A few months back, thanks to this board, I ordered some Wool of the Andes from Knit Picks. I wanted to make something that would felt, and I decided on a couple of simple items: an eyeglass case and a cell phone tote. The colors I used are Maple Syrup and Snickerdoodle (yes, I do have a sweet tooth;) ).

They both turned out so much nicer than I expected. (Actually, I was expecting a disaster!) You can see my before and after photos if you click on the blinkie. Thanks for looking!

I can hardly find wool anywhere. It's such a bummer. I really love your work though! It was cool to see and now I have two more patterns on my list ;)

All the wool I can find is 9 bucks a pop and it's lion brand in a big skein. I'd have to die it myself and I'm so scared! lol.

You should check this out http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/yarn_display.aspx?itemid=5420101 Only 2.99 for 100 gram hank. I got some and its really great. The only problem is its so soft I really hate to use it for felting! I have had some success on ebay finding wool for a good price if you are willing to buy a pound or more. I got 8 pounds of red for about $20 form an ebay seller

I, too, get my yarn from knitpicks.com and I have great success with it, both in regular knitting and felting :X:
