wool users-yarn question

I tried using wool longies with my boys, and never really felt the love. But, now I have a girl and of course want to try it out again since girl stuff is way cuter! I am looking at having a skirty (juliette pattern) or longies made and most of the wahm I see on here/hyena cart/etsy that would be in my price range does the YYMN. I have no idea what kind of wool yarn to get, or what a decent price would be. Is $20 an average price or can I find something a little cheaper? I found one I really liked, but don't think I can really justify spending $20 on just the yarn!
Thanks!

Re: wool users-yarn question

$20 is pretty average. You could get something cheap from say Joanns, like Patons or Cascade, but its not going to be as soft nor as pretty imo. I love the handpainted hyena yarns too much, lol.

One thing to consider though is if you get the better nicer yarn, you'll most likely recoup the costs in reselling once you're done with it anyway. You might not get all of it back but a good chunk of it.

Re: wool users-yarn question

Craft forum is definitely better. As for what yarn you should get-- it depends what you want! If it's for a newborn, I'd go with purewool as it's super soft but pills easily on mobile babies. If you want something more practical (which is my own personal preference) for an older babe, I'd do Cascade 220, which they're having a sale on on yarn.com ($4.99 + S&H per 220 yard skein). I found Cascade 220 was plenty soft for my LO.

Thanks, I did find the craft forum yesterday (I've never looked at it!) and reposted there.
