As its name suggests (in Norwegian at least), Oslo Sy- og Servicesenter trades in sewing supplies, sewing machines and services related to the latter. However, the shop dedicates approximately half its floor space to yarn, of which there is a very decent selection.
Whether due to the lethargy brought on by an enormous lunch at Lille Saigon 1 or general exhaustion from looking at yarn (even Fleinhøy, it seems, can grow weary of wool), I was less enamoured of this shop than Grünerløkka Garn and Pickles. But don’t misunderstand me, dear reader! If you’re looking for straightforward, uncomplicated yarn, Oslo Sy- og Servicesenter will service your needs indeed.
