Wool.. What base?

What base is best for toddlers? I'm starting to get yarn together for the girls wool stash for the fall but I want to make sure that the yarn I get can stand up to the girls. They will be 14 months or so when we can start using it.

Oh and what's your favorite place to buy undyed yarn?

Cestari (Lindon Merino is Cestari from Three Irish Girls)
Blackberry Ridge Wooolen Mills (BBR, it comes in 2ply or 3ply)
Mountain Meadow Wool

You can pretty much google the name of the wool mill and purchase direct from them. You can also find stores on HyenaCart and Etsy that sell undyed yarns.

MMW - Mountain Meadow Wool

Are my 3 favorite for toddlers.

If you don't mind shaving, BFL works as well. We have a pair of BFL that DD1 wore for a long time as a toddler that are in great shape...they regularly need a shave, but I'm ok with that.
