Where to buy yarn and crochet essentials online
Faux fur poms, custom crochet hooks, crochet accessories - we love ‘em, we NEED ‘em - but where to find them? I get asked this question a lot when I post my free patterns, and I always try to have links to the products that I use in patterns in each post. BUT I know that it’s helpful to have that information all in one place, too. I have been on a mission lately to support other makers as much as I can, so this post will be a collection of my favorite crochet supplies and accessories from my favorite indie makers. I will only be sharing information about products I have personally used and loved. If you have your own product suggestion or if your are an indie maker, feel free to share that information below in the comments! I will also add to the list of artists and makers as I try new product - so bookmark this page or Pin It to keep up with crafters and makers I’m loving.
Faux Fur Poms
I have ordered pre-made faux fur poms from 3 different makers and have been impressed with all of them!
Maria’s Blue Crayon - A popular crochet blogger, Maria also finds time to make faux fur poms and sells them in her Etsy shop (seriously, she must be a super hero). She lists poms in her shop in a “shop update” style - so always check back to see what surprises she’s got in stock!
Threadhead Knits - If you want a one-stop-shop for all your faux fur pom needs, visit Lindsay from ThreadHeadKnits! She has tons (and I mean TONS) of different poms to choose from in colors, neutrals, and everything in between. You can order the poms in different sizes, too. Her poms are typically made to order - which means you should always be able to get the exact colors/sizes you want, but you will have to wait just a bit for her to make them before they ship ;) Well worth the wait - I promise!
DreLily Handmade: I’ve ordered two poms from Drea and I love them both! She has a nice selection of soft and neutral colors. Another thing that I love is that she sells bulk packs of faux fur poms. So if you make hats for craft fairs or need to stock up for the season - definitely check out her shop!
Custom Crochet Hooks
The Speckled Clay Boutique: Debi made my very first custom crochet hook and since then I have treated myself to a few more. I even wrote up a review of her shop if you want to check it out here.
The Clay Bean Company: The artist from The Clay Bean Company is PHENOMENAL! She has such adorable and well made custom clay crochet hooks. She updates her shop periodically so be sure to check back regularly or follow her on Instagram for shop update information!
Custom Stitch Markers
I’ll be honest, I don’t use stitch markers often, but when I do they better be cute 😉
SimplyServing: Lindsay makes some of the cutest polymer clay charms I’ve ever seen! She has such a huge variety to choose from and it always coming up with new seasonal and year round designs. I have 3 stitch markers from her and I love them all. I liked that I was able to select what kind of closure I wanted at checkout. She typically does shop updates every Saturday, and you can get sneak peeks of her new stuff coming on Instagram.
Hand Dyed Yarn
Hand dyed yarn is one of my favorite crochet related “treats” to buy for myself. Each dyer has such a unique style, and I have never ever been disappointed with any skein of hand dyed yarn. This year I have been publishing patterns monthly to feature different indie dyers, and also to provide you with some ideas on how to use just one hank of hand dyed yarn. Find those free crochet patterns here!
Handmade Home Fibers: If you know the blog of Sewrella, then you probably also recognize the name Handmade Home Fibers. Ashleigh and her husband dye up some truly stunning yarn and I have had the pleasure of working with it a few different times. They do shop updates that sell out FAST so be sure to follow them on Instagram for all the details. I used ‘Sushi Roll’ for the Love Bug Slouchy Hat.
