There is a good selection of Rowan, Debbie Bliss, Noro and other good quality, well-known yarns. Great place for browsing and dreaming up your next project. Don't miss the discount aisle in the front of the yarn section--I was able to pick up some Rowan yarn at only a couple pounds a ball.

Yarn in a department store!! It might not be impressive to most, but I absolutely loved it. The yarn selection was interesting, as I haven't ever seen such a large selection of Rowan & DB in one place. I only asked for help once, but the employee (who was knitting... knitting on the job?!? So jealous!!) was helpful and courteous. The knitting area also had a couch section and a class area section decorated with knitted seat covers and other items. What an unexpected and inviting shop!

Mostly Rowan and Debbie Bliss yarns and some lower end acrylic blends.

Staff are friendly, but not all that knowledgeable - have gotten incorrect information here from staff who swore a certain yarn would felt, which didn't. Spent a lot of time knitting and wasted money and yarn for nothing.

Do your research, then shop there!

Accessories are Pony, which is a rubbish brand. The quality is very low and 2 things I bought when I first started knitting broke.

However, on the upside John Lewis' return policy is ace, and they refunded the money with no hassle.

The John Lewis in Westfield also carries yarns, though not as much as the Oxford Circus store.

an update on this...they have gotten some better yarns in the last while and there are a few more British sheep selections.

Its a department store with yarn. Not the most thrilling venue to shop but the selection was good. They had lot of your basic British yarns like Louisa Harding, Debbie Bliss and Rowan.
