Loopy Mango.

If you have the good fortune of both being in NYC and being a knitter, then you probably already know about Purl. But just a few blocks away is a new knitting store called Loopy Mango.

Whereas Purl is prim and proper, Loopy Mango is more down home, earthy, and a little more relaxed–which is really refreshing. I really want to knit that striped Mila Mila dress (above right corner). And that giant yarn (below left) would make an amazing scarf! They have classes, knitting nights, and also sell things online.

I love that they hung a picture of a woman and her sheep. Good to remember, as with all things, where they come from!

Even if you’re not a knitter, this store has amazing jewelry, homewares, and clothing so I encourage you to stop in.

Loopy Mango: 78 Grand St., New York, NY 10013, 212 343 7425

  1. glad to have stumbled across your blog – i love reading experiences/observations of expats in foreign lands 🙂 i myself recently moved from toronto to delhi – and have just taken up crocheting (knitting is too hard!) so this post is especially fun. upon my return home hoping to make it to either of these shops and maybe even take a class!

  2. If I’m ever in the area, I will stop by, what a fun store!
