If you enjoyed my first post about crochet and knitting supplies in Manila, you will enjoy this post more! This is a collection of online stores and/or people that sells yarns and crochet and knitting supplies.
The best thing about online shopping is you get to shop for the things you need hassle-free and fast! You don’t have to go to an unknown place anymore, things will be delivered straight to your home! But do take care with online buying, because it’s so hassle-free you might overspend (like I do!)
Please note: I was not paid nor contacted by these stores. I just want to share what I found online. I have transacted with 1 or 2 of these stores and some I post here so I can keep track of them in case I need to purchase in the future.
Find out where to buy those gorgeous yarns above after the cut!

I met the owner online through Ravelry, ever since then I have been following her blog. She is now a craft blogger with a mission: to destash half of her stash. She first started posting her items on our Ravelry group and the crochet hooks and knitting needles were gone as soon as they were posted. I was lucky that I still got a hold of these DPNs below. I also ordered some Soutmaid Cotton, cabling needles and these balls of cotton thread from Rosario. Don’t you just love that color?
