I would like to crochet some longies and shorties for the new bean. I am torn between what yarn to use though. I would like to keep it relatively cost efficient, so while I would LOVE some of those pricey hand dyed deals, I just can't afford it right now. I am looking at Blackberry Ridge, KnitPicks Merino or Wool of the Andes, or Cascade 220 (though I'm not sure where to get this) What is the softest? I have some 100 Purewool I bought fsot and I LOVE it. It feels so wonderful. But when I checked the site, shipping was CRAZY expensive. So while I think their yarn prices are fantastic, I dont think we can handle $24 shipping for 4 skiens of yarn! HELP!
