Where does one obtain shawl pins? Are they strictly a specialty item, available in either boutiques or jewelry stores, or can you find them in department stores? I'm thinking of the ones that are like what we used to call stick pins. I haven't seen those for sale anywhere since I was a girl. I've tried myself using a brooch, but the ones with a long enough pin are usually pretty heavy.

I'm in the beginning stages of planning for a wedding shawl for one of my virtual children, and would love to include a pretty shawl pin with it. I haven't seen any for sale, other than occasionally here at KP in the classifieds. If any of you who make these have any in stock, feel free to message me privately. I haven't seen the dress, and I only know the color, so I really am just window shopping at this point.

Any other tips or suggestions greatly appreciated.

There are people right here who make and sell shawl pins. I just purchased a lovely one!

Try www.theshawlpinstore.com. It was mentioned here on KP awhile ago. The prices are reasonable, some as low as $8, and the pins are lovely and very good quality. I've bought three from them and plan to get more.


Great site! My sister-in-law has Parkinson's along with some other ailments and is in a nursing home. I've been thinking about what would work for a shawl closure for her since her fingers are not adept and her eyesight is poor. Maybe the old fashioned sweater closure is the answer.

Amazon, eBay, antique shops but look in the hat pin selection since dealers usually don't know what they are. One of mine is a spike cut of a deer antler. That one is used in a rustic color and design and fits it perfectly.

Lots of nice shawl pins on Etsy, and not all expensive.


Yes, I buy mine there and include one when I gift a shawl. I also buy from KnitPicks when they are on sale. I've been happy with all my shawl pin purchases.

I just ordered (five minutes ago) two from love knitting. It is a website where you can order many things.

Sorry, this is probably a dumb question, but what are 'virtual children' ? Please and thank you in advance. 😊

Lion Brand Yarn has a metal one you can use on anything. I use wooden but this looks good. It would replace my safety pins. Comes in a number of styles and materials. Pricey but it's jewelry too.
