Yippee, at long last a list of yarn stores in Israel, and the knowledge that there truly exists several stores that look like you'd find around the world.......stocked from head to toe in yarn and run by yarn lovers! Didn't know whether such a thing existed in Israel, and now I know that with some effort I don't have to settle for making things from the really cheapo polyester yarns available to me in my little town in the North.
This information came about thanks to two different readers who this week asked me about yarn stores in Israel. Don't know why I never thought to google it, didn't think there would be info in English, but I was wrong!
So here you are dear yarn lovers:
- A nice list of yarn stores in chart form, from wrapped troubles
- A second list of yarn stores in list form on angelfire
And after a brief perusal of the information, for starters, I found information about at least two of the stores that will satisfy most of our yarn needs! Not that either store is close to me, but on my next trip I'll know where to go!
- In Raanana, theres a store called gourmet yarn shop
- In Tel Aviv there's a store called Ha Tachana, and for a photo of the storefront and a little info in English, take a look here.
If any of you know of yarn stores that are well stocked beyond the standard polyester yarns, and are more than just a corner in a sewing shop, or women's clothing store (which is what I have access to) please do let us know!
