Which yarn by Pingouin (is that how the label spells it or are we talking about two different brands)? They made several different kinds. I think they are no longer in business, but I see their yarn all the time on eBay.

Well, no I don't. I'm not sure what color 9 is. You might want to ask by color since that's how most people think of their yarn.

I guess I'd try putting out a Want it Now on eBay. I was lucky and got some discontinued yarn I was looking for that way. Try some other boards too - knitters review, knitty, maybe some of the Yahoo buying groups.

I've seen that brand at the brick & mortar location of this LYS

http://www.velona.com/

They have on online store but the actual location is rather large and my impression is the have some stuff that stays around for awhile. You might call and see if they would do an actual stock check for you. I'd be willing to actually go for you if it looks promising but they can't follow through. Just PM me.
