11 Best Places to Buy Yarn Online – Crochet and Knit

I cannot remember the last time I actually went to buy yarn in a store. Wondering where to buy yarn online? I am always looking for the best places to buy yarn online.

Looking at yarn in person is my favorite but the closest place to buy is at least a half hour each way. Even before the pandemic, I bought a lot of my yarn online.

Now I buy all of it from different online stores like Amazon.com, Joann.com, Herrschners.com and more.

I fine it hard to choose colors from online pictures. I have had some surprises in colors of yarn when they arrived, but for the most part, my purchases have been successful.

The best thing about buying yarn online is that I can see all the different colorways and kinds. I usually know they have it available and I will receive enough for my project.

Amazon.com is a great place to find yarn. There are lots of different varieties to buy yarnonline.

If you have a prime membership or choose items that are shipped from Amazon and purchase $25 or more you receive free shipping.

There are so other sellers that have free shipping to. You need to look at the shipping times though some of them are really long.

I don’t like Amazon.com for the prices sometimes because they can be double or more than what the yarn is sold in the stores or other online shops.

Some of the listings details of the yarn like the gauge, fiber and weight are hard to find.

I really dislike the search on Amazon.com. There will be all kinds of things that are not the brand or weight you want. Also, there is no easy way to find yarn by weight or gauge.

Even though there are things I don’t like about Amazon.com, it is still a great place to buy yarn on line, which is why I think it is one of the best
