Happened upon this lovely little shop as we drove through Belfast on a trip down the Maine coast. Found some fabulous Maine yarns to take back home to Oklahoma. The owner was very friendly and helpful, which was greatly appreciated - I felt very welcome.

Helen was wonderful. She was so excited to see what we were looking to create and was more than happy to help us design it. She was passionate about knitting and it showed. Highly recommend a trip to Belfast and visiting Helen.

If you are searching for the best quality yard, then this is the place to go. The colors are amazing and many are hand died from plants. All types of yarn are available at reasonable prices and the owner is very helpful with selections.
