Would you buy imported yarn if it was available?

Lets test the waters...

After scouring any and all wool shops around I have been left wanting more. So! I've contacted yarn manufacturers like Rowan etc to find out about stocking their yarns. I obviously need to know if there are other local knitters that have the same needs that I do however. Yes, granted, there are some locally produced natural fiber yarns available, but still.. the variety is small.  I want to be able to use gorgeous yarns like Rowan etc.

So should I start a web based "store" where you can choose yarns from catalogues and have it delivered to you directly within a day or two - and be able to pay in local currency..will you be interested? I'm thinking of becoming a stockist and ordering some stock and supply it locally. Also..which yarns?? hmmm...defenitely Rowan .... I love the Debbie Bliss range of yarns... Any other suggestions??

Anyway... its an idea being birthed here... I would LOVE your feedback and ideas!!!

Hi Lynne :)
There is a shop in SA that keeps Rowan yarns , but they are really pricey, so i just order from, and because you are outside of the UK, you have the VAT deducted , and they have one postage fee, so it works out a heck of a lot less expensive than buying them here...however, because i LOVE Rowan yarns, if you are starting a yarn shop, I will be there for sure...other brands I would love are Koigu, Wollmeise,Cascade, Debbie Bliss, Fyberspates.
Love all your Pinterest boards...have probably pinned more of them than anyone else you have as a follower :)
Have a good evening!
