knit 1, purl 2...

Purl and Purl Patchwork are two of my favorite little hole-in-the-wall yarn and craft stores in NYC. It has such a small town feel, but with big city selection and variety. As you can see in some of the pictures below, the stores have entire walls of luxurious yarns and fabric in their respective stores. They also carry, from what I can find, mostly natural fabrics and fibers! So they've got a lot of eco-friendly yarns such as bamboo and organic cotton, and organic fabrics as well. They also have an extensive collection of Liberty of London prints, which I'm dying to check out in person. I've never purchased anything from here, as the times I've visited were only window shopping days, but from the few times I've been in the stores, the staff was always friendly and helpful, and tried to ensure their customers had a quality experience!

If you're in the city, Purl and Purl Patchwork are located in SoHo, at 137 and 147 Sullivan St. respectively.
