Hello Fellow Crocheters! :) I'm Ayesha from Abu Dhabi, and i love, love, love crocheting!
My mum introduced me to this craft 3 years ago and I haven't been able to put my hook down since. The only problem is that I haven't been able to find the right type of yarn here. I am looking for medium-worsted weight yarn(size 4), like the lovely bundles I see on the Red Heart and Lion Brand websites, but all I've found are light weight yarn-size 2. Can anyone guide me to where I can shop for such yarn around here or how I can make use of what I have to get to a size 4? Usually doubling up the yarn gets a little messy and too stiff for me to work with. Looking forward to hearing for you lovely people. Happy Crocheting!
When I have trouble finding the yarn I want or the correct quantity for a project locally I tend to order it on line. There are tons of web sites that you can order from but two of my favorite ones are ebay.com and http://www.iceyarns.com/. Ice yarns carry a huge selection of colors, fibers, sizes, etc. I hope this helps.
I just recently moved to UAE and have been trying to find crochet yarn here too, I found some 2ply at Daisao. Have you tried CraftLand in Dubai? I have not yet been there myself but the gallery on their website shows a wide array of yarn www.mycraftland.com
Have you considered shopping online? Many of the larger companies will ship internationally.
Or, if you prefer to shop for specialty type yarns, why not look at Etsy.com in the supplies section? Each Etsy shop is run by an independent person and most will ship internationally. I've shipped some of my yarns to every continent and have met some amazing people worldwide!

Your forum is absolutely fantastic as the are lots of great information. I really appreciate the kind of topics you post here.
I guess there are many online stores which are simply selling products in really very low price, I have tried many times. You should also go with those web stores. If you buy in bulk then you can also get special discount. It will really help you. Have a good one. Best regards.
