Our fibre philosophy
Our community is one of makers – hand knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners. We are committed to providing our community with high quality, natural and unique materials. We have a carefully curated selection of yarn and fibre from US sources, unique international makers, hard to find hand dyers and more. Our priority is to support the small and independent operations in our industry, particularly those that are woman owned. You will find a wide selection yarns ranging from small boutique brands to wonderful “workhorse” yarns – all organized by gauge within the store.
Private Events & Custom Classes
Private events and classes are one of the unique aspects of fibre space™. If your schedule isn’t quite matching our regular group classes, you can create your own private, semi-private or custom group class. We offer our entire shop space or event area for rent for private knit & crochet events or parties as well! fibre space™ staff will also come to the venue of your choice. This is a memorable way to celebrate a baby or bridal shower, or to enjoy a night with friends! Learn more about our private events & custom classes!
Plan Your Visit
Old Town is located just outside our nation’s capital and Ronald Reagan National Airport and a jump across the river from National Harbor Resort. We are easily reached via the Metro (four blocks away) or water taxi, and our wonderful King Street trolley provides free access to shops located up and down King Street. Find us on block off King Street at 1319 Prince Street.
We have free and metered street parking available in our neighborhood. Visitors can find 2-3 hours of free or metered parking within a block of the shop. See our parking map for more details!
We are just four blocks east from the King Street stop. Here is our Metro travel tip: exit the station platform through the north end (not the main exit) for an easier path to our shop. Walk 4 blocks east on King St towards the waterfront, make a right at West Street. If you plan to take the free trolley, exit the Metro through the main exit and find the trolley out front.
Grab a seat on the free King Street trolley, which has stops from the King Street Metro to the Waterfront and everywhere in between. To locate us, exit the trolley at the Pyeton or Fayette Street stops. See more about the trolley here.
Bike or Stroller
We are located just a block from the city Bikeshare location on Commerce Street. Feel free to lock your bike outside our shop on the Prince Street side.
If you are coming with a stroller, strollers are also welcome in the store or you may park it outside. There is a wonderful children’s play area!
If you require an accessible entrance, call ahead to have us put out our portable ramp. There is one short step (brick height) at the front of the building.
