Loop, Islington

Independent yarn shop in Islington.

Previously situated on Cross Street between Essex Road and Upper Street photo, in June 2010 they moved to larger premises in Camden Passage down by Angel Station.

They mostly focus on the more interesting kinds of yarn, including Habu, Madelinetosh, Malabrigo, BlueSky Alpacas, HandMaiden, Colinette, Rowan, Debbie Bliss, and Sublime, as well as hand dyed/handspun yarns sourced from the UK and all over the world.

They also run knitting and crochet workshops; see their website for details.

Accessibility: Three shallow steps to get into the main shop. In the old location, the classes were held down more stairs, in the basement — not 100% certain of the situation in the new place.
