Soon I have to place an order online for some knitting supplies and, I was hoping that some of you can give me some input as to the better sites to order from.
I live in Canada but, I've ordered supplies from both the U.S. & Canada in the past.
But I have a few questions, in the hopes that you can help me out.
I've seen so many beautiful FO's that others have made, using Noro yarns. I just LOVE
their colours. I've been thinking (if I can afford it) of possibly making some hats, mittens & scarfs as Xmas gifts this year, using Noro yarns.
But, I've heard they're quite pricey. #1-
I was wondering whether there is any Noro yarn that is a medium worsted weight wool
(for warmth) but, that is 100% machine washable & dryable?
And if so, would you happen to know the name of it? It has to be a washable wool but, I really prefer the Noro. Unless there is another brand that's similar to their beautiful colours, that's also a med. worsted weight washable wool? #2-
With this order, I plan on adding some other items to the list. Mainly the two largest sized tips for the Denise Interchangeable Needle Set. So would anybody know where there is a good site that has fairly reasonable prices, where I could purchase the Noro yarns and
the Denise Needle tips? The U.S. site shouldn't charge a customs fee that I've heard other people complain about.
On my last order recently from a U.S. site, there was no customs fee.
I'd like it to be a site that has reasonable shipping rates using Canada Post and, be able to order other items as well that aren't listed above.
Items such as: 3mm and 4mm teddy bear safety eyes, stitch markers (some removable because I'm tired of using scrap yarn pieces.
), a tassel maker and maybe, some sock yarn.
It would be great to find a site that sells all of that but, the Noro yarn
and the Denise tips
are most important. Could anybody suggest a site that has great prices for both of those items, decent shipping charges and, delivery is actually when they say it is going to be? No hidden charges or fees. What you pay at checkout, and that's all. No surprises later.
If it's a Cdn. site, I prefer it's not in QC., otherwise I'm also charged the P.S.T.
I look forward to your recommendations and hearing about any experiences that you've had, with ordering from any online knitting supply places.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and, hopefully you'll be able to help me out.
Happy Knitting all!
