Great selection of specialty yarns like swans island, blue ridge yarn, three Irish girls, island yarn, etc. Small shop, but well worth the visit. They moved their shop to a blue house (second floor) about a block from their previous location. 5611 B Grove Ave.

Thank you so much Ute and everyone else for the warm welcome! I was stopping by being on a weekend trip down here and it was wonderful to visit and cuddle your goodies! Thank you!!

I love this shop. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They have a great variety of yarns to choose from and all the accessories you'd ever need (or want). It's a little difficult to find, but well worth the time and energy. It doesn't hurt that there's an awesome cupcake shop upstairs either!

This is my favorite local yarn store, lovely selection, lovely people, very friendly and helpful and they encourage "petting" the yarn!

I adore this shop. I visited soon after I arrived in town and found the staff to be amazingly friendly and helpful and though the store is itself quite small, the selection is very good. I had only a little trouble finding it but it is definitely my favorite LYS.

HIGHLY recommended!!!

Love the little town and cafe next door. I agree the location is well less that expected, but the selection is surprising. The staff is very helpful and I sat and knitted the morning away on a Tuesday morning, getting to know many of the Tuesday regulars.

I agree it was hard to find, but the selection was great and I love another reason to trek out to the Grove and Libby district in Richmond. Just look for the sweet toy shop and then head to the back of the store. Worth a visit!

Nice shop, a little cramped and hard to find (Hubby drove me around for about 20 minutes looking for it...nearly lost his patience) but well worth the stop. The sales staff is very friendly.

Wonderful shop, wonderful service. Has been in business close to 30 years.

A bit tricky to find. Some very nice sock yarns.
