What a beautiful, well stocked and friendly place to knit. Everyone is so helpful and friendly and nestled in a beautiful town. Wish I lived a bit closer but it never stops me from taking a little road trip!

Enjoyed this store when I first found it at the old location. Last 2 times I've visited, not as enjoyable. I live in MN and appreciate being able to scout out and support LYS, and I get to the Valpo area once a year or so as I visit family. Nice location, parking OK, nice coffee shops/restaurants nearby. Yarns and pattern availability OK but with no one in the store, store assistance (owner?) was rude (curt and unhelpful), she walked off to the kitchen and started heating soup then eating while I still had questions. Not sure what was going on. Time before that, I was really set to see what projects I could do while on vacation specifically because I had had a good experience at an earlier visit. Sadly, disappointed, but gave it another shot. Then the soup incident. Don't know if I'll back when there are options on my travels to that area. Too bad, because few stores with quality yarn are in the Valparaiso/Chesterton/Michigan City location.

I love this store! The selection is fantastic, the prices are resonable, and the service is the best! I only wish I lived closer.

This is a beautiful, incredibly well-stocked store with superior yarns, notions, classes, and excellent customer service. The minute you walk in, you'll fall in love with the warm, vintage look-and-feel.

There are TONS of finished projects on hand so you can see how something will look before you begin.

There is no such thing as a silly question. If you've purchased a pattern or supplies from Sheep's Clothing, the ladies there are happy to help you with any questions you may have. I know, I've asked plenty of them!

Sheep's Clothing is in Downtown Valparaiso, Indiana, which is a delightful shopping/dining area. If you're new to Valparaiso, be sure to budget some time to visit the surrounding stores and restaurants.

Have fun!

I am positive different people make the color choices at this store. It provides a nice balance for all to choose from.

Not the most individual colors, but the broadest range of Koigu KPPPM I have seen in one place.

This is a great store- large selection. Clerk- who I think is the owner -was extremely helpful, worked with me and other customers without effort and managed to help me find what I had been looking for at multiple shops and I left with a purchase that I was really excited about, couldn't wait to start knitting! I will go back.

Let me just say that I am *very spoiled* having a LYS less than a mile from my home that suits my yarn-snob tastes. But my family tent camps and one of my caveats is that I agree to sleep on the ground in exchange for a visit to a yarn shop near our camping destination.

So it was that I stumbled (drenched and freezing, as it were!) into Sheep's Clothing a few weeks ago with my men in tow. What a treat! Not only is there a hearty selection of wool and luxury fibers to whet my yarn-snob appetites, the real treat here was the selection of books! Can I tell you how long "Knitted Tams" by Mary Rowe has escaped my grasp? Sheep's Clothing had four copies in stock! And buttons - so many unique buttons...

This yarn store is definitely worth a visit. It's worth driving out of your way for. Not only that - it's worth an extended drive to go to the classes they offer. Helpful staff, great selection, cozy atmosphere - **LOVED IT!**

I love this shop. I've taken classes and their teachers are the best. The yarn selection is amazing.

Wonderful store, helpful people... and I love all the finished projects on display. The first time I walked in, I saw a finished scarf that I LOVED. I bought the supplies to make my own on the spot! Wish it was closer to home (South Bend)!

I would like to buy a gift certificate for my wife from your store as a Christmas gift. Could I possibly do this on line or through the mail? Dan Nemeth

Completely agree--I live in Manhattan, and Sheep's Clothing is better than any shop I've been to there. I stopped in for quick advice on altering a pattern to suit a different yarn; the ladies insisted that I knit combo swatches of my yarn with three others to see how they looked, and were so helpful that I picked up several new tips and tricks. I wish they weren't so far away!

This is one of my favorite shops in the US. They are friendly, have a good selection and I can and have spent hours in there. I like to stop whenever I can.
