The string's been cut for in Castro Village.
After serving the community for more than 40 years, the shop, located at 3344 Village Dr. location closed its doors for good on July 21. Though the signage is still up, the store remains empty with a closed sign on the door.
According to a message posted on the store's website, Adela's Yarn is expected to move to a new location, which has yet to be announced.
Adela's Yarn offered knitters of all skill levels standard and unique yarn — some being handpainted — along with needles, patterns, accessories, lessons and advice.
