I have a few Russian patterns that i would love to make in the yarn recomended colours and i was wondering if anyone knew a site i could buy Russian yarn from, I am in Tasmania, Australia and cant find where to get the colours and yarns from.
Most of the yarns sold in Russia are originally from Turkey. You can buy them from hobiumyarns.com This is the online shop that operating from Turkey, might be cheaper than alternatives since the yarns are local. If you need specific brands you can send me post message I can check whether it is from Turkey.
PS: The web site I wrote belongs to big yarn manufacturer named Kartopu. I live in Turkey so I dont have experience with their international shipping performance. But I can tell that payments are secure and they have good customer services.
I have order yarn sets for crocheting dolls from "etsy.com/shop/knittlife" which is from St Peterburgs Russia and most of the yarn she uses is a yarn named YarnArt from etsy you can find the shop it's name is Fiscraftland, it ships world wide and is located in Lithuania (sorry I had to take the url out) just search the name from Etsy and it should bring the shop name up. Hope this helps you.

Oh, that is good to know! I have had to substitute the yarn many times and it appears we in the U.S. ...
I live in the US and I have used DMC pearl thread to substitute the only place that I can order that is from Herrschners online I can pick the colors and fine it fairly close. In US they don't have fine yarns, the very fine yarn is usually too high priced to make dolls and toys.
Oh, that is good to know! I have had to substitute the yarn many times and it appears we in the U.S. just don't have proper substitutes. I go through yarnsub to try to get yarn that is 'close enough', but I haven't been able to find many color choices. Are the shipping costs reasonable?
