Can't say enough about how wonderful a place this is to shop for yarn!! The family that owns it are so friendly and knowledgeable. The old home they are located in makes for such a comfortable environment to sit and knit and enjoy the company of friends.

excellent selection of yarns, definetly "upper crust" yarn. less heavy on the lower end yarns-although they still do have some. great selection of unique, handpainted yarns. extensive collection of needles, accessories and notions. warm, adorable friendly atmosphere! you must visit this store if you are in the san antonio area!

Five-star yarn shop! I can't think of a better store! Love, love, love! Well stocked, well organized, great samples, good pattern selection. Wish I lived close-by!

GORGEOUS yarn store. I was nervous, because I had a cranky person with me who is opposed to yarn shopping. My husband. But he likes cats and the cats liked him, so he was happy. I got beautiful Malabrigo sock, which they wound for me. I can't wait to go again!

WOW!! Fabulous store!! I have never seen so many beautiful things!!

If you are any where near this store it is a must see and shop! Well worth the drive from San Antonio.

It should be called the AMAZING yarn shop.

Wonderful shop run be very delightful couple and her parents. Visited a few weeks ago and planning a trip back this Friday. Definitely a feast for the eyes as you walk in and begin to shop. This is everything I would want if it was my very own shop. Very friendly and lots of great natural light. Is it Friday yet???

Love, love, LOVE this store! Floor to (very high) ceiling yarn. I can't believe it has only been open three weeks - they have so much yarn!

Oooooooooooohhhhhhhh! Is this a lovely store or what? My knitting friends and I all gasped when we entered into this old house with yarn stacked up to the top of the very high ceilings. The atmosphere is so warm and inviting. The yarn offerings are varied and plentiful and the book/pattern selection was fabulous...and they only opened in October 2008. Although we live about 60 miles away, this will become one of our favorite yarn haunts. The store is run by a darling young couple and her parents. Well worth the trip.
