Favorite On-line Yarn Store
Hello all knitters!

After spending many hours searching for on-line knitting stores, I realized I ought to ask you all what your favorite ones are, and why, if you care to share.

It would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I like Kaleidoscope Yarns They have a good selection and what seem like good prices to me. My orders arrive pretty promptly and when they've had a question about my order, they're fun to email with. Not like emailing with the Customer Service Computer.

I really like Angelika's Yarn Store - wonderful customer service and reasonable (but not free) shipping. Here's the link.

I quite like the look of discountyarnsale.com - not ordered anything yet but the prices seem pretty reasonable

I like WEBS -- good sales and prices (www.yarn.com). I also like woolgirl (www.woolgirl.com) -- she has unusual yarns and features independent yarn makers and dyers. She wraps her 'sales' in nice paper and ribbon and includes little gifts inside. I have ordered online from several places and have never had a problem.

I second knitpicks. I also like http://yarnzilla.com/ and sometimes I find good deals from eBay stores too.

Yes. I'm still wanting to order from KnitPicks; just haven't had the right colors for what I wanted to make.

eBay is dangerous! Hard to pass up a really good deal on yarn, even if it's not in a color I could use right away . . . could easily end up with a huge stash perusing those eBay auctions!

I like www.yarnsale.com, but I am partial to Herrschners because it is a reasonably close-by craft superstore. (Ok, it is an hour drive away, but it doesn't bother me - I have only gone once anyway.)

I just found a great lys - I may not shop online again! teehee
