In my last Top 5 post, I talked about why I love online yarn shopping. Today I will share my favorite online yarn stores with you so you can check them out too!
Top 5 Online Yarn Stores (according to me)
Yarn.com is #1 on my list because of the huge variety of yarns they offer. Quality name brand yarns. Lace weight all the way up to super bulky. Needles and other notions too. Instead of free shipping, WEBS offer discounts based on how much you spend. So if I’m going to order from them, I prefer to make it a large order and save as much as I can! I could go on and on and on about how much I love them, but you should really just go and check them out if you haven’t shopped there yet!
2. Knit Picks
Second on my list is Knit Picks. They sell their own brand of yarns as well as needles and notions. I’ve tried several of the yarns and have for the most part been very happy with them. The quality is good and the prices even better! Orders over $50 get free shipping. Again, I like to save where I can, so I usually spend enough so I don’t pay for shipping too.
Carrying a selection of yarns, needles, etc. very similar to what I’d find at my nearest Michael’s or Jo-Anne Fabrics is Knitting Warehouse. The prices are also very good–especially their discount yarns.
Another site that carries only quality name brand yarns. Fabulous Yarn also offers discounts including an extra 5% off if you sign up for their emails (they send you a code). They also have free shipping if you spend over $75.
Although I haven’t actually bought any yarn from any Etsy sellers, over the past couple of years I have loved looking at the various hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns that are out there. There are several shops that have great ratings and I’d love to buy from them…I just haven’t yet! Note to self: my next yarn purchase should really be from an Etsy shop!
Are there other online yarn stores? Just do a Google search and you’ll see just how many there are! (Tons!) These just happen to be the ones I’ve enjoyed ordering from (or in the case of Etsy, doing a little window shopping).
