I don't know much about the company, only that everything by them that my lys has is on sale for $2/ball. None of this nice wool, though. At least not by the time I got to the sale.

Oh, my! It doesn't look like you can get it on line, though. Or did I miss something?

I haven't tried it yet, but I do have a some of their classic wool, in my stash.

When I saw the post I remembered I that I got some of their yarn as samples from one of my editors at work. I also got the Art of Knitting DVDs (both 1 & 2), they were included in the press pack she received. Since we don't cover fiber arts, she gave them to me!! I do have samples of their Bell Dk, Cassie, Opal, Bellagio, Twister and Coral. They are little balls of yarn though, don't know what I would do with them.
