YDT Shop #4 – River Colors Studio
Stop #4 on the Yarn Discovery Tour took me to Cleveland’s west side. River Colors Studio is an amazing place. It’s enormous, with an astounding range of yarns. This picture doesn’t begin to convey how big the store is; there’s a whole additional room in the front.
I can always find what I’m looking for here. From high-end to lower priced yarns, with every kind of fiber and blend well represented, this is like Mecca for knitters. I found a sweater’s worth of Rowan Hemp Tweed, a yarn I’ve been excited to try. For stranding, there’s shelf after shelf of Jamieson’s Shetland 2-ply in scores of colors. I received excellent help from the staff in picking out colors for a hat I’d like to make.
There’s even a wall of heavier wool for stranded sweaters.
One of the things I love to do when going to River Colors Studio is visit the Blackbird Baking Company next door for wonderful baked goods. (I’m partial to their focaccia.)
