Yarn Shop is a free mobile app from Camilla Valley Farm that allows the Knitter or Weaver to carry a Virtual Yarn Store around in their pocket!
Click to get the App
Designed for use on Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch mobile devices, Yarn Shop can be downloaded for free and provides an electronic catalog and shade organizer for many of the weaving/knitting yarns Camilla Valley Farm stocks in their Internet storefront and retail store.
What does the App Do?
Like a physical yarn shade card, Yarn Shop organizes pictures of each colour in a specific yarn's palette to allow the user to scroll through and match it with the color name and number. Unlike a a normal shade card, Yarn Shop also allows the colors to be sorted by name or number making it easy to find a particular shade.
The user can pick the yarn type and then see the complete color palette for that yarn and then by touching a colour get specific information on that yarn including fiber type, yardage, packaging, knitting gauge and weight as well as weaving sett.
As well as viewing and sorting all the yarn colors, favorite colors can be selected and remembered. These can be displayed and sorted in a separate "Favorites" section of the App. In addition, these favorite colours can be reordered by the weaver/knitter to see how the shades work together and to help in planning future projects.
