Craftsy currently ships to the USA and Canada only, but they should have International shipping options… supposedly soon. Still waiting!
There are tons of yarns available at Craftsy right now – too many to list them all! Lots of great luxury and novelty yarns, such as Fyberspates Faery Wings Yarn and Fiesta Yarns Gracie’s Lace Yarn, as well as bargains on Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. I'm also drooling over the Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic Aran Yarn. They're running low on many of the deeply discounted selection, but there are still lots of choices. This is a great way to try those yarns you can’t get without a local yarn store, and snag a deal on old favorites!
