A lot depends on what you're looking for. elann.com has a variety of yarns; www.littleknits.com has some great deals on higher-end yarns; www.herrschners.com has discounts; www.yarnbarn.com , supmptuousyarnsales.com www.discontinuedbrandnameyarn.com
just to name a few

There's also elann.com. they have discounted high end yarns about half off, but they'll be limited in colors as these are usually discontinued colors.

Has anyone heard of Knitpicks.com Wool of the Andes? It says that it's 100% wool and only $1.99 a skein (50 grams).
I, too, am looking for an inexpensive place to buy wool yarn.

I like Wool of the Andes, especially for felting.

Be careful with the WOTA. It's great for felting, but it does pill quite a bit when used as is.

And it's somewhat rough, for a next to the skin sweater. Would be alright for a cardigan, or one always worn over another shirt.
