Are you afraid of ordering yarn online because you need to see and feel it first?
Maybe you’ve tried before and it wasn’t the right color or even worse, the textured wasn’t what you expected. This has happened to me too! There are so many variables potentially working against us. Is our screen to bright? Too dim? Am I familiar with this yarn already or is it brand new?
I’ll be honest, I love the “thrill of the hunt” – going to a store like Joann’s or Michael’s not knowing what I’m going to find. You just can’t get the same tactile experience when ordering yarn online. But sometimes it’s something we need to do and today I’ll share five tips for ordering yarn online so you’re less disappointed or surprised when your package arrives.
Rather than have a sponsor for this episode, I thought it more fitting to share the online retailer where I place the majority of my yarn orders, Amazon.
My husband and I have a Prime account which means we get free 2-day shipping on Prime eligible items – including yarn!
If you have been wanting an Amazon Prime account, I think I have a win-win solution for you. Because I am an amazon affiliate, I have a free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime waiting for you! As an affiliate, I do earn a small commission for your signing up and that supports the show so thank you for that!
