In the knitting and spinning world, fibre space is well-known as being a place a wide variety of supplies, including more than six different needle and crochet hook lines — always in stock, and in every size imaginable. Their needle wall is a repurposed vintage mail sorter, an ingenious way to organize so many different products.
