Following MMario's info regarding a website selling a great variety of yarn from Turkey, RickeScott and I decided to investigate here in Istanbul. We decided to go to the most likely source of the yarn, the Wool Bazaar, behind the Spice Bazaar in Eminunu.
We walked the streets in search of the entrance to the Wool Bazaar (first pic)
We went in ... and scoured the area (second pic)
We went shop by shop on the ground floor, then went upstairs(third pic)
Ricke did most of the investigating ... has much better Turkish than me(fourth pic).
I succumbed first, I bought some AUSTRALIAN wool ... yes in Turkey... crazy... a weak moment... maybe I was feeling homesick or ...well... a lone Australian in this big country.... sob sob....Ricke again did the negotiating (fifth pic).
No luck on ground floor, so we headed upstairs... and no luck up there either(sixth and seventh pics).
