The red yarn that I started as a scarf.. is in the Italian Mohair yarn. *Also, all the other soft thin fuzzy mult-colored yarns are also the Italian mohair yarns. **I put more detailed photos of the individual groups on my blog.
The mohair was the only yarn that we able to buy only 2 skeins of each color. (I also only bought 2 skeins of the really thick multi-colored yarn)

All the other yarn had to be purchased in packages of 10 skeins (50 grams each) or 500 grams for the package. Or in 4 skeins (of 100 grams each) or 400 gram packages.

I didn't dare take a photograph of the MOUNTAIN of yarn that would have been produced if I had put all the yarn together. I just took a photo of each different yarn.

I wish everyone could fly over here- I'd be happy to take you to the yarn market. However, the $2,000.00 airline ticket would put a dent in the yarn budget.

Some of this yarn was on big, big, sales.. (not a regular event here) most of the yarn that we bought- we only paid $12.00 for four 100 gram skeins.. or an entire package of 4 skeins of 100 grams per skein yarn for only $10.00- 12.00 dollars! 100%wool.
That's why I bought so much yarn.. I only paid full price for 2 packages of yarn.

Ok, now go and buy a plane ticket to Seoul, Korea and bring money for the yarn market... you have a more than willing yarn market escort!
