A Call to Yarns  
(x-posted, sorry for the dupes for people on the other lists)

I have a problem. My LYS(s) SUCK. I used to live near a fabulous place but it's a little out of my reach since I moved and now I'm left with one nearby store with a limited (really) overpriced selection and downright rude owner.
I've thought about making a monthly (or something) trek down to my old LYS (I guess the abbreviation would just be YS in that case) ;) but barring that, I think the Internet is going to become my supplier.

My question is: for those web-savvy folks who do it, where do you go to get your yarn online? Pros and cons? I'd love to hear some experiences.


It's strange how I so readily buy most everything else online but yarn has been a total hang-up for me. :p

Appreciate your feedback! ♥

I always try and go to my local Walmart Supercenter. They have a pretty large arts and crafts department. But, if I need to buy specific colors online, I always go with a company called RedHeart. They make a wide variety of different yarns in all the colors you could possibly think of. I actually buy in bulk from them so I can make my crocheted goods for my Etsy store.
