European Yarn Shops

In Belfast the best places I know of to buy wool are Delaneys on the Springfield Road and Simpsons in the City Center. You can sometimes get fuzzy , aran and double knitting wool quite cheaply in the Pound Stores.

I'm not sure if its in all of them across Europe, but my Carrefour here in Belgium (a really large grocery store chain, along the lines of a Super Walmart in that they have groceries, clothes, electronis, appliances, toys etc, but nowhere near as nice or big as a S.W.!) has a small crafty type section. They don't carry much, but I've found Crochet thread, hooks, needles, and some acrylic yarns here along with other odds and ends for crafts.

I can locate some nice ones in Krakow. There is a great new store located in the Galeria Krakowska (mall) right behind the train station. (The store is on the lowest of the 3 levels.)

 

There are two really nice little "hole in the wall" shops on Karmelicka Street, just a few minutes' walk from the city center.

 

There is a good-sized store on the Maly Rynek, not far from the American consulate or the main square.

 

Someone told me when I introduced myself that they were coming to Krakow in July, so someone might need this information!

I find this is a very friendly place. I've recently started crochetting. I'm retired now and started selling wool yarns online. I kindly invite you to visit my site and have a look at handspun, handyed sheep yarns. I noticed you have some troubles to find adequate yarns, so I thought you might like mine. Best to you all, Ana
