    Default Looking for Bulky yarn!

    Can anyone tell me where is the best place to buy bulky yarn for crocheting?
    I have just started crocheting & I really like the bulky yarn look. I have only checked Walmart so far & there selection sucks. I was planning to check out Michael's tonight.

    I am also willing to buy online as long as it doesn't cost an arm & a leg for shipping.
    TIA

    Michael's is a good bet. There's also London Yarns in Hyde Park (LONDON YARNS) and a new yarn shop at the Western Fair Farmers Market, but they tend to sell more expensive yarns. Lovely selections though.

    I would say michaels or Lens mills. I just crocheted a blanket with chunky wool for a photo prop and it turned out great! Michaels has been having sales on wool lately or you could use the 40 percent coupon

    E-Tent | Yarn Factory Outlet The Yarn Factory Outlet is now online, and they are offering free shipping if you order over $50 up to January 20. The colours are limited, but the prices are amazing. If I didn't have a small yarn shop under my bed, I would be shopping.

    I personally boycott Len's Mills because of their treatment of a fellow LM regarding their purse. Won't darken their door and definitely not the London location.
