I love this bright, airy store, jam-packed with quality yarn. The selection is fantastic, the parking- not so much.

Yep, I love Urban yarns and comes a very close second after Three Bags Full in Vancouver. This was my Fleece artist galore, and also found great quality sale yarn. Lovely area and shop and an expensive visit ;-)

This is a great yarn store! I live in Vancouver for a while (now Im back to Brazil) and I had amazing classes at Urban Yarns! I learned about lace, sophisticated patterns etc at the most cool atmosphere! And I still shopping at UY! They send me products over to Brazil! Kathleen and all the UY team are great!!!

This store is well suited to those looking for high-end yarns...luxury fibers, hand dyed, that sort of thing. The only store I know of with a selection of beaded yarns. Most of the store is luxury yarns, which the price reflects, but there's also a couple of options that aren't as expensive. The decorating is quite something...you can tell that they put a lot of effort into it.

Some of the yarns are a bit pricey -- you can go across town & find the same stuff for a few dollars less a ball. Great variety of luxury yarns. The service oscillates between friendly and intimidating. I've always felt comfortable just browsing and petting the yarns, but sometimes it can be a bit scary to ask for assistance.

Cute window designs, but don't dare take a stroller in - you will be hissed out of the store.

Looking for mid/upper ends yarns -- you have to visit. Lots of Fleece Artist. Staff is friendly and helpful. A busy area so parking can be a problem.
