How We Got Here in Chillicothe

Shipping available for all your needs.

611 N. 4th Street, Chillicothe, IL 61523

Born out of our love of Alpacas and fiber, Criative Threads, LLC seemed a natural transition to that next level. Raising alpacas for almost 16 years we began working with our fiber and it was a simple leap to move to a yarn shop as a lateral business that goes hand in hand with our herd of 40 alpaca. Offering quality yarns in Chillicothe seemed to be the next step.


Criative Threads is a yarn shop with high quality yarns made primarily from natural fiber including Alpaca, Merino, Silk and other natural fibers with some touches of synthetics, only when needed to make that special yarn. Seeing the need for evening and weekend hours in the area, that became our focus.

Offering classes in Knitting, Crochet, Dyeing natural fibers, Spinning, Felting and just plain having fun with fiber!

Don't yearn for a class? Then just come and sit and join the fun that is Criative Threads. Everyone is welcome to come in and sit to work on that special project. Groups welcome.


Experience the difference at Criative Threads for yourself.
