I know about all the fabric stores downtown but does anyone know if yarn can be purchased anywhere there as well?

The only place that I know of downtown that sells yarn is Moskatel's (Michael's) on San Julian near 7th...but again, since they are Michael's they have that type of yarn. You might want to check out www.smileysyarns.com they have a great deal of inexpensive yarns and some good stuff(they are in New York.)
Good Luck!

I know it is an old thread, but I am also wondering the same. My search just brought me to just one downtown store - Mexican Thread and Yarn Company near the Garment District (425 So. Los Angeles Street, LA), but how much I understand they sell just synthetic fiber yarn. The other one is mentioned Moskatel, that sells Michaels yarns.

Michael Levine's has a very nice yarn shop inside the store that sells the clothing-type fabrics on the east side of Maple, not the home decorator store, which is on the west side across the street. There are fewer and fewer yarn shops in LA and all of the discount stores closed years ago. I find the best deals online and concur with the other post that referred to Smiley Yarns.  They have incredible deals on quality yarns.
