About Cascade Yarns
Cascade Yarns is a family-owned and operated business that was founded in the late 1980s by Bob Dunbabin in Seattle, Washington. Bob's mission was to provide the highest quality yarns at affordable prices, and his son Rob and daughter-in-law Shannon have continued this legacy. The husband/wife duo purchased the company in 2011 and remain dedicated to exceeding expectations on quality and price.
