...my LYS brought to me:
WoolAddicts Earth. Here is my shopowner's hot tip: this is the yarn you should have and keep ignoring. The blend of wool, alpaca and nylon makes it soft, warm, affordable, and easy-care (yes - you can machine wash on gentle!). This yarn is great for sweaters that call for that hard-to-fill niche of 3.5-4 sts/inch. It's also perfect for slipper socks, baby blankets (10 balls), hats (Kate, below, takes 2 balls), mittens, you name it!
