- Jimmy Beans
WEBS offers a 20-25% discount off your total yarn order with minimum purchase of $60-&120. No free shipping offers usually. Great CLOSEOUT prices, and Grandpa’s Garage. I like rummaging thru their sale bins. Great customer service. Very responsive. Usually, no issues to contact them about, but when you have a question about your order, someone always responds within 24 hrs.
KnitPicks has best overall low prices on their yarns. They offer free shipping with minimum order. They’re known for excellent customer service
Jimmy Beans has a great variety of yarn! I’ve been very pleased with every order I’ve placed. I choose WEBS first, bit if they don’t have what I’m looking for, Jimmy Beans always does. I think JB carries more high end yarn.
I hate to say, I rarely purchase yarn from a brick-and-mortar yarn shop these days. Maybe a lone skein or two. It’s all about the prices. Especially in sweater quantity. But I know many many knitters prefer the touchy-feely experience of buying yarn “hands-on” at their LYS. There’s definitely something to be said for “seeing and feeling” your new yarn before plunking you’re money down!
I have been burned by a few yarn purchases where the color was way off what the website displayed in the color tile. Thankfully, a hank-size “burn”…not a sweater’s worth.
