Yarn lovers, why so little interest in MM yarn??

Why is it that some yarns are so hot (Selah, DD, Western Sky, etc) and others just sit there. I honestly cannot believe how much beautiful Mosaic Moon yarn is just sitting in her hyenacart store. There is even a semi-custom spot available (I wore my fingers out stalking MM customs a couple years ago and now this one is just sitting there ). Somebody please go buy it before I do.

And this was stocked last night and hardly any has sold

Is it the type of yarn used? Or the colorways? Or what? I have't tried many different yarns, and there are so many varieties now, but I'd love to know why some of the popular ones are so popular??

Oh, I totally caved and just purchased the semi-custom snowy mt spot. I was doing just fine resisting it until dh said he liked it. I would love to see pics of your shorts. I think her colorways knit up so beautifully.

Thank you for buying that. I seriously just went over there and was going to buy it, even though I really shouldn't, LOL.

Re: Yarn lovers, why so little interest in MM yarn??

I love her stuff - I just recently bought her "chocolat" on Marr haven and it is yummy!

also she stocks a lot of yarn all at once- like more than one or two skeins per colorway so I think that is why some are left.

I wonder also if price is the issue- I will pay a lot for something like targhee b/c it is an expensive base... but personally i am not really interested in paying $22.50 for a skein of 3ply Purewool- i mean I love how soft it is but it does pill a lot... I would have to REALLY love the colorway (and have an infant )

I just crocheted up one of her mystery colorway's on Uraguay Merino. It's gorgeous and so wonderful to work up. I wish I had the $$ because so much would be snatched up!

Maybe this is why I am so into it right now. I have a ten week old ds, and I love how soft the 3ply is. And, she is doing so many boy colorways. This is my first boy, and I love all the different boy options she has.

But, I am a stickler for soft wool. I can't stand it the least bit scratchy. There are so many different types of merino, and I never know which I will like.
