Ok. I want to knit a hat/scarf for my brother (for christmas). I should have no problem finding a good pattern that will be 'manly' enough .. he is a big kinda-burly manly-man, but he probably be okay with a nice cabled pattern as long as the yarn is not pink.
Anyway, he studied in Scotland when he was in college, loves everything Scottish (our surname is Scottish and we even have our own plaid design) and I think he would really enjoy getting something made out of yarn from Scotland.
Anyway, now that I am done rambling .. Does anyone know of a vendor or shop that sells Scottish yarn here in the states? I can find "Scottish Tweed" type yarns, but I am not sure if that is just the type of coloring in the yarn or really from Scotland.
Any info is appreciated.
