about The Purple Purl on Sat Nov 28 09:34:24 -0600 2009

Lovely store, can get really hectic and busy, but I love it there!

about Romni Wools on Sat Nov 28 09:36:44 -0600 2009

They have everything you could possibly want, and more. Love the bargain basement too! I can get lost for hours in there!

about Yarn Forward - Glebe Store on Sat Nov 28 09:57:34 -0600 2009

Good selection of yarns, but not the friendliest service. They seem to be way better with their sewing machine customers.

about Wool-Tyme Flagship Store on Sat Nov 28 10:01:34 -0600 2009

Lots of great yarn, and the warehouse sales are pretty good. They don't really seem to like under 30s (perhaps even under 40s) though, particularly one or two ladies.

My FMIL gets good service there though, and likes having a yarn store close to her home.

about Effiloché on Sat Nov 28 10:04:25 -0600 2009

My favourite store to visit when I make it out to Montreal. Such pretty yarns, and a really nice vibe.

about Wool N' Things on Sat Nov 28 10:07:20 -0600 2009

Gorgeous yarns, but I have seen several of their prices a bit high (not because they're luxury yarns, since I see the exact same yarns available elsewhere for less)

about Mouliné on Tue Aug 10 00:56:04 -0500 2010

I keep returning, and finding myself somehow disappointed by the store. The staff are fine, though not quite as personable as some other places, but they're all polite and know what they're talking about. They carry many of the nicest brands, such as Malabrigo, Punta, and Berrocco, as well as many many more.

I think perhaps my biggest problem with them is simply that they don't carry a single yarn that is unique to them (I travel between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal quite frequently, so do a lot of yarn tourism!) While I do expect most of one's stock to overlap with other stores, since there are only so many suppliers in Canada, I also like to be able to find one or two yarns that are special to just the store, or at the very least the city. (Tanis Fibre Arts which is the closest they carry to that can be found in multiple other stores, and I own a ton of it!)

about Ariadne on Tue Aug 10 01:10:57 -0500 2010

The owners are super great people, I always love making the visit. The yarns are very nice, but there aren't enough of them (what can I say, I love the overstuffed look!) Certainly the best atmosphere out of the stores in the city.

I'm dying to be back in the city on a day that's not a Monday so I can go buy some of their fibre to try!
