We had a riot with them while they helped the experienced one in our group find yarn and needles for the beginner in our group, while the who-cares-about-knitting person in... More

If you like crafts and yarn, you will love this place! The selection includes all thicknesses and yarns I didn't know existed!

Felt a bit like stepping into a Diagon Alley store... More

My wife's hobby is spinning and weaving and we went into FiberWild! so she could look around. She bought several skeins of yarn for a variety of projects. the yarns are a variety of colors and types. What made the visit so much fun was the friendliness of the owners and talking to them.

This is a really interesting place to visit if you love fiber. They have a wide variety of quality fiber. Plan to spend some time to take in all they have to offer. The individuals working are extremely knowledgeable and most pleasant and helpful.

I'm a knitter....I have to wander into any yarn shop I find. And boy, am I glad I wandered into this one! The shop is FULL of wonderful yarns, a great selection! And the owner was so helpful without hovering. I only wish I lived closer so I could stop in more often.

If you an inexperienced or experienced knitter check this place out. Tons of patterns, colors and varieties of yarn, From cottons to wools, thin to thicks for scrunchy scarves. This is the place to be. Also they have kits to work from that are inexpensive. Had a lot of fun here.
