I'm having the hardest time finding lace-weight cashmere yarn. Any sources? Anyone know who's selling any? Elann has fingering weight cashmere yarn. Could I substitute it in a lacey scarf pattern? Thanks! :)

I'm sorry I thought they were the same, what is the same as lace weight?

Well anyway here's some lace on ebay.

Go to ebay and go to Colormart UK store.

I've bought from them and they are very good - they have laceweight and other weights on cones and skeins.

They have an ebay store - its all in US $ prices so the market they aim at is the US rather than UK (though they do sell to the UK).

The store is at:

and they currently have 134 laceweight cashmere items
