No, laughing is not allowed. We take what we get.

And Desi, Vardhman does make fun fur and feathery types of yarns and I didn't know this either until J from Lucknow sent me some. There are colours, also, apparently. I have to confess *shamefacedly* that I've never knowingly used Indian wool, either. But it is available in northern cities in various qualities. Yarn snobbery, yarn stores, stash…a bit unreal, what?

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.

One thought on “Yarn stores in India

  1. Yeah, all this yarn snobbery is a bit much, but then this is serious winterland, so you do have a lot of options. It doesn’t help to get your knickers in a twist over merino vs. shetland if you’re in 40 degree c. heat! I did buy Vardhaman pure wool in Delhi once, fingering weight. It wasn’t supposed to felt, but my socks grew progressively tighter!
    In Tulshibag market in Pune (right behind the Tulshibag Ganpati) is a famous wool store called Samrat Wool Stores. They have gorgeous colours. I have bought lots from there. Also circular needles and other notions. Thanks for the list! I am going to check out some in Delhi next time I visit.
