Somebody told me that Crystal Palace Yarns had a page on Facebook and it got me to thinking what other yarn companies might be on Facebook too. I've been adding yarn companies to my friend list. It's a great way to stay updated on new yarn releases and patterns, plus the occasional content. Here's who I've found:
Lion Brand Yarns - With over 133,000 fans, Lion Brand Yarns is alive and well on Facebook.
Webs - One of the best online yarn companies has just over 3800 fans.
Sweet Georgia Yarns - A delicious handdyer with just over 350 fans.
Classic Elite Yarns - I always look for the Classic Elite ad at the back of the Interweave Knits magazine. There's something oddly reassuring about seeing their ads on the back of the magazine every issue, sort of like how you find the accessory of the month at the back of Vogue. Now I get reassured on Facebook.
Plymouth Yarns - Excellent contests on their Facebook page.
Yarn Market News - My secret source for yarn company gossip has good tips on upcoming yarns and knitting trends.
Three Irish Girls - There are some sock knitters with strong affinities for this yarn, at least 800 of them.
Dream in Color Yarn - I would love to get my hands on a sweater quantity of DIC's classy.
- Yarn sales
- Discounts on online knitting classes
- Cool knitting news alerts
