Dressew still has a ton of yarn and a lot of is novelty, but they also have a lot of baby and regular acrylics, lots of cotton threads and yarn and some R2 yarns and R2 pattern books.

Anyone been to the Fibre/yarn place in Granville Island?
I can't remember the exact name, but it's right across from the market.

They weave tapestries and do all this cool stuff, and after they sell their extras.
Not the bets place to get LOTS of the same yarn, but it's an awesome place to get really unique yarn cause they hand-dye them all.

Definetly worth checking out.

Yes, they have some gorgeous yarn. Watch out though, they're not open Sundays and tend to close a little early other days. Worth checking out if you can make it though. I always end up spending money when I go.

They are really nice though and will talk to you about dying, weaving, felting and the like.

Is that the silk place? Near the Aquabus dock?  I peeked in a window one day (it was closed) and I almost peed when I saw the wall of silky goodness... I have yet to go in, I'm afraid I'd spend all my monies.

Is there any place for more 'unusual' products ?
For example you can get balls of raffia at dollar stores
Also there are braids and cord and metallic ribbon at Dressew
There's also a bit of thick paper yarn at a Dollar store (going east) from Macdonald on Broadway
Anything that comes in strips

Hello there, again.
I went to Home Hardware on Terminal today and bought some jute and sisal. Quite cheap I must say! Very happy
The sisal comes in heavy and medium weights.

Is there any good place to buy thinner synthetic yarns? I was at Michaels in North Van today and everything is medium weight.. It's quite thick. I need something close to two strands of sewing thread combined, or slightly thicker.
They had thinner yarn like this, for crochet, but it was 100% cotton  Undecided
