Attention Knitters! Places to buy Yarn in Toronto

Knitters in Toronto can rejoice at the vast amount of yarns and knitting supplies that can be purchased all over our great city. Residents of just about every neighbourhood can find at least one awesome yarn shop within walking distance of their living room easy chairs. But it wasn’t always like this. Only in the last ten years has knitting become big business.

Last week’s article, Knitting Groups in Toronto showcased a handful prominent yarn stores that host weekly social gatherings, mostly on Tuesday nights. But in addition to the five retail outlets mentioned in that piece, there are many other shops worth listing.

About Rob Campbell 46 Articles
Rob Campbell went to film school and worked in the movie business for a decade, labouring behind the scenes in hundreds of productions as the reliable but annoying grip-with-a-script before finding a place penning online perturbations. Rob is just fascinated by technology and holds an idealistic, Utopian vision of the future. And yet he collects antiques and old photographs and just loves research and writing about the history of things... So you see in this dichotomy he dwells in constant amazement.
