Anytime you start a new hobby or passion, such as knitting or crochet, one of the first things you do is look for a local yarn store or craft store to get advice and see what yarns are available. If there's a yarn store near you, that's great!  Hopefully they will be able to help you get started and find the yarn you are looking for. 

If you are searching for a good yarn store and are not able to find one near you, we understand and are here to help. We have hundreds of free knitting and crochet video tutorials and articles, a weekly Technique Tuesday show on Facebook Live, where you can watch and participate with thousands of other knitters and a private VIP Facebook group dedicated to the love of knitting and crochet!
