Owner was very helpful and had sweater quantities available of many yarns and colors. It is quite packed to the brim, but it is worth poking into. She has a great spread of price ranges and they were all marked-either on the skein, the main bag, or the basket it's resting in. I'm not sure what the price complaint was about-it is very reasonable compared to other LYS's I've seen. Most yarns were on par for price point. Actually, I purchased sweater quantity of a silk yarn because it was BY FAR the best price for what that yarn typically retails for-$4 less per hank (said hanks had 50yds more each) than another store in the greater Cleveland/Akron area. I will go back once I manage to knit through some of my newly acquired stash!

Pretty much a jumble - if you are the artistic type who likes to delve, this place can seem like a Aladdin's cave. But if you want to find something specific, or actually find a price on something... kind of a headache to maneuver. HUGE selection, but everything is piled on top of each other and trying to get a straight simple answer can be a challenge. I've been twice, but not sure I'll go again. Its Fairlawn pricing (IE - expect everything to be a good 20% and up more than anywhere else) and there are too many other options available in the area to pay premium prices for simple items.
