Wool or yarn shops

Hi

I'm a very keen knitter and also enjoy crochet. We will be in Santiago for 5 days towards the end of April. I would love to buy some local wool/yarn for knitting with. Is there any particular area where I should go to buy wool? Can anyone recommend wool shops?

One place you could try is the Feria de Artesania at Los Dominicos. It is located at the eastern terminal of Linea 1 of the metro.

Is it more artesanal wool you are looking for? There is a place called La Nativa which may be what you are looking for. They do hand dying with natural dyes. I would contact them first to see if they have a good selection.

I know Lanabel has a couple of shops in Santiago where they sell some artesanal lambswool and alpaca wool for knitting, but I imagine most of the rest of their products are just more ordinary imported wool.

Thanks for your help, bought some wool today in Peru. Would love to get more but space in my suitcase is limited!
