i called them today to see if they have WOTA colors that aren't on the site (when you go into baby yarns there is a WOTA picture of baby blue yarn but it isn't available that i can see) the woman who answered the phone acted like i was crazy asking about colors. I am sure they are very nice people but i was more than a little annoyed with her. She acted like i was speaking a foreign language. grrrrrr


i went to my LYS and got me some baby blue yarn...hmph! :D

I want white, too!! And LOTS more colors in WOTA; WOTA colors comparable to the merino style, which has the prettiest colors to me. FYI...I AM Merino yarn, according to the quiz :rollseyes: . I happen to be my favorite yarn...lol; were that the case...I'd have a LOT of yarn .

I think it's a HUGE flaw in their company. The color choices are awful, for all the yarns. Not that they aren't beautiful colors, but there isn't a big enough selection of any. And there are very few standard basic colors. At the very least, there should be white and natural available in EVERY yarn, in addition to what they already have.

It's crazy. SO many times I've gone there first to look for yarn for a project, and have had to go elsewhere because the colors are so darned limited.

Hopefully one day, they'll widen the color choices.

I called them the first day that I noticed that light blue wota on the main yarn page. I asked the nice lady that answered the phone about when they would be getting more colors and she said it was something that they are looking to do. she said that having a white and black in every yarn was on the top of their priority list. She also said that the company just took off so fast that with all of the work trying to keep up with the orders and maintaining the business that they have gotton a little behind schedule.

I will keep supporting them. So far, I have not been dissppointed!
