Visiting Dublin?

Must visit local yarn shops in DUBLIN CITY CENTRE are:

This is Knit, Powerscourt Town Centre, South William St.
Proprietors Jacqui & Lisa have established a LYS (Local Yarn Shop) in the heart of Dublin’s city centre. This mother & daughter(s) – Lisa’s sister, Jenny has joined the family business, have definitely made this shop a shopping experience for the yarnista. Here you will find expert advice from their friendly staff to help you with your next knitting or crochet project from luxury brand yarns such as Louisa Harding, Debbie Bliss, and Malabrigo. If you’re looking for souvenir yarn or that extra special skein, staff at TIK will show you the latest offerings from Irish indie dyers, Dublin Dye Company, Hedge Hog Fibers and their own brand, TownHouse Yarns.


The Constant Knitter, 88 Francis Street (near St. Patrick’s Cathedral)

The Constant Knitter, voted one of the best shops in Ireland by The Irish Times in 2012, is located in Dublin’s Antique Quarter of Dublin and a short walk from St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Shop owner, Rosemary Murphy gives true meaning to a LYS as she, herself is local to area. Here you will find the popular yarn brands such as Katia, Rico, King Cole, Brooklyn Tweed, Schoppel-Wolle, Jamieson Yarns along with souvenir yarn from Studio Donegal, Cushendale Woollen Mill. Also, there is an array of Irish indie dyed yarns from Fibre Kitchen, Comeragh Yarns


Just outside of the city centre and definitely worth a visit:

Winnie’s Craft Cafe, 3 Woodbine Park,

Definitely, worth a trip out to Bootertown. This off the beaten track LYS has the best selection of Drops Garnstudio yarns. Don’t forgot to take a coffee and cake break in their cafe.


IN and around DUBLIN

Hickeys, Henry Street, Dublin 1

A fabric and haberdashery store. I consider this shop as a yarn convenience store. Here you will find yarn brands such as Tivoli, Sirdar, and King Cole. Also the Irish yarn brand, Studio Donegal’s Aran Tweed is available here. An ideal place for the knitter or crochetier looking for baby yarn.
