Living in a fairly small city means that there are very few options for yarn shopping so for a long time now I have been looking for good online shopping options. Many people have recommended various sites but, as a Canadian, the issue always came down to the horrendous exchange rate when converting from US dollars to Canadian! Even something as simple as Patons Astra becomes ridiculously expensive when buying from a US site. With the exchange, Astra would cost me $5.35 Cdn from Yarnspirations and other US sites. When I buy it in Canada or from a Canadian site, it is only $3.49!!! There is something very wrong about this! I design and knit a lot of small holiday ornaments using Astra, so this yarn is a definite favourite.
I have found the perfect solution in YarnCanada.ca. Not only is the selection absolutely superb, incorporating almost 40 brands with outstanding colour, weight, and type options, but the ability to sort by any of these selections makes for a very satisfying shopping experience. YarnCanada also offers the best pricing I have found anywhere!
The yarn listings include clear images with plenty of details regarding gauge and content, and the ability to create multiple wish lists is an added bonus. I often have different projects planned for the future and creating a wish list of possible yarn options for each is a very useful feature.
My order was processed extremely quickly, and shipped the next business day, as promised. A tracking number was provided and I was able to track my order right up to the delivery at my door which was a full two days earlier than expected and free shipping for orders over $35.00 dollars!!!
YarnCanada is most certainly my yarn store of choice and I am already planning my next order! I highly recommend this online store, thank you for the excellent shopping experience!
