This yarn shop has been in business for awhile. Expect to find a staff that really knows their stuff. The shop is located a mile or so over the district line in Bethesda. There is a bus you can take from the Friendship Heights Metro Station. Just make sure you tell the driver where you're going because it's very much suburbia in the sense that the stops are few and far between. The quality and quantity of their product is staggering. Beautiful colors lit with jewel lamps. They advertise that they have their own line of patterns. Think Cosby sweaters updated for the nineties. I guess they are some sort of motif sweaters? Most of the time their place is totally empty of people due to the location I guess. They are nearby the Organic Grocery Store on River Road. Ridgefield is the cross street that takes you over to the Giant grocery store and the yarn shop is upstairs in that odd little two story round mall. It's also on the same block as that nursery. The one that has two branches.
