Decent selection of yarns although not much in the way of sock/fingering weight. Staff was very cold as were the other knitters in the shop. Glad there are lots of choices in the Denver area!

I always make a point of using knitmap when I travel to find yarn stores on the road. I found the shop okay, nice yarn selection, not busy at all. The morning I was in there, there was one clerk and a single customer when I walked in. Not once in the 15 to 20 minutes that I was able to make a good slow lap through the store did she acknowledge my existence, or even say boo.

Yes, lovely yarns, but not so lovely that I would recommend it

cute location-shop was messy when i visited there. was fairly unimpressed with the selection of yarn-good stuff, nothing remarkable. i am kind of a yarn snob though-i like the indie hand-dyed stuff and i didn't see that much of that there.

Best LYS in Denver. I now don't need to drive to Boulder for Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins. And Andy (the occasional shop dog) is so sweet. This store is generally my first stop for anything. And the staff is exceptional. The owners as well. They have helped me with so many projects.

One of my favorite shops that I interviewed and featured on my travel-knitting blog
You'll find some recommendations for places to eat, things to do, all kinds of goodies.

I was in Denver for one day and looked for a LYS and was so excited to have this time for myself. I am not an odd or spooky person. Just an average looking late fourties person. Dressed average. But I was in the shop about a half an hour or so, circled it twice and found lots of beautiful displays, yarn, supplies and books. There were plenty of people working there. It wasn't way busy or anything and I never could figure out why not one person in the whole shop greeted me or asked if they could help me find anything. Getting the cold shoulder ruined my afternoon. I vowed to not go that far out of my way to go to another yarn shop. I'll just stick to the couple of one's close to where I live, where I know that I'll get good service and at least a hello.

When I go to Denver (about 3-4 times/year), I always check out a different yarn shop. Upon walking in with my husband and sister, we were not greeted at all and left to our own devices. I was prepared to spend some money, and asked a staffer to look up something for me on Ravelry so I'd know how much to buy. I felt that this was an annoyance and asked my husband and sister for a "reality check" to make sure I wasn't over-reacting. They *both* said I wasn't and my sister even used the word "snooty."

So I got 2 skeins and put the rest back. I was, however, offered to have them wound (which I didn't need as I do my own). I will mention, that there seemed to be 3-4 people working, and no one else was actively shopping (there were a couple of gals knitting at the table).

The fixtures holding the yarn was lovely, and the selection is very nice, but there are no indie or regional yarns that I could see.

I agree with "Antelopeb" that Fancy Tiger was a much better experience.

Went into this store excited for another yarn haunt in Denver. Reviews seemed great and they bragged about their helpfulness. Not at all impressed. Lots of yarn selection, but hardly any green choices. Overpriced and was greeted by one clerk with barely any intention of really helping me or my wife. Fancy Tiger on Broadway is a much nicer store for both ecological selections and staff friendliness. Much more for the new to crafting/ knitting and younger crowd.


by janbie on Friday, Mar 13 2009 at 11:06AM CDT

Yep...I pretty much echo what everyone else has said here. I was coming here more when I was going to CorePower Yoga on 13th but I'm not as much now since I changed work sites. And as a result, I'd be going to the LambShoppe more often too!

Located in a more residential than commercial area, the Lamp Shoppe is a wonderful store that is worth the visit when in Denver. The set up of the store is great, with high ceilings, warm paint colors, tables and chairs, and oodles of yarn. I was instantly smitten when I first walked in the door. They have a great selection of yarns, from local and regional companies to a great selection of Debbie Bliss and Noro. There are plenty of books and patterns for purchase and the store is definitely crochet-friendly. The staff is also super-friendly. And if you're thirsty, they have coffee and snacks for purchase. Too lovely!

My first visit to the Lamb Shoppe they stayed open 45 minutes past closing which I didn't realize until I left. I have always felt so welcome and nurtured here - with no pressure. The selction is great but what makes it is Mary Carol and her staff. Wonderful people always willing to help out with a technique. And it is fun to sit at one of the tables and knit while watching the neighborhood walk by [often dropping in]. Dog and people friendly.

