I have a daughter who attends college in Philadelphia and I got a midnight call that she was on her way to the ER. I hopped in my car and arrived two hours later. As I stayed with her for the next three days I googled a yarn store, found Loop and ran for yarn and needles. I arrived before the store was open, but saw the owner was inside and so I knocked on the window. He was so nice, he opened the shop for me, helped me pick out something that was simple enough to knit as I watched my over sick daughter. My daughter recovered and she now has a beautiful reminder of days spent in the hospital. Every time I visit my daughter, we make a stop to this shop.

Loop is a nice little shop with a good if not comprehensive selection of yarns. Nice neighborhood feel.

I didn't like this place at all. The staff was rude and the guy who apparently owns the place, didn't have time to answer my questions. I didn't see anything in there that I couldn't purchase at Rosie's Yarn Cellar for the same price or less, but with much better service. What was really creepy to me was that it looked so much like Purl in NYC. It was like it was copied from the former Sullivan Street location; even the logo and the advertising has a Purl feel. Creepy! By the way, if you go to NYC, you must go to Purl. The people there are lovely and they really have a great place.

This is one of my top places for yarn selection ever, but the staff always leaves me feeling like I don't belong.

I didn't have the same experience in Loop. I found them not to be particularly helpful at all. In fact, I was rather surprised at how ignored I felt. Even the questions I asked weren't answered helpfully. I did notice, however, that there were lots of people in there who were being helped, but they were much younger than me. Perhaps it was an age thing. Unfortunately for them, middle aged women may have alot more money than people just starting out in life, so it's their loss is $

I stopped in while in town in the fall of 2009, hoping to get some yarn that I couldn't get back home, and came away with a few sampler skeins of handpainted merino done by a local woman. They had so many beautiful yarns, I felt like a kid in a candy store. A bit more pricey than I'm used to, but I haven't been a high-end yarn consumer in the past. I had a great time talking with staff. They were very friendly. I wish I'd been able to drop by for their stitch n' bitch while I was in town.

Yarns are on the high end. Prices match. I bought some organic cotton and saw a few other yarns I might consider in the future.

Great high end selection of yarn, and beautifully organized shop. A hip, young staff. I visited last year, they had an amazing selection of Koigu, Alchemy, etc. Bought some Helens Lace for a shawl. Don't forget to check out the sale area too. They also have a website.

I think loop is a great yarn store for high end yarns. Every skein in the store seems to have been chosen with care. They have many cashmere or cashmere blend yarns, including Sauveterre. The salesperson told me they are one of only 5 US distributors of this yarn. Certainly I have not seen it in a LYS before. Even the yarns that you can find elsewhere, like Koigu, are so abundant and beautiful here (a whole wall of Koigu) that it seems that someone must choose to stock each one. The prices are completely standard for the yarns they carry. The staff is nice, and the ability to get your yarn wound into a cake before you leave is appreciated. They have a very nifty electric ball winder. I wish that I lived in Philadelphia so that this could be my LYS!
