Where can you find a good selection of wool yarn?

My mom and I are going to try making wool soakers for DD, but we have checked at Joann fabrics and Michael's and most of their yarn is acrylic, not wool. Can you find wool at a chain store, or is it only available online? Also, what is a good brand for soakers?

Not really. Do you have a local yarn shop? You will have better luck there, but I get most of my stuff online anyways.

yarn.com
knitpicks.com
http://www.cestariltd.com/ the fine yarn is really great for woolies.

Look for a local yarn store. My LYS is Paradise Fibers www.paradisefibers.net and it is a HUGE yarn paradise for sure.
