Hi guys. I was just wondering what if any of ya'll have ever ordered off of If so, what were your opinions of the site? The reason that I ask is because I am thinking about ordering some yarn off their website to attempt to make my first pair of socks. The site seems to have some pretty good prices, so I'm definitely interested. I'm just a cautious buyer I suppose. Kinda looking for the catch lol. I've never ordered yarn offline before. I usually go to stores like hobby lobby or wally world, so this is a completely new experience for me. And if you have any better online stores let me know please. Thanks in advance!!!

I've never had a problem with elann and I've ordered a lot from them.
I also like for really nice yarns at discount.

I've never had a problem with them either.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

My first online order was from Elann & I was very happy. It's been my only experience with them.

I made my first purchas from Elann recently with no issues and the yarn I ordered is definitely really good quality. I am also ordering from the Full Bag Sale. Sometimes you get super good deals. It does vary but a bag contains about 10 50g balls. Yardage obviously varies depending on the material.
