Could anyone possibly provide me with a name of a good yarn mail order company? Thanks!

The best place I have found on line is 'Country Yarns' I have trouble finding Cabelia thread in different colors, and she has the best and cheapest prices available. Internet address is www.countryyarns.com Hope this helps.

I sell wool yarn from my sheep. Check out my farm and our wool at www.sheepyvalley.com .

Being interested in the same question, I checked out the site Bear suggested but they only sell books and paphlets and thread...no yarn! Wonder why they call it country "yarn"???

I've found some good web sites with online catalogs, but I was looking for a paper catalog. Years ago I used to order from a OH GOSH! I just remembered the name, Hershners! Lo and behold, they're still there, the url is: http://www.herrschners.com Well, I guess I'll order their catalog and see how much they've changed.

One place to watch for very reasonably priced yarn is Ebay. Go to the Toys and Hobbies section and keep choosing Hobbies until you find Needlecraft. Then choose Knitting or Crochet. Lots of very interesting yarn there!

You might want to check out Lion Brand Yarns. They have some really beautiful colors, and you can order over the internet. If you do a search on google or one of the other engines, you can come up with all sorts of sites that have yarn for sale. Good luck.

Just remember that if the company (Lion Brands is a very good example, they are in Walmart, Fred Meyer, and other places) sells product in your state, they will probably have to collect sales tax from you, not only on the product, but perhaps also on the shipping as well. Sometimes if you ask nicely and are willing to pay half up-front (sometimes not necessary, depends upon the store) the store can order the specific yarn for you and call when it is ready.
