Sometimes I have noticed that Amazon will have similar yarn deals as Joann Fabrics. When I checked this week that seems to be the case! Since I still have my shopping tutorials in the works, I will highlight a few pros and cons of Amazon shopping here.
- Amazon has completely free shipping if you are a Prime Member (click here for a FREE 30-day trial). And even if you are not, there is a relatively low free shipping threshold to meet ($35)
- Yarn from Amazon comes shipped beautifully and quickly! They are each sent in an individual plastic bag, which I like to leave on until I am ready to use the yarn.
- Their color selection is usually fantastic! I have seen colors on Amazon that I have never seen in my local stores.
- A lot of times, yarn is an add on item. That means you have to purchase at least $25 dollars of merchandise for the order to ship.
- The colors of a certain yarn may not all be the same price.
- Dye lots are not guaranteed (though I have always been sent the same when I order multiple skeins)
That being said, check out how the Amazon prices stack up to Joann this week!
