Lion Brand Yarn

Lion Brand is a family-owned and operated business and a beloved American brand since 1878. Today, the business is run by four members of the fourth generation of Blumenthals. It is their passion for yarn, reflected by all Lion Brand associates, that is the secret to Lion Brand’s success.
