses with Stitches & Stories at our local bookstore and retreats at our local B&B. We host regular Fuzzy Fiber Days with public elementary students introducing them to small business life. We bring public art & the maker experience to a greater audience revitalizing Main Street life. Because we don’t just sell yarn; we’re a quirky, vibrant movement!
