  • Well, she didn't have the yardage listed.  Pretty though. 

    What about this?

    -Wool Classic 2-ply yarn- 100% organic merino.  This is fingering weight sock yarn.  Matches the brown and green Ooga Booga really well.

    Retails for $7.90 each skein.  This listing includes 5 brand new 1.75oz/50 grams skeins of yarn.  Length is approx  198 yards each. 2-3 needle size is suggested.

    I was thinking more for a YYMN listing.

  • What about doubling or tripling the strands?  I've done that crocheting w/ no probs.  I'm also trying to find cheap wool to start out on Stick out tongue  Lanolinizing would make them work for day wear, right?

  • i wouldn't go anything smaller than a 7 (needle).  it will take forever.  are you looking on craigslist or something?  Do you have a yarn/fiber store near you where you can see the stuff in person?
  • Spots.

    There's a yarn store about 45 minutes from here.  Don't. Wanna. Drive.
