There is nothing about this store I don't like.

They offer a wide variety of yarns including Koigu, Manos, Noro, Rowan, Cascade including a large selection of sock yarn. Whoever does their buying has very similar tastes to my own.

They also have an extensive offering of tools and notions. Swifts, stitch markers, buttons, and a huge supply of knitting needles including my favorite brands of Skacel and Karbonz.

Their spinning and fiber supplies are varied and beautiful.

The space is inviting and comfortable with plenty of places to sit and chat and knit.

Finally, I find their staff to be some of the most knowledgeable and friendly of any yarn store I've ever been to. I feel like I'm visiting friends when I go there and will always find whatever I'm looking for and more.

I'm thrilled to have such a great knitting resource so close to where I live.

Staff wasn't overly friendly, but more friendly than some of the other shops I have been to. I love the selection of yarns and spinning supplies! :0) I wish the shop was closed to where I live because I would spend my Saturdays there knitting and/or spinning.

Happened upon this store while driving home from teaching piano. I am a k-new k-nitter...love crocheting and quilting and various other crafts. Just learning to knit. Wonderful yarn, very nice and helpful staff. I'm hooked!

Very cute store, with a wonderful staff. Nice selection of yarns, even some discounted.

Good selection of sock yarns, including some I was not familiar with. They have Hiya Hiya metals which I would have purchased had I been SURE TSA wouldn't take them away from me at the airport.

This shop will definitely be on my list of "have to go" whenever I'm in the Philadelphia area.

The selection at Twist is top-notch. Whenever I'm in the area, I always try to stop and I'm never disappointed!

Very clubby atmosphere and a little intimidating for this beginner. Terrible return policy - store credit only, and that's given with a snarl. Great yarns and fiber, once you get past the owner's attitude.

Lovely yarns. I found the owner to be very gracious and helpful, even though I didn't buy anything. Will definitely go back again.

Unfriendly atmosphere. Beautiful selection of yarn, but who I'm assuming to be the owner clearly did not want us there and was too busy with her friends to be very nice. We actually had purchases in our arms - but put them back on the shelves because of the unfriendliness and snarky comments that were made.
