Great store! Very friendly, welcoming staff and varied yarn stock. Nice book selection too. Call and check for hours; open until 5:00 on Sunday and I almost didn't go, as it was almost 4:00 when I arrived. I believe the sign said they have added Monday hours too. I really enjoyed my vacation visit to this store and wish I lived closer.

Fabulous shop! On the 2nd floor of a city building nestled is this charming haven of yarn and knitting bliss. Their yarn selection is top notch - I can't wait to go back!!

I love this shop! A great little tucked away treasure with super friendly staff and lots of inspiring projects!

Like most knitters, I always see what lys is around when I travel. So when we popped into DC for a conference I went in, and I'm SO glad I did. This is, by far, a really wonderful lys! The staff is really friendly (and not in the annoying way).

They have a fantastic selection of yarns--from the great standby for sweaters, Cascade, to indie dyers like Wandering Wool. There was even some roving for spinning. Usually when you visit enough yarn shops you begin to see the same thing over and over, but not here. There were cute handmade buttons, yarn kits, and gorgeous US-raised wools.

There is a great table in the back and a cute sitting/yarn room in the front. I felt very welcome here and you will, too.

Yes, the staff is very, very friendly and helpful. The front room was bright and airy. They did have a good selection of yarn based on their size. I really wanted to make a purchase; however, of three yarns I decided on, each had split lot numbers. Unfortunately I walked out without a purchaes which is extremely rare. Would recommend just because it was a fun place to be.

Worth the climb to the second floor, this bright and airy shop on Dupont Circle is welcoming in every way, from helpful staff; to customers who love to hang out and knit and share a laugh; to yarn arranged in two rooms according to weight, and luxury yarns, needles, hooks and notions conveniently arranged by the registers. A computer is available for customers' use to browse online patterns (or if you're like me, to check stash online on Ravelry to see if a new yarn will work with what's already in your closet!), and a ballwinder and swift are set up between a large window and comfy seating, in case you want to cast on your lovely new yarn right then & there.

Go ahead, you deserve it! Check out Looped Yarn Works and stay awhile! Personally, I think they should call the place a "Yarn Spa" because I felt pampered and refreshed when I left with my purchases.

I am in D.C. right now for a business trip and decided to stop in partly just to check out the store but also because I legitimately needed some tools. The shop has a great selection of yarn - they have both high end and more economical yarns, and a good variety to choose from at any gauge.

The staff is SUPER-friendly and helpful, and that influences the customers, too. Everyone was willing to chat with me about their projects, and they gave good advice about what tools/yarns are appropriate for which projects.

They also have a crocheter on staff.

They do have some pencil roving, which you could either knit or spin with, given your preference.

"Seating" isn't checked above, for some reason, but there is a loveseat in the front room, so you can sit and knit.
