Darn Good Yarn - Importing Yarn and Jobs!

Darn Good Yarn - Importing Yarn and Jobs!

Along with over 300 families in India and Nepal that get a majority of their work for their co-operatives from Darn Good Yarn, Darn Good Yarn also employs some great folks in the rest of the world too. Of the Darn Good Yarn employees, both full and part time, 7 come from the US, 1 in Canada, 1 in the UK and 1 in Australia. You can read up about everyone in our "Meet the Team" page here.

 

These jobs would not be possible without the freedom to import such wonderful products from places like India, Nepal and Chile. In fact, over half of all of the businesses dependent on imports here in the US are small firms just like us! In celebration of small business and the benefit of imports, Stefanie Holland, Director of International Policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, used Darn Good Yarn as an example of a successful import business creating jobs overseas and here at home. Check out the article she wrote for "Imports Work for America" week here.

 

Thanks so much to Ms. Holland for mentioning us! We hope to be able to expand our imports, as well as more easily reach our international customers, even more in the future.

Happy Shipping,

Marissa :)
