X posted, where do you get your wool yarn?

Anyone want to offer where they get their yarn. I guess im not sure where to buy from and what to look for in my wool yarn. Still newer to the Hook and want to use some GOOD wool yarn. Been using Patons and im ready to branch out. Please feel free to spam me if you have wool yarn to sell or know of a good WAHM on Etsy or something. Suggestions?

I have a WAHM thread here (in my sig) with in stock and customs. Do you have a local yarn store? Just going and petting things helped me a LOT when I was a new knitter, just feeling different fibers and such.

I just ordered some custom from nachomomma and I love it! Beautiful color exactly as I pictured it and so easy to knit with. I definitely recommend and will order again!

Some good commercial wool yarns (not WAHM) are Blackberry Ridge, Malabrigo, Manos Del Uruguay, PureWool. You can find them at online yarn stores or local knitting stores, or through the manufacturer.

WAHM yarns I like are Wacky Alpacky, Lollytree, Dear Husband, Mosaic Moon, and Family Pendragon (closed )
