One of the store's enduring staples is the vibrant and ethically sourced yarn from Darn Good Yarn, which has graced its shelves since the beginning. Crafted from recycled sari silk, this collection not only captivates customers with its unique story but also resonates deeply with Brainstorm Art Supply's commitment to sustainability—a core value cherished by both the store and its patrons.
