About us

ILO means ‘joy’ in Finnish.
Joy in yarn. Joy in craft. Joy in community.

ILO Knitting Shop is an online store and local yarn shop located in Turku, Finland – a positively gorgeous & design-loving Nordic city in the southwest corner of Finland. We specialize in carefully curated yarn, as well as knitting accessories & gifts from Finland, the Nordics and beyond.

You will find us at Linnankatu 8, just one block from the Aurajoki river – the heart of the town running out towards the Baltic Sea as well as one of the world's most prolific & breath-taking archipelagos. Turku is truly a city full of life and beauty, and we are so excited to offer our stunning selection of yarn & fiber notions to all that visit us. We even have plenty of comfy seating, so bring your latest project and come knit with us anytime!

Whether traveling from afar or living right next door, we hope to see you all one day soon!
