This is near Sena Bhavan. If you walk towards Mahim from Sena Bhavan on the Main Road, it is on the the left side a little after Camlin Studio past Raja Rani Travels. He sometimes has good collection of variety of yarn.
2- This shop is in the Nadco market Andheri west just opp. the railway station. Here you will get the regular acrylic and the silky threads.
Then in Malad west opposite the railway station in there is Natraj Market. Here you will get variety of yarn and all the doodads at wholesale price. Worth checking these places for yarns but it is a jackpot as sometimes they don’t have much in stock. (Thanks to Sandhya for the info).

  1. Hello Mrs Fife,
    You recently sent an entry into HilltopYarn.blogspot.com for a dishcloth contest. The yarn store is in Seattle, Washington U.S.A. I work there and will be traveling to India for 4 weeks. I leave tomorrow- in 24 hours!- Thursday, Oct 19. I was wondering where you live and if you would like to do a yarn exchange? My travel pack will be small, but I will always find room for yarn!
    I am so happy to have the list of all the Yarn Shops in India, it will be so much fun. If you are interested, send me an email.
    Happy Knitting!
    from,
    Betsy
