Lasts weeks we have been working to offer you the biggest news of this year at Miss Kits: the opening of a new yarn shop in Madrid city center, with all the quality and variety of yarn balls and skeins, so you can knit whatever you can imagine.
The yarn shop on the 31st of Atocha Street opened its doors for the first time a few minutes after 11 a.m., and we already had our first excited client waiting to see all the yarns. She was received with a welcome ovation by all Miss Kits team: Marta and Miguel (also known as Merino Feroz, attending you at Miss Kits Madrid from today), and Miss Kits Barcelona team, that traveled to Madrid for such a historic moment.
The shop was busy all day with friends that came on purpose for such occasion, but also with passerby on their way to or from Atocha and Puerta del Sol that were amazed by the impressive window with neon skeins from El Robledal de la Santa and Ohwow.Amsterdam project bags especially made for Miss Kits.
After long days of hard work to have everything ready to open this new yarn shop in Madrid, Marta and Miguel greeted all new knitters and crocheters that entered the shop with enthusiasm.
"We love Miss Kits philosophy and it fits perfectly with the one we have at Merino Feroz, so we are excited and expectant about this yarn adventure in the center of Madrid. Especially now that we finally see the light at the end of the tunnel of the renovations we had to make on the premises. It has been a series of catastrophic misfortunes: leaks, short-circuits, a small flood... and us anxious to see the walls covered in wool!!!", they told us.
The adventure of this new yarn shop in Madrid started to move behind the scenes in February. "Since we visited Miss Kits yarn store in Barcelona we always joked "When I grow up I want to be Miss Kits." So when Àlex and Vane proposed to us opening in Madrid we couldn't believe it. We may even cried a bit", they say. "We are especially excited for returning at street level and to deal with people. We love wool chatter! And we are delighted to be located in a neighborhood with a longtime tradition of yarn shops, one step away from the Plaza Mayor, Sol or the Barrio de las letras."
We asked Marta and Miguel what they found most interesting about this new yarn shop in Madrid: "A store like Miss Kits was much needed in the Madrid yarn scene, where there are hardly shops where you can buy hand-dyed skeins and even less of this size. More than 13 lineal meters of "wall of sin" 45 colors for each indie dyer! The best place in the capital for discovering those hand-dyed wonders that most of us have only seen on Instagram. It is like a yarn fair but available every day.
Although perhaps the most interesting thing that we have at Miss Kits Madrid is that the offer is not only limited to hand-dyed skeins, but we also have a wide variety of prices and qualities. We have made a selection so you can knit and crochet in a great variety of fibers, without forgetting our beloved merino. We have silk, bamboo, yak, linen, cotton, cashmere, mohair,... and we surely forget some important fiber. But seriously, there are so many yarns and such a variety of colors that this is a yarn paradise. It is very difficult to choose a single skein because you want to take them all!!!"
Miss Kits Madrid is a wide and luminous space where you can find indie dyed yarns from already known in the house dyers like Greta & the Fibers, Sóc una Troca!!!!, dLana, Feliz y punto, Tréliz, Encayarns, LITLG, Olann, Tôt le matin... as well as yarn balls from DROPS, Katia yarns, Rowan, a wide range of Schachenmayr Regia sock yarn qualities, Casasol cones,...
As a novelty, at Miss Kits Madrid, you can find Pascuali Filati Naturali. From this German brand specialized in 100% natural high-quality yarns, you can see and buy skeins of Pinta and Forest (100% natural sock yarns, without nylon, great for knitting socks but also perfect for knitting shawls and sweaters), and the yarn balls of Puno Winikunka, Suave, and Balayage, amazing qualities of alpaca, wool and cotton.
In several months we will also offer you knitting workshops and crochet courses in a quiet and relaxed place in this new yarn shop in Madrid city center. Sign up for the newsletter or follow us on social media and be the first to get all the news!
Miss Kits Madrid is at a short walk from Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. Whether you live in the capital or a tourist in the city, you can not miss a visit to this new yarn temple. After admiring the new and more impressive "sin wall" do not forget to take a selfie in front of it and post it on Instagram. All those who have not been there yet will be green of envy!
