I just returned from visiting my daughter in Austin. Of course while I was there I just HAD to go to a LYS
This place was probably twice the size of my LYS here in West Michigan and had an amazing selection of yarns. The name of the store is Hill Country Weavers and is close to downtown Austin. It's located in a house and the whole first floor is nothing but room after room of yarn. I bought some hand dyed merino yarn from Uraguay called Manos Maxima. Sooo if anyone is visiting Austin, or just passing through I highly recomend this place!
