The Mermaid’s Purl is a boutique shop in Rhode Island that specializes in small batch yarn and crafting supplies from around the world. We are located in the heart of the historical, seaside village of Wickford, surrounded by beautiful harbor waters.
The Mermaid’s Purl was opened in 2009 by Lizzie Shriner after she decided to turn her obsession with knitting into life's work. After outgrowing her original space, she moved the shop across the village to its current location. The shop has become a community hub for needle artists who inspire each other through their crafts.
