I second what Marria and suzeeq said. I don't use a measuring tape to measure, though. If you hold the yarn in your fingers and stretch your arm out to the side, the length from your fingers to...

We just moved to West Virginia from Alabama. I've never seen below 30 much before, so this has been quite a shock. I never thought I'd see a day like today where I went outside into 22 degree...

I would think it would be easiest to think of things in terms of fiber content. Think of what you could typically purchase a ball/skein/hank of each fiber type for. Then make an offer of maybe half...
