Since I have been on my travels from September 2016, I have not been able to buy any yarn (except in New Zealand), as the countries that I have visited so far, namely, Malaysia and Thailand are lacking in yarn shops. Lucky I brought along a stash of knitting yarn, enough to last a year I’m sure.
So in the first week of January 2017 I was in Hong Kong for a week. Now after doing some research online about knitting yarn stores in Hong Kong, I narrowed it down to one that I wanted to go and see. So walked down to Mong Kong in Kowloon from our hotel, about a 20 minute walk, only to find the right address for this knitting yarn store, but was disappointed to find an empty shop. Walked a few more blocks in and came across some markets and did see the following on a stall.
As it was all acrylic, did not make a purchase, but did love the bright colours. Walking further down this street I came across a store called Double Knit Yarn & Co.
Was dying to go in, so went up these not so good looking stairs, about 2 flights and came across a large knitting yarn store. I was amazed. I asked the lady behind the counter if she had any sock yarn, but they only had dark colours, so did not make a purchase in this case. Took some photo’s though as looks like that they had a wide variety of every kind of wool/acrylic you could imagine. A rare find and well worth it, if you are need of supplies from a knitting yarn store whilst in Hong Kong.
The address of this knitting yarn store is Double Knitting Yarn & Co, 179 Fa Yuen Street, Mongkok, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Happy knitting yarn shopping.
