As more and more jurisdictions close all physical non-essential businesses due to Covid-19, knitting supplies are hard to find. Knitters and people who want to learn to knit, may find themselves with lots of time on their hands but in need of knitting supplies. They won’t be able to go to their LYS (Local Yarn Store) or their big box craft store. Even many online stores have closed their distribution departments during the crisis.
This List is Based on Recommendations
This post will get updated regularly during the crisis with independent yarn and other knitting suppliers (spinners, dyers, knitting needle producers, etc) that are still open for business during all the shut-downs. These are almost all recommendations from others.
If laws in your area prohibit ordering this way, please follow those laws. I am not suggesting anyone break lockdown. Some jurisdictions allow shipping of non-essential goods at this time, but that may change. Please be safe, healthy and law-abiding!
If you are a supplier that is still shipping or otherwise open, please fill out the Knitting Supplies During Covid-19 information form so I can include you.
I have not vetted most of these providers, nor will I be keeping tabs to see if they continue operating as things move forward. I have asked each supplier to me up to date and will update with information they send.. If you find that the situation has changed with any of these providers, please use the Contact Us page to let me know.
