A little gem of a shop set on one of the best blocks in Manhattan, String offers a collection of yarns saturated with so much color and texture you'll be tempted to start knitting three projects at once. And if you're accompanying a knitter, but not one yourself, you'll want to sit down and take lessons right on the spot.
A vision of owner and passionate knitter Linda Morse, String elicits oohs and aahs the moment customers enter the warm and charming space.
More than a source for distinctive, high-quality yarns (excellently priced, by the way) String also shows sophisticated designs using Strings yarns. The collection includes sweaters for women and men, scarves, hats, and bags, as well as babies’ and children’s clothes and accessories.
Customized services further give String its panache. Lidia Karabinech, String's terrifically talented designer, will work closely with you to select the yarn and look for your style and lifestyle. You'll get a custom pattern and help and advice from the first stitch to the last seam. Linda's trained eye and excellent taste are always available to guide your selection.
If you don't have time or desire to knit a special piece on your own, String will do it for you. We also offer trunk shows featuring designers from around the world, creative knitting theme events, and private lessons on subjects from Beginning Knitting all the way up to Finishing. It's all pulled together professionally and stylishly in an intimate, relaxed atmosphere. You won't want to leave!
