There's a wonderful wool shop just near les Halles, La Droguerie, 9 rue du Jour, 75001 Paris.

I also went to a nice wool shop in the Marais, but I'm afraid I can't remember the precise location. Perhaps some of our Marais-aphiles can help.

Enjoy! France still has excellent wool shops which I'm finding increasingly hard to find in the UK.

La Droguerie also has an area at Le Bon Marche.

There is yarn also at Printemps and at Modes et Traveaux on rue de la Pepiniere near Gare Saint Lazare.

There is also a little shop in Montmartre on the right of that popular art museum down there. I can go but cannot tell you the street. It is up from the Marche Saint Pierre. Maybe it is called Chamaille ?

If you poke around that whole area of Reine/Marche Saint Pierre, you will find all kinds of interesting stores for buttons, yarns, etc.

Thank You, that is most helpful, maybe I should learn the phrase "Can you direct me to the local yarn shop ! " :)

Printemps and Galleries L have taken out their needlework depts to be no more. Bon Marche on the left bank has a very nice dept. Just gorgeous yarns. If you go there, get Sevres Bablyone metro stop. Walk across the little park. Do not take the gate to your right, take the gate to your left out of the park. Go into Bon Marche entrance on that left side. The escalator there goes up to the floor with the needlework stuff. The one on the right does not.
