In addition to having an amazing selection of beautiful wool, the ladies are always extremely helpful. They have vast knowledge and experience and have helped me with tricky techniques many times. There are always knitted items in the shop that tempt you to make something interesting. I've attended a couple of workshops, which were excellent.

I dropped into This Is Knit’s attractive store in the Powerscourt Centre to buy some Hedgehog Fibers yarn for a friend. Hedgehog Fibers don’t have a retail outlet in Cork, and even though their yarn can be found in almost 200 places worldwide, it looks like This Is Knit is their sole outlet in Ireland. The lady who helped me... More

I originally contacted the shop to see if there were hotels nearby and Lisa gave me several options ( we stayed at the Parliment within walking distance). Gorgeous yarn and they're shipping it home. What sets this shop apart from the hundreds I've visited is how well it is laid out and how they stock enough to actually get enough... More

I shopped here today and found several yarns unique to Ireland, which is what I wanted to find. Owner was very helpful and printed a few patterns for me. Also, several cafes in the same market which are delightful. Definitely worth a visit!

I was with a group of people taking a tour of historical sites and quilt stores. A few of the group wanted yarn. One lady found this store and about half of us went in to purchase something. Great staff, very welcoming, great color selection, great prices and lots of patterns.

Popped in here on our last day to get 'something Irish' as a souvenir. The LOVELY lady at the counter talked me through the locally dyed and Irish wool options and I left with some absolute goodies. Highly recommended.
