While visiting from out of town, I did a bit of a yarn crawl in the area and found this to be the best overall yarn shop that I visited. Unlike some of the shops listed on Knitmap for this area, this is actually a 100% yarn shop. The owner was extremely nice, friendly and knowledgeable. The yarn selection was all the things I like- a good mix of high-end pleasures and useful workhorses. The sit n knit crowd was mature, friendly and welcoming to a stranger. If I was in the area and actually needed to buy something, I would go here first.

Cute little shop with a nice selection of sock yarns. Will probably visit again when home visiting the family.

String Theory is a very nice shop located in downtown Glen Ellyn. They carry quite a bit of yarn, needles, accessories, and patterns. A friend and I drove out specifically to visit this shop and were not disappointed. Everyone there was very welcoming and helpful.
