They have a pretty large selection of colors, and also have Vanna's Choice, which is about the same softness as Caron SS and has harder to find colors.
Sugar n Cream and Bernat Handicrafter, which are the same yarns labeled by different companies, can also be purchased there with many on-line only colors.
Hope this helps!
Mail ordering with a CC helps me get more "woman" junk mail.
It's not so bad when I'm following a pattern but I've even had patterns underestimate the yarn needed.
But mail order will get me to get around and buy some yarns Wally World didn't carry.
Of course if I would just work on all the stuff I already have yarn for it would take years before I'd have to worry about it.
