I'm not sure if everyone knows about this site but wanted to pass it along: http://www.woolneedlework.com/

I've been looking for Noro Kureyon #95 and it's been around $8.50 per skein. :( I found this site and they have it listed for $6.69 a skein. :happydance: This particular one won't be in until the end of May or beginning of June but you can pre-order it. It looks like all of the Noro Kureyon is also $6.69. It's really a great price. :lol:

Not sure what you mean :thinking: yarn is yarn it just depends on what it's made from: wool, mohair, cotton. acrylic etc.

Well, I am a beginner and everything sounds new to me. This is the opening statement from your link: "Knitting yarn . Buy knitting yarn and wool in a great selection. Knitting wools and yarns include yarn by Noro yarn ... ", it sounds to me that knitting wool is something, then knitting yarn is something else...

In places other than the US, "wool" is often a generic term for "yarn."
