While in Reno visiting family, I got a chance to go to Jimmy Beans Wool. I have been ordering yarn/wool from them for several years and have loved them from afar! The store is a great wool store; such a treat as so many wool stores have disappeared in recent years. They have a lot of beautiful wool, supplies and... More

I'm not a knitter but had out of town guests that wanted to go. I enjoyed the trip. The retail shop has beautiful yarns and other items for sale. Great bargains back in the warehouse.

If my local store doesn't gave it, JBW is my go-to place. I especially like their mystery knit-a-longs, and the quick service.

This is my top place to order yarns and knitting supplies, if they aern't carried by my local shop. I especially like the wide range of colors of the MadelineTosh line, and the cute KALs. I've done two of them in the past year. If I'm ever in Nevada, I'm definitely making a visit!

We went on a quick tour of the warehouse! So much yarn! They had a lot of finished projects in the store to give you ideas. They had a great clearance sale going on that I took advantage of.

My wife loved this place. She is the knitter in our family. One of a kind items, unusual wools and colors. They mostly do mail order, but the store is a great place to browse in, plus the warehouse in the back

On the recommendation of a friend, I tried out this store a couple of years ago, and it's one of my primary sources. They always have a good selection, nice unique yarns that no one else carries (special Lorna's Laces colors every month), and have fast shipping. I order from them several times a year.

Being a 'yarnaholic', I shop in knitting stores worldwide. This is one of the best. I visited the bricks and mortar of the online store in Reno. Wow! There were numerous very knowledgable sales people who didn't hesitate to go the extra mile to help. They have an awesome inventory since the warehouse is attached. Don't get discouraged if it...
