A good friend of mine is a dedicated knitter, and asked if I could bring some artisanal wool yarn from Spain as souvenir. During my first part of the CF (till Boadilla), I never even had the time to explore the few cities (Pamplona, Logrono, Burgos) to find some store (merceria?). But in Santiago, I will have a few days, and will be very grateful for advice where to buy artisanal wool yarn there. Muchas Gracias!

I found this quote from another thread from 2016.
I am now in SdC and on Rua Nova there are two yarn shops! I spied some women lacemaking in one of them last night!
Santiago has quite a sizeable new town shopping area, in addition to the old town shops. No doubt you can find some.

There is one not far from the cathedral. one of the main roads out of the old town up the hill. Going towards the supermarket but i dont remember where exactly. I would just ask at the tourist office when you get there ...in fact it might be at the top of that very street ( to the left of the tourist office up the hill)

Brought a bamboo crochet hook from home and bought 2 balls of soft wool from a wool shop in Porto. Managed to find time to crochet a scarf on my last camino and finished it at airports and long flight home.

Just discovered that the Casa Bonita is closing up shop. :( So that won't be an option in May, unless a new yarn shop moves in.
