When I find a good deal, I like to share it with you all. As often as possible, I do like to patronize the small knit shops and keep them in business. However, there are times when I just can't afford good yarn from these shops. Especially if I have a large project or I am doing something crazy like knitting felted slippers for the entire family. Then I look at these sites:
www.knitpicks.com - lots of good wools, sock yarns, and a good assortment of colors. They also offer free shipping on orders of $50.00 and over.
http://www.thesheepshedstudio.com/ - this site has Brown Sheep yarn and mill ends of wool roving from Brown Sheep, among other things. I am impressed with their prices! For those of you who know Brown Sheep yarn, their "Lamb's Pride" yarn, both worsted weight and bulky weight, are only $3.00/skein.
http://www.paradisefibers.net/Discount-Yarn-mill-ends-s/125.htm - I'm just beginning to look through this one, but it does look promising!
When I find more, I'll keep you posted!!
