Places to buy yarn online using Paypal?
I'm not able to get out often to my LYS, and I don't do credit cards, so I'm looking for online shops or stores that sell yarn and take Paypal.

American sites are great, but Canadian sites would be wonderful too.

Does anyone know of any?

Thanks!

Little Knits accepts Paypal:

I don't know if they ship to Canada, but you can call their toll free number and find out. They are in Seattle.

I did try eBay, but it's really hard to narrow down all the stores.
Also, their shipping prices are often outrageously high, and it's difficult to find everything I need at one specific place, so I'd have to pay shipping for each item instead of a combined shipping price.

If you have the names of specific eBay stores, I'll check those, though!

On eBay, I like Julia's Yarn, Over the Rainbow, and NotJustYarns.

Here are a few eBay dealers that are a bit offbeat. They're all nice to deal with.

lesliep4819. Her store's name is Ewe-phoria. Nice prices on Noro. Individual balls often available. Excellent service.

lifes_an_expedition. Interesting yarns, imports and handpaints; plus a miscellanea of everything from Guatamalan fabrics to ethnic jewelry.

nana cindy. Mill ends and rejects of Mission Falls yarns, often on huge cones and alwakys dirt cheap.

sanfelipeysantiago. Handpainted pure merino from a South American coop. Lovely soft yarn, great prices.

I've heard these yarns come from the same mill as malbrigo and handpaintedyarn.com.

I searched and found these that say they accept Paypal. There may be more as well. Check their payment options to be sure.

I use ebay frequently, the shipping prices are not high if you purchase multiple skeins. When a seller shows a shipping price for a skein of yarn they almost always offer discounted shipping on more than one item. So, if the shipping cost listed is $2.50 for a skein multiple skeins are usually just the additional cost of postage.

There are always those who want to get "a little more" but I have found many who only charge the actual cost of shipping. You just have to ask them before you bid what the shipping for "X" number of skeins would be.

I love littleknits.com as well as elan.com. Both have great sales and good service. Littleknits does charge a bit more for shipping (even more than most ebay sellers) but their customer service is exceptional.
