Long time no write, but here am I, ending my radio silence.
Recently, we’ve been on a trip to Istanbul (Turkey) and one absolutely unmissable spot for every crafter, especially crocheters and knitters, is a place in the heart of the Grand Bazaar called Kürkçü Han.
This is our fourth visit to Istanbul and every time I set foot into the han, I fell like Alice in Wonderland. The han is filled with mind blowing number of little shops selling everything a crafter would need, from haberdashery and all sorts of accessories, to yarn of all types and quality. While there are several big yarn shops on the ground floor, the second floor of it is exclusively reserved for yarn, and every shop will blow your mind. Literally. The incredible offer ranges from the thinnest (cotton, silk, acrylic) threads to wool and cashmere yarn.
Due to the recent inflation Turkey is facing, the yarn is way pricier than it was on our last visit. The good thing is the sellers often have discounts on different brands, so you might find some real gems and steals on those deals.
