A quaint shop in Islington dedicated to the age-old pastimes of knitting and crocheting. A large range of hand-dyed wools adorn the walls and shelves, as well as evidence of what can be made from it (toys, shawls, little knits). Of course they also stock the tools needed to make these items, and the shop hosts regular beginner to advanced workshops to teach the necessary skills.

My most favorite yarn shop in the world. I live in the states and we have tons of shops but none that inspire me more than Loop.

The largest selection of fine yarns both in colorways and brands. This super friendly shop will help you with your project to make it the best it can be. The inviting sit-down-and-knit-for-a-bit upstairs is a welcome change to the buy ordinary shop, it feels like visiting your old aunt or grandma , and your always welcome.

This is a jewel of a yarn shop, tucked away in intriguing Camden Passage. It stocks a wide range of luxury yarns but also more middle-range ones. And much much more - it is also a haberdashery paradise (quirky buttons, hooks, notions) and a great source of advice. When I is it London on business I always call in - it's 5 minutes walk from Angel, Islington, and a Tube stop away from Kings Cross on the Northern Line, so really easy to get to!
