Good luck figuring out the yarn.

I guess I meant to say, what kind of sheep is this sort of wool from?

I live in a pretty small town (~20,000) and don't have the choices. There's several brands I've seen locally that are very reasonably priced and come in nice colors. But I can't get a specific kind of notably soft wool, like merino or alpaca. Only "wool", acrylic, wool/acrylic blends, and mohair blends.

We are taking a trip to Athens in September and I plan to hit a big yarn store on Kolokotroni Street.
