Purl Soho [Back to Blog]
OFFLINE

 






If it's your first trip to NYC, you'll probably plan to spend some time wandering around the city's trendy Soho neighborhood for window shopping and browsing the chic shops.  The good news is that you can shop for yarn in Soho as well -- Purl Soho.

The shop is easy to get to by subway with a few blocks walk.  You can take the 1 train to Houston or the B,D, F, or V trains to Broadway-Lafayette.  If you've just visited the Point NYC yarn shop, you can walk to Purl Soho.   

This charming shop is packed to near bursting with yarn.  If you're a fan of Koigu Painter's Palette (and who isn't?), you'll find a great selection, along with Ozark Handspun, Farmhouse Yarns, lots of handpainted and handspun yarns, Blue Sky Alpaca, Jade Sapphire, Artyarns, Rown, Louet, Lorna's Laces and lots of chunky and fuzzy mohairs.  Notions include Addi and Bryspun needles.

Our favorite thing is that all the yarns have been knitted up in swatches that are nearly scarf-sized so you can get a real feel for how they look when knitted into a garment.
