Comparable yarn help
I have a sock pattern that calls for (100 g) Patons Shetland Ragg K.W. or Patons Classic Wool or Patons Shetland Chunky (or similar weight of yarn). Anyone know of any stores that carry this, or of a similar yarn? I've heard of the brand but don't think I've seen it recently.

I've used Patons Shetland Chunky and I liked it a lot. I made a sweater from it for my son last Christmas and he wore it this year and it still looks good. Of course, it could have been the first time he wore it, too. :rollseyes:

I got mine from www.herrschners.com because they had it as a weekly special.

If you google any of them, you can find on-line places. If Joanns or Michael's carries it, that should pop up too, if you don't want to buy it on line.
