I have bought yarn from www.elann.com and www.knitpicks.com

Knitpicks has really nice yarn, for cheap.  I have bought the shine and the crayon for knitting baby blankets.  And, if you order over 30 dollars worth of yarn, the shipping is free!

I ordered some yarn from elann, and I like it also.

I've ordered from
onefineyarn.com    (this one is located in Calif.)
and
yarnfwd.com    (located in Canada)
Both will ship internationally.
I just love getting boxes of yarn in the mail, don't you?

Has anyone ever ordered from discountyarnsale.com?  The prices look good because you buy in bulk, but I was just wondering if anyone has experience with this site... one time I got scammed by a fake internet store so now I'm always suspicious when prices seem too good to be true.

I put in a vote for discountyarnsale.com

It's totally legit and I encourage you to purchase from them.  I didn't have any problems getting my Plymouth Galway for my Rogue Sweater.

Shipping was great.  I recieved my order in 12 days from the time I placed my order until the day it arrived at my door.  That was when the estimated time it took before it was shipped was 2-3 weeks...so I was pleased when it arrived that quickly. 

I will definately be buying from them again for my bulk yarn needs!  They seem to have a fairly good selection of colors too...even the odd colors that no one else seems to carry.  I had a hard time finding the color I needed (#130...it's a leafy green) and they were one of the few that had it I'd love to order some of their sock yarn cake thingies!

My top three faves are:
1. Knit Picks (I love the sock yarns)
2. Herrshner's (mainly because they have a good selection and a "wishlist" option, which comes in handy when someone wants to buy you a yarny gift.)
3. Webs (yarn.com) - good prices...good selection...fast shipping...DISCOUNTS!

If you are looking for yarn to dye... i do a lot of it, and I only order from 2 places.  www.wool2dyefor.com  and Stick Chick on etsy.  Dealing with both of them has been wonderful!!!!!!!!  I order superwash merino... and it is YUMMY!

Yay!  Thanks for the info about discountyarnsale.com.  It's like that dream where you go to Costco and they have aisles and aisles of yarn on gigantic spindles....  oh wait, am I the only one with that dream?

Another good Canadian site (although they ship to the US, too) is http://www.yarnbythebag.com/ - check out their $10/bag specials for some real buys.

I'm going to recommend Smileys as well - especially for sweaters and that kind of thing, the prices make it completely worthwhile.  Last time I ordered I ended up with a box that was about 3 feet square.  Then my boyfriend put me on restriction so I haven't been able to order from them in a while.  They have some Moda Dea yarns on there last time I looked too!
