does anyone else who lives in the uk look at peoples “yarn shopping” vlogs and just instantantly feel sad that theres nothing like that in the uk
IKR I’m a London gurl at heart and there’s is no Joanna or michaels or target
no, we need them i mean we do have hobbycraft but in my local one most of the yarn isnt like “plush yarn” which is what i want to buy
also this is rlly random but i thought ur pfp was a bunny but ive literally just realised its a cat with flowers on its head
Well, there is Hobium Yarn which sells Himalayan Dolphin (plush) yarn, there’s Lovecrafts which ships to almost everywhere in world, there’s Hobbi and they have Snuggles yarn (I waited for a sale),
Here in the US, we have a love/hate relationship with all those internet hauls.
Imagine the waste. And a lot of it is essentially plastic.
An influencer goes out once a week, or once a month and buys 20 skiens of yarn that they then have to decide if they are going to use or “donate” and if they use it, they generally make the 50th of something they have no intention of keeping, so that gets tossed or “donated” and they do it again over and over.
Same problem as with fast fashion. It all has to go somewhere.
ive never really thought of it like that before!
is hobium yarn in the uk or the us?
Oh yeh it’s quite hard to see but it is a cat with flowers on its head
According to the website, they are in Turkey, I had never heard of them before
Yes all the time though i do know joanns ships here
Yes, Turkey. So the yarns are made in Turkey and not China. I’m general, the ones made in Turkey are of better quality.
Ohhh, do they ship to the uk?
Do you just shop online then?
Yes, mostly. I go to the store with coupons and they have a sale.
thankyou ill look into their 25% off sale at the moment!
