Not only does Seattle have the Space Needle, it also has six yarn stores within its city limits. Truly a yarn paradise compared to London or Paris.
I spend most of my yarn shopping time and money at The Weaving Works since I’m usually drawn to their excellent selection of textile books, which almost always includes the very latest knitting titles. They have a good selection of all types of yarns, from traditional Shetland to trendy eyelash and it’s the only place in town that carries Koigu. If you are looking for spinning supplies, then this is the place to go. I plan on taking their beginning wheel spinning class in March.
My other favorite yarn store is Hilltop Yarn. Although, they have a much smaller selection of yarn and books, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Just beware that it is a very popular place in a very trendy neighborhood so it can get quite busy on the weekends. It’s a very cozy, but comfortable place to take classes.
If I can’t find what I’m looking for at these two stores then I visit the following stores.
