Notes

A very big store.
They sell yarn in cones for knitting machines as well as skeins for hand knitting.

Brands carried: Sandilane, Mondial, Ornaghi Filati, Sesia, Raqama, Coats Cucirini, Freccia, Vimar, Alessandra Filati, Ixia, Lane Borgosesia, Filatura di Crosa, Lora Festa, Biella Yarn, Lana Gatto.

They also have magazines and books (basically stitch dictionaries), knitting and crochet supplies and haberdashery.

Opening hours can be different from what it's stated on their website.
I myself went a couple of times and found them closed when they were supposed to be open, so I strongly recommend to give them a call to be sure they are open when you want to go.

As for now, these should be the opening hours:
Monday-Friday: 09:00 AM - 01:00 PM
04:00 PM - 07:30 PM
Saturday: Closed
They could be different during the winter.

Better to check on their website and/or phone to be sure they're open!
And be aware that Italian yarn shops tend to stay closed in August, sometimes the whole month!

Just visited this week and it was a great experience! Others have commented elsewhere that they were put off by not being allowed to touch the yarn, so I debated whether to even go, but so glad I did! Don't expect one of those cozy modern places where you can hang out and fondle yarn or sit and knit, but rather an old-timey dark and crowded shop literally stacked floor to very high ceiling with enormous amounts of yarns from around the world.
I explained that when I travel I look for something I can't find elsewhere, and ended up buying 3 very special Italian wools, 2 of which were organic, and one of those was dyed with natural products.
Very much worth the visit!

Great store. I visited it 4 times in May of 2016.
Fantastic selection of yarn. My husband and
I were given a tour of The warehouse of
the store which is HUGE. The prices were
good.
