O U R   S T O R Y


Knit Wit Yarn Shop is located in lovely downtown Culpeper, Virginia.  Sole proprietor, Rebecca Abecassis, has lived in Culpeper since elementary school only leaving the area for a several years living in Iceland and Whidbey Island, Washington.  But Virginia always felt like home so she moved back to Culpeper to raise her two children and has been in Culpeper ever since. It's been a goal to open a shop amongst the other small businesses in downtown Culpeper.  Now, Rebecca is able to combine her love of knitting and her passion for fair trade crafts as well as local and US made gifts that support other artisans and entrepreneurs. Rebecca is proud to support local artists, both far and wide.
