He mencionado más de una vez aquí que tiendo a hacer mi las compras en línea de hilo de los tintoreros y vendedores independientes (como Caramelo Madeja y Loophole por Six Madejas). O si no lo hago en el LYS del lugar que visito cuando viajo. Pero, por supuesto, San Francisco está lleno de gente de hilo y amante así que tenemos un montón de opciones para la compra de hilo aquí en la ciudad. Algunos de ellos lo he comprobado y algunos de ellos no tienen. He aquí un resumen de las tiendas de hilados San Francisco (en la ciudad sólo, no en el área que rodea la bahía aunque Liz encima en Diciembres de Donna es una de las varias personas que me han dicho que realmente tengo que revisar la LYS través de la bahía en Sausalito).

Los que yo he estado:

  1. Imaginknit. Este es el “grande” store that almost everyone’s heard of if they ask around for a yarn store in San Francisco. It is a large two-room yarn store in The Castro with yarn that goes from floor to ceiling in both rooms. It’s colorful and airy and light, que me encanta. In fact I really like this store. They have a lot of selection, there are always multiple staff members and the people who work here are helpful without being overbearing. They have items for crocheters as well as knitters. Para ser honesto, I can’t remember if they swatch in crochet as well as knit but I’m thinking they do. I really rarely look at the swatches on display in the LYS and I haven’t been there in awhile. What I do remember is that they have a lot of thegoodyarns that you can’t get at a chain store but can get at other standard LYS options in many cities. So there are a lot of great options but not necessarily super-unique options. Good place, aunque, and they have an tienda online. They also offer several crochet classes, including a freeform workshop, although I’ve not taken any.
  2. Atelier Yarns. This is the yarn store that is closest to my home in the Lower Pacific Heights area (ish) and so the one that I have been to most often. It is a knit-heavy store that doesn’t have swatches or patterns done up in crochet. I wouldn’t say it’s anti-crochet, aunque, although since I’m not one of the people who is particularly aware of this problem I sometimes don’t notice it where other crocheters might. Por ejemplo, No he pedido ninguna ayuda crochet, así que no sé si podían decirme respuestas si lo hiciera. Yo tiendo a preferir Internet para esas cosas. icon smile 7 San Francisco Yarn Stores Tienen un taller de ganchillo y de punto, aunque, donde las preguntas, ya sea para las embarcaciones pueden ser contestadas. En todo caso, tienen un montón de opciones diferentes de hilo y siempre encontrar algo aquí que me gusta. Es una habitación pequeña pero de una manera acogedora. Aquí es donde tengo mi Sólo por Langalux y KnitCol hilados. Una cosa que me encanta en esta tienda es su sección de venta.
  3. Greenwich Yarn. Esta tienda cerca-to-the-Bay fue la primera tienda de lanas que me fui a la ciudad después de que primero aprendí a tejer y totalmente me intimidaba porque yo no sabía lo que hacía. Looking back it’s actually a great little store for the crocheter who wants a cozy little place of her own. It’s a small two-room store with yarn from floor to ceiling in both rooms. The front room is home to a large table where a group seems to be constantly gathered just working on their stuff (I say constantly but I’ve only been in there two or three times and it could be coincidence, didn’t seem like it, aunque). The one thing I didn’t like about this store was that it had no prices on the yarn. But it’s been awhile; that could have changed. Su sitio web tells me that they’ve been there for 30 año.
  4. Princesa Animal. This is the store newest to me. I met @PrincessAnimal at SF Crafting in Public a couple of weeks ago and I’ve since been in her Mission neighborhood store twice. It’s actually a full craft store (San Francisco’s newest rock ‘n roll
    craft bar
    “), not just a yarn store. Sin embargo, it has a section of yarn that is from local dyers including a line of yarn with colorways specially dyed for Princess Animal and named after the neighborhoods in San Francisco so it’s got that special touch that bears mentioning. There are also a lot of Cascade yarns at this store. Worth a stop for sure.

The ones I haven’t visited yet:

 

  1. Artfibers. It has come up in conversation a couple of times in the past few weeks that I need to stop into this Financial District store. I hadn’t known about it but then @ Futuregirlcraft told me where it was (look for the funky-font sign that just says “hilo” up in the air for this second-story shop. I have heard only good things about it but haven’t yet made it in there.
  2. Scrap. This actually isn’t a yarn store but instead is a sort of thrift store for artists that sometimes has yarn. I just love the idea of this, especially since our actual thrift stores here almost never have yarn and particularly because the entire store is just arts and crafts supplies that you can dig through, find your treasures and pay a low cost for. I haven’t been here yet but I have a date planned to go here in a couple of weeks.
  3. Urban Fauna Yarn Studio. I have heard absolutely nothing about this store, pero viene cuando hago una búsqueda de Google Maps para tiendas de hilo y tiene una sitio web que se ve interesante. Están unidas pesada, Creo que, pero al parecer conseguir hilo de tintoreros indie de todo el país, que me encanta. Tienen una fibra noche drop-in mensual en el que se invita al público a llevar el proyecto de fibra de su elección y oficio. Tal vez voy a comprobar que fuera!
