Im looking for a few good online yarn shops in the EU which have a wide selection of decently priced yarn and needles and ship EU wide... Google failed me.

Does anyone have any favorites they wish to share?

Because I'm not familiar with most EU brands of yarn only US, good descriptions, accurate colors/photos are really helpful

thanks

Here's the ones I like
http://www.colinette.com/ - just adore this one - really funky great wools
http://www.21stcenturyyarns.com - same here really but this is a shop - the other is the actual make/brand.
Hope this helps.

Come visit me, in a year or so, and bring your boy. Colinette is very close to a steam railway

www.kangaroo.uk.com
www.newlanarkshop.co.uk - slightly itchy, great value.
www.texere.co.uk - cheap.
www.getknitted.com - lots of US brands.
www.garnstudio.com

There's loads of good indie dyers around. Have you tried ravelry, though?

eta; forgot
www.bluefaced.com
and his partner in crime,
www.laughinghens.co.uk (or it could be com, I don't remember.) Their BFL aran is scrumptious.
