Anyone who is into crochet or knitting would know how it feels like to shop for yarn. We go nuts about it. hehe. It’s an addiction I tell you!
So the other day, I discovered an online store called Herrschners and realised that their international shipping rates aren’t too expensive! YAY FOR ME!
I bought a whole bunch of yarn online …. they carry popular and cheap brands like Lily’s Sugar & Cream, Caron Simply Soft, Bernat, TLC etc. I was like in yarn heaven. lol. I bought about 24 skeins of various cotton/cotton blend/acrylic yarn and it all came to about S$4.00 per skein … including shipping! That’s cheap if you ask me! because yarn is really expensive in Singapore. They took a couple of days to process my order and emailed to say that my box had been shipped and it arrived via UPS in 3 working days! Freakin’ fantastic!
I realized that they ship in standard size boxes …. so if the small box (like the one I had) is filled, they would automatically calculate the shipping for the next box size … which is a lot more expensive. So, if you want to shop at Herrschners, be sure to check the shipping rate when the box is almost filled. Even just 1 skein extra would make the price jump to the next shipping rate.
Check out my fabulous yarn. Love them!
There’s another online store I want to try called WEBS Yarn. I think the shipping cost is slightly more expensive than Herrschners but they carry different brands. I will try it some day because I want those cotton/cotton blend yarns which are so expensive in Singapore! lolol