Quaint shop, lovely, helpful people. Just can't say anymore than what zoomier stated on July 20. If you want a place that you can sit back and relax with a special cup of coffee and knit and visit with friends you do not even know, you must stop here. I am from out of town and have been visisting many Yarn Shops while I was in Colorado and Nebraska and Michigan. You can't beat this one!

The Lamb Shoppe is PHENOMINAL!
Everything you wanted in a yarn shop and then some. I can't think of anything that I would want added to the place.
Classes, tools, equipment, books, magazines, Espresso machine, plenty of non-crowded seating, and more.
Crocheters are welcome.
The owners and staff are so very helpful, and really do go above and beyond. Got a question, stumped, the customers, or staff will gladly give you a hand.
There is an ice cream shop next door, and next to that is a bakery, and across the street is a Domino's, and another pizza place. Drug store next to that, if you have a hankerin' for something to snack on.
Cold drinks are avaliable in the refrigerator, and they are more than happy to make you your favorite espresso drink.
The atmosphere and ambiance are better than home--no spouses or children to interrupt you!
The layout of the store just asks you to wander around.
Let's not forget the window displays--too cute, and changed often to keep your interest. Great job there!!!
I can't recall seeing customers leave annoyed, or upset--except for the fact that they have to leave the store. And maybe being upset that the store isn't closer to where they live, so they could visit it more often!
Many people come from around the country (and world--I know of Australians who regularly come), to just visit and get in some good visitin' and shoppin'.

LOVE this place and the people in it! This is the Tattered Cover Bookstore of yarn shops - large tables and comfy chairs surrounded by beautiful, colorful fiber. The staff and other knitters are so helpful and friendly - this is where I come when I need a lift, the vibe is wonderful.


by mlw1459 on Monday, Jun 09 2008 at 06:52AM CDT

I received the most genuine and warmest welcome I have EVER received in any shop(yarn or other type)in my entire life while visiting this shop on vacation. The shop is gorgeous and set up well and I was welcome to sit and knit to my hearts content. This shop deserves a visit and your business. I would be a "regular" if I lived in Denver.


by Anonymous on Monday, May 26 2008 at 09:21AM CDT

I loved this shop!! I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I took a day class there. I wish I lived closer so I could visit it more often.

This msg is for the anonymous lady that walked out of the shop , You must be a very unhappy person, and not very likeable.The shop has such GREAT ENERGY that if you are like this lady, (NEGATIVE ENERGY) you will be repelled like a irritating bug.

I have often found that the staff at this shop really doesn't know the difference between Aran and DK. Rarely have I been waited on in the shop and the last time I was there, it was a complete mess. I wouldn't recommend this shop.


by legendre on Monday, Mar 03 2008 at 11:31AM CST

Excellent Shop, great location, never any pressured to buy, comfortable chairs, good light, Love the Pajama Jam! We always include this shop on our group Yarn Crawls through Denver.

great shop... guy friendly

Staff was so helpful- my project wasn't knitting at all, by simply needing yarn for stitching and embroidering a wedding gown. They helped me flesh out my ideas with textures and materials (silk yarn!) that I'd never even thought of.


by Anonymous on Thursday, Jan 03 2008 at 04:15PM CST

Wow - great selection, well organized - extremely tempting!


by knittedwings on Saturday, Dec 22 2007 at 09:48AM CST

At the Lamb Shoppe you walk in and just want to sit down and knit with other knitters. It feels like your living room except they have an awesome amount of supply, just in case you should run out of yarn. Everybody working in the store is so friendly. No sale pressure at all just the common love for yarn. I love that they will put yarn on hold for you and that the store is open so late, sometimes to my luck even after store hours. Their coffee is really good too!


by paintlenore on Wednesday, Nov 28 2007 at 02:16PM CST

I love the Lamb Shoppe! The staff is downright awesome, helpful, friendly. I also like that there isn't any pressure to buy things, even though I usually do.


by InspectorLuv on Tuesday, Nov 27 2007 at 07:37AM CST

The staff make the difference at the Lamb. Overall, I've had very positive experiences here and I always leave with something. Although it's not the largest shop in town, they have a great yarn selection and cool stitch markers.

A cozy neighborhood shop, beautifully outfitted with hand-crafted containers for yarn on the walls. Lots of classes and a welcoming atmosphere. Coffee available. Monthly sock night and a "Pajama Jam" on occasional Saturdays.
