what our customers are saying...
8/13/2016 So happy with this website - ordered some Magnum Chunky - best price around - but they didn't have enough in matching lots - so they ordered and got me matched lots - very important because it was a gift blanket! A few extra days and they shipped perfectly matched skeins at no extra charge. Really love having a small boutique shop that takes care of their customers and understands knitters and crocheters. - Janice Simon *****
7/13/2016 Ordered some Addi Sock Rockets and was very pleased with the quick ship time, great communication, and cute packaging when they arrived! I went back shortly after placing that order to get a couple more, but one was out of stock. I came back a couple days later and they already had more- second order placed! Excited to get them! - jennifer K *****
Found this place this weekend. Have been in upstate new york a few times, for Sheep & Wool festivals, and a few other things, and had never seen, or heard, of Fabulous Yarns. This time, on our drive back from the antique motorcycle show and swap meet, my DH noticed a tiny road side advertising this store, and we figured, might as well check it out we don’t get here often. I am SO glad we did. Tiny little shop, tucked away on a quaint little street. Adorable from the outside. Show room is small, but so well organized and with such gorgeous, pretty, pettable yarns. The two women working there were both great, she checked in quickly and then gave us time to browse and investigate without feeling like we were a bother, or watching over our shoulder. I find that when I walk into a yarn shop, not looking like a “yarny”, I sometimes get treated poorly. And this particular day I was DEFINITELY dressed for an outdoor motorcycle show. However, they still treated me incredibly well. I found myself gravitating to all my old favorites, but they had SO many, really gorgeous yarns, that I had never gotten to touch or try before. I ended up talking myself into a GORGEOUS Art yarns shawl kit with amazing jewel tones. As well as a really amazing skein of Zen Garden serenity glitter sock. Anyway, this is your board, so I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir about what a spectacular place this is, but I was so impressed that I had to write a review somewhere, I hope this is ok. I will DEFINITELY be back, whenever I make it to the area. - Shannon (from the fabulousyarn.com facebook page) *****
5/24/2015 Super Experience! This was my very first time to purchase yarn online instead of in a knitting store. I believe from now on this way of purchasing my yarn, will be the way I will go. One thing I always disliked in a brick and mortar store, is that the yarn type or yarn colour a pattern calls for is NEVER available. One can get only sort of the yarn, and sort of the colour, but NEVER exactly what one needs - D *****

5/23/2015 On line chat was excellent to help me select the knitting needle set that is right for me. I really appreciated the expert advice and warm conversation. I also selected 3 skeins of lace yarn. When FabYarn found that they didn't have all three in the same dye lot, they sent an email right away and ask about shipping. I told them to hang on to the needles and wait for the yarn but I guess they did not like how long their supplier took because they sent the needles separately along with another email to tell me when to expect the yarn. WOW!! I've never had a company do such a good job communicating! It's OK to wait as long as you have information. Their shipping confirmations all come with a stamps,com tracking number so I knew exactly where my package was. Terrific service. - Joyce
5/22/2015 Not your grandma'so knitting store. Love the super bulky multicolored hand spun!
5/22/2015 The Live Chat was the selling point, because i was able to establish quickly that this delicious yarn was in fact in stock. It is what I have been wanting and the price was compelling for me. I knit SO much and this yarn is not easily found in my local yarn shops. The owner clearly curates her inventory beautifully.
5/22/2015 glorious, gorgeous, great
I order regularly and since my first orders in 2007 I have always gotten excellent service. That combined with extraordinary products and unequalled value has kept me coming back. Now they know my preferences and don't hesitate to question odd/perhaps mistaken choices based on my past orders, they correct my goofs. I can think of no other internet vendor I trust more or even communicate with - we're on a first name basis now. With regard to the recent order debacle where the box arrived empty I didn't have a moment of doubt that they'd take care of it. I went to the web site, as instructed, and opened an instant chat (which I'm not very good at) and I got Judy herownself. I took pic of box label & markings with iPhone, emailed it, and - ta da! Problem solved. Best web site, best service, best products and value, and best of all - colorful commentary and assistance from the very best people. SPD 3/15/2014

Absolutely, hands down the best yarn store online. My first order they shipped right away but UPS had some hangups (obviously that is not Fabulous Yarns fault) but I contacted them and asked if they could ship by USPS next order. Just got done ordering another large order, they remembered and did exactly as I asked plus it shipped the same day. Thank you for having the best customer service! Thank you for caring about your customers and making sure they are 100% satisfied. You've gained a "forever customer"!

I got my yarn yesterday and I'm in love! I'd been searching all over for a deal on the sari yarn and you had the best offers, gave a coupon and had very reasonable shipping. Also, I couldn't believe how fast it came. Thanks for a great shopping experience.

From Facebook Friend Amanda Miller:
Shopping here went flawlessly. I particularly appreciate the color descriptions of the madelinetosh merino light yarns since it is very hard to tell the true color because of monitor differences. Your site is easy to navigate and my order arrived in no time. And of course, your discounts are great! I will be buying my yarn here again. Thanks.
*we do almost all our own photography because we've found that the pictures provided by most yarn companies just don't do the yarn justice.
Hi and good afternoon.

Thank you! I just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful online shopping experiences I've had with Fabulous Yarn. Your selection of yarns, tools and gifts is excellent and everything I've ever ordered has arrived quickly and very nicely wrapped. I am especially appreciative of your low shipping rates! I usually place smaller orders and am very happy ordering from your website and paying a small shipping fee instead of using the gas to drive a few towns over to find a brick and mortar yarn shop.
