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!

Cascade Eco is nice and you get a lot for your money. Treliske is my absolute favorite, but you have to buy it in bulk. For about $100 you get a ginormous stash sent to you from NZ.

there is a purewool coop going on right now on a yahoo group. The prices are good. i participated last time and will be again this time I loooove purewool.<br><br>
I just finished knitting a soaker for dd, there is a pic in my blog, it knits up quick and beautiful, I am a big fan. Although now I am hearing that their 3ply is even better than the original because it is more durable. So i am going to try that one out too... too much yarn not enough time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
