Knitting Yarn Store in Hong Kong

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.
