Where can I find Latch Hook pre-cut rug wool?

Hello Everyone!

Does anyone know where in Switzerland I can find Latch Hook wool? Ordering it from the U. S. is too expensive, and I do love this kind of hobby craft.

I have attached pictures to give you an idea of what I'm looking for.

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. :-)

Hya


this is called in german TEPPICHKNÜPFWOLLE and you should get them easily in a well stocked crafts shop ( maybe even large COOP DIY) i have also done a short google search , they are sold on ricardo and ebay and i also found two crafts shops one in Baar and one in Zug ( considering you live in cham) where they may be able to help you further..if you want to order over ricardo or ebay...the german word for the wool is Knüpfwolle.

HTH

I think this is the first time I've ever moved a post OUT of Off-Topic. Looking for something in Switzerland is on-topic - only difficulty is where is the best place for the Thread.

You are looking for help or a tip as to where you can find the wool - so let's try Help & Tips > Other/General.

Good luck in your search.

To Longbyt: Thanks for relocating my post. I had the hardest time deciding where to put it. ;-)

To EastEnders: Thanks for helping me with my search. I found that German word along with "Knüpfgarn", "Knüpfpackungen" and "Schnittpackung."

Googleing, I ran across some eBay and ricardo auctions, but they didn't have the colors I need. Some other sites only offered complete kits.

As you suggested, I will also check my local Coop and Migro DIY. However, during my search I did not run across any shops in the Baar/Zug area. Would you please tell me the names of the craft shops you found? I live in Cham.

Thanks again for your help.

EastEnders, I think I found the two shops (I'll also check them out):

Bastelshop-Baar Keller
Keller Caroline
Weststrasse 1, 6340 Baar

--- and ---

Bastelstube Zug
Gotthardstrasse 3, 6301 Zug

If these are not the two you know of, I would still appreciate their names. :-)
