Knitting yarns and knitting yarn sales are very popular in Budapest, where you could even see some guerrilla knitting actions (you know, when public benches and lamp posts get a little knitting?). To learn the most important word: knitting yarn is FONAL (foh-nall) in Hungarian.
Let’s see some of the more popular knitting yarns stores, shops and outlets in Budapest, Hungary:
Fonal Diszkont (Yarn Discount): 2 min walk from the Budapest Opera House, sells Hungarian and international yarns for knitting and crocheting. Located at the corner of Paulay Ede Street and Szekely Mihaly Street
Barka Fonal: a short walk from the Andrassy Avenue and Oktogon square, Barka Fonal shop sells a wide range of knitting yarns. Do touch the yarns to get a feel for them. Address: District VI in Budapest, at 1 Teréz körút Street, 1st floor
Kezimunka Birodalom: off the city center, the Handcraft Empire, as you can expect with tons of knitting yarns. Address: Budapest IV., Árpád út 39.
