The selection of silk yarns were fantastic and reasonably priced. They had a huge variety that included blends with wool, linen, and camel. They offered roving and had cocoons available for purchase, as well as a few displays of the different stages of silk worms. For those interested in other gifts, their woven scarves and other garments were luxurious.

It was such a joy to walk into this gem of a store at Granville Island. There is plenty of silk for knitting, crocheting or weaving. There was a young lady there when I visited a few days ago and very friendly. If you are looking for silk fiber, for spinning or weaving or knitting and crochet this store has a lot of good quality silk. It is a silk studio and it shows. I loved it and hope to return some day soon, thanks for the friendly service and chat.

This is a beautiful, luxury spot showcasing local artisan silks. Nestled by the water on Granville Island, the tiny hut feels a bit magical on foggy days. A basket of silkworms on the front counter (at least during the tourist-heavy weeks) adds to the out-of-this-world vibe.

The selection gorgeous but pricey. You can get a few hand-dyed yarns, but the majority of the products are pre-knit or pre-woven garments. Come here to pick up a single skein of something incredible for a very special project (or as a "remember Vancouver" traveling yarn), not for your day-to-day basics.
