For every order at Jimmy Beans Wool $.05 goes to High Fives!

High Fives and Jimmy Beans Wool have just launched new post cards together!

Jimmy Beans Wool provides endless possibilities for you including yarn, knitting gifts, needles, kits, sale yarn, free knitting patters and more! In the last quarter of Fives for Fives Jimmy Beans Wool raised $1,300 for High Fives!

Jimmy is actually Laura. Laura, and her husband Doug, started Jimmy Beans in May 2002.

The nickname ‘Jimmy’ came from a song by a singer named Todd Snider called ‘Doublewide Blues’. In the song, he talks about this neighbor Jimmy that’s so cool because he’s got a blue plastic pool on the deck in front of his house. People started saying ‘cool like Jimmy’ and that turned into her current nickname!

While trying to figure out a name for the store, her nickname came up and They added the ‘Beans’ since they originally had a coffee shop as well. Since then, the yarn has overrun the store and the coffee is gone, but the name sticks!

Thanks for being a collective partner Jimmy Beans Wool!
