A snappy new workspace for small, ambitious product teams
image description
Create great  
conversations.
Docs meets messaging in a Notion replacement for makers.
Yarn helps your team share context, collaborate on designs,
sketch plans, iterate, and understand the why and what-for.
So you can ship faster and have more fun doing it.
Yarn replaces
Deeply integrated with Slack, Figma, and Linear. Keyboard-first design. Desktop and web.
Product Teams
Made for teamwork.
Talk through plans, tear them apart, iterate, pivot, then rebuild them – together.
Faster and lighter than a wiki. More focused than Slack.
Discuss in context.
Get quick feedback from a teammate on a new proposal.
Or take everyone's input on a big decision.
Share the latest customer learnings.
Or design a new data model, as a team.
However you use Yarn, conversations are always in context, next to an artefact, not lost in a Slack thread.

Hey guys!
We've got some awesome new features in the pipeline. But I know we've got some bug-fixing/refactoring to do as well.
What are everyone's thoughts on this balance right now?

There's some critical refactoring we need to do in the comment-syncing 😅 Maybe we can have an extended design-protoyping phase for a few of those upcoming workflows to buy us some time to fix these!

The screen-recording feature is going to require us to invest more time in our video infra, which could fix the major issues we're facing with video clips atm. So I would pair those two! 🚀

People reallllly want some of the upcoming stuff. Maybe we could go back to them to really test this urgency (e.g. pay to priortize)?

People are using Yarn to run their companies, so it being rock-solid is the number one for me 🤷 So I'd attack the bug list.

The backend performance metrics are looking pretty good right now 👍, and I'm not sure we need to scale up, so on BE I'm ready for new stuff.
Protect the maker schedule
with round-robin threads.
Round-robin threads are paused until everyone's had a chance to respond.
So your team can mute notifications, put on their headphones, and
do their best work – without missing out on the important discussions.
They're great for more independent and more careful feedback.
And with alert snoozing, local-time prompts, and more – Yarn is built for async.
Purpose-built for product teams.
Yarn makes your existing creative and development workflows even more powerful.
Like how you can cross-post comments on mockups back into Figma.
Or mention issues created in Linear to keep the why and what-for close to the execution.
Yarn won't work well for students, for enterprise, or platform, ecom, or data startups.
Sketch, together.
Talk through data flows, user journeys, or market strategy – all in one place.
No more hunting through third-party apps – with native multiplayer whiteboarding, everything's in the doc and indexed for search.

Real-Time
Sometimes, the right time is right now.
Some interactions are better done real-time. Google Docs meets Slack Huddles.
Turn on audio for a quick call.
When it's helpful to talk things through, simply switch on audio for a few minutes.
Easy and lightweight.
Collaborate nicoleat the cursor level.
Yarn is built on top of operational transform algorithms – think more Google Docs than Notion.
So you can effortlessly work together as a team, without stepping on each other's toes.
Share in under a second with ⌘K
No more scrambling on a call to copy-paste links around, or waiting for access.
No more waiting in general, actually, as everything in Yarn is pretty zippy.
