Each issue, Knitty reviews items of interest to knitters, including
spinning fiber and tools, yarn, accessories, kits and books.
You can see a few examples of our review pages here and here.
We read the books and test the products
that are sent to us. For that reason, press releases sent to
the Knitty e-mail address will not result in a review. We need
to see and touch and test each item before we can write about
it. Submission of an item does not guarantee a review in the
magazine; our choice of items featured depends on a number of
criteria including how well the item does what it's supposed
to do, aesthetics and construction quality.
To have your knitting-related product or book reviewed in
a future issue of Knitty, send a sample to:

Knittyspin’s Fiber Fiestas are held quarterly. We invite
a group of spinners with varying levels of experience, and each
samples your fiber. All reviewers are asked to spin, set, and
knit with the fiber, putting it through the same process an
average spinner would.
In order to have your fiber included in an upcoming yarn Fiber
Fiesta, please send at least 8 oz of each type of fiber you’d
like considered for review. Multiple submissions [more than
one type of fiber, blend or put up] are welcome! Please include
a short "bio"
of your fiber and/or your business
- this is especially important for unusual blends and small-batch
fiber companies; where your fiber can be purchased and the suggested
retail price for your fiber.
Samples will not be returned. The editor will contact you to
let you know in which issue your review will appear, so you
can make sure to have stock on hand.
