Justine & Cleo Knitting Gif


 Justine opened Cast Away Yarn Shop in 2008. After 5 years in a lovely 4th street storefront, she moved around the corner into Cast Away's current location in the historic 1906 building- a huge well-lit beautiful brick warehouse loft in the heart of Railroad Square.

In the summer of 2017 Justine's daughter Cleo, a recent art school graduate, came aboard as partner. Cleo brings experience in knitwear design, photography, graphic design and computer coding skills.

Cast Away was featured in Sunset Magazine in 2014. This amazing 1906 brick warehouse loft is 4000 square feet of yarn, needles, notions, bags, looms, and gifts.
