To discover how to buy yarn cheaper! To me is pratically impossible to buy things that are from USA - because of the taxes - but i'm trying to discover whether i buy wool from Uruguay or Argentina the taxes will be lower (they're members, as well as Brazil, of Southern Common Market). Look : http://www.indiasargentina.com.ar/hilados/hilados_eng.htm and http://www.manos.com.uy/ (sold in usa at http://www.kyarns.com/manos-del-uruguay-yarn.html and http://www.ashleyyarns.com/) . Pretty cool, aren't they? And Malabrigo is from Uruguay as well!

If i could buy a pure wool/alpaca/silk or anything of that matter with 15% taxes instead of 60%, it'd be wonderful! Brazilian import taxes are a rip-off, and brazilian yarns basically suck (the cotton ones are good, but yarn yarn is only so so acrylic or other synthetic fiber - with a max of 30% wool).
