Where do you get your wool yarn?

Not sure this is in the right place to put this. 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. Suggestions?

I have gotten stuff off FSOT here, on spots, directly from the dyer (lollytree and three irish girls) also I have searched on ravelry if I want a specific colorway/base. I just found out there are 2 lys in my area that I really want to check out also but I need to actually use some of the yarn I have here first and destash some diapers for yarn

Local Yarn Shop. I have to feel the yarn before buying it and see the colors in person. But, I'm blessed to live in an area where there is a thriving local shop here in town and several just a short drive away. Not sure what I would do if that was not an option.

There are some great yarnies on HC but I think alot moved their stores to Etsy.

I haven't stocked my store in a while but I just finished up a small co-op for another group.

Some of my faves are
yarn loft
Gaia's treasures
Mosaic Moon
Bear & Pants
Disco baby knits

There is a Bear & Pants coop going on right now at the Squirmie Worm. I think it closes today.
