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.
