Yarn shops in and around Helsinki, Finland

What to do in Helsinki - Last update september 2019


Here you have a short list of some of the yarn shops in Finland. Enjoy!

Snurre: Ruoholahdenkatu 4, 00180 Helsinki

Yarn shop located right in the centre of the city. It has gained a steady following in Helsinki, so much so that they have lately moved to a bigger space. There is a huge selection of yarns; local and international.

Vihreä Vyyhti: Toinen linja 1, 00530 Helsinki

Yarn shop located close to Hakaniemi marketplace. This small shop offers yarns from all over the World, from New Zealand to Bolivia and from China to Germany.

Menita: Korkeavuorenkatu 20, 00120 Helsinki and Yläkartanontie 26, 02360 Espoo

Menita is in two locations. One of the shops is in Helsinki, and the other one is in Espoo. You will be able to find everything you want in both of them. However, the shop in Espoo is much bigger than the one in Helsinki but probably not so easily accessible by public transportation. The Espoo shop has a selection of weaving material and tools in their space downstairs.

Silmukka: Pinninkatu 25, 33100 Tampere
If you are visiting Tampere, I definitely recommend you to visit this small shop. They specialise in fingering weight yarn in the most amazing colors and textures. Their staff is very friendly and passionate about knitting.

Titityy: Cygnaeuksenkatu 2, 40100 Jyväskylä

Beautiful shop in Jyväskylä founded in 2006 as a webpage, it has grown into one of the most popular yarn shops in Finland. Apart from many other brands, they carry their own yarn brand Tukuwool. Tukuwool is spun and dyed in Finland.
