Spiral Cowls for everyone!

Love these tweedy yarns and the great, adaptable pattern! Especially love the customer service that Loop provides -- from central PA, this is my Philly-based LYS! I ordered yarn for four cowls and added a note that it would be great if the could be caked for me - and was so delighted to open the package and find cakes of yarn ready to knit. Such a great gift idea and easy (with the assistance of Loop)! Thank you very much!

I'm so glad we could help you with your holiday knitting! Thanks for your review! -Laura

Wonderful Service!!

I ordered some yarn online from Loops, to knit a project. The yarn arrived quickly, and even had tracking so I knew the delivery date. They included a personalized handwritten thank you note. Such a nice experience!!

I'm so glad to hear you were happy with your experience! Enjoy your new yarn + thanks for your review! -Laura

Excellent service for extraordinary yarn

Thanks so much to Loop for the help and speedy service getting my BT Shelter to me lickety split. I've used Shelter for a few projects and it is simply lovely. It starts off as a little rough, but as you knit it, it softens right up and after blocking, it is submlime! Great for structured garments!

I'm so pleased to hear that one of our favorites is turning into one of yours as well! Thanks for your review! -Laura
