hi there Samm,
I too am in Ontario about 15 minutes north of Napanee..biggest city is Kingston about an hour away..
anyway the yarn is on www.elann.com
they are excellent to buy from and always have great sales, click on yarn and about halfway down the page you will find the elann peruvian wool
not a ton of colors but nice none the less and a really good deal, let me know how you make out or if you need more help

It knits up fine...but is a little scratchy. I liked the price! So, I wear a tank top or cami under it.

Based on the description, i.e. 'scratchy, and being 'Peruvian highland wool' might this fiber actually be llama? I always thought of llama as being slightly scratchy, and how many sheep are there in the Peruvian highlands? :shrug:

Isn't WOTA from Knitpicks similar?

Does WOTA stand for Wool Of The Andes?
