Where to buy yarn?

Recommended Posts

It depends on the yarn.. wool is very expensive, it is all imported and hard to find, acrylic is available without a problem. You can buy wool from Mexico state but it is not merino wool .. nothing like the wool we know in the States or Europe.   This said I work with a man who teaches natural dyes and weaving with wool. He buy the wool from Mexico where there is a supply of wool from Argentinan sheep.  You can also buy from importers wool from AUstralia, Peru and India but it is all very expensive, Better bring your own..

a little store on the west side of the main street in Chapala.  It starts with a "M"  Merc......something.  Ive been there many times.  They have all sorts of sewing things.  I think it is a black store.  Just look for one that starts with an "M"....lol....sorry I cant be of any more help.  I go to chapala about 3 times a day so next time Im there I will notice more details.

Fabric stores like Parasina carry yarn. Whether it's the type of yarn your wife wants or not I couldn't say, she'd have to have a look.

This is all acrylic.

The fabric district, Sta. Teresita in GDL, and a number of shops in historic Centro GDL have loads of yarn. That said, everytime I go to the US, I bring back a lot of yarn from JoAnn's where I can use a coupon to get better deals.
