What a mess!! It's a totally disorganized store, but it's the only place in Amsterdam that I have found Phildar yarns. They also have a decent selection of yarns, also Lana Grossa, as mentioned previously. If you have a pattern, and you know what you're looking for (cotton blend, wool, weight, etc), just go ask for help right away. There's no sense in browsing, the shop is a mess, and bags of yarn are piled everywhere. They will help you out no problem.

The neighbourhood is mildly interesting. It's outside of Amsterdam center center, and tends towards middle eastern/Turkish cafes and bakeries. If you're coming from out of town, I wouldn't make this a must see. It's a "I can't get out of town to go to a nice place, so I'll settle for this one, because I can take a tram there".

While Sylvia's has a good selection of Lana Grossa yarn, it's cluttered and uncomfortable to be in there for very long. And most of the yarn is in places where you have to ask to see it. Lots of other craft stuff - and she seems to try to dress the place up. Just too much stuff around. Don't go. It's horrible. Skip skip skip.
