This thread has me . Before I get carried away, has anyone used the worsted weight wool yarn at Peace Fleece? I'm thinking of using it to make soaker pants, but don't want to order a bunch if it's scratchy. I just the colors, though!

If noone else has used it, and you decide to go ahead and order, please report back. I'm dying to know!

Went to the local yarn store and bought two giant hanks of hand dyed wool colorways and one of them was kind of tangled and wouldn't work on the swift -- so they gave it to me for free! Woo wee! I think each hank is big enough to make a pair of longies. So, I walked out with three all together, which should keep me busy for a while.

oh good grief what is this? The yarn ho tribe?

Why doesn't someone make up a nice master document of yarn sources so we can sticky it or make a page up and stick it on karen's soaker page or somewhere?

It is a great yarn for soakers, especially if you are a beginner. You don't want to drop $$$ on some yarn and then want to cry when you have to pull it out 30 times, lol. Plus, it dyes up so easily.
