Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we are an informative yarn directory site only. Yarn cannot be purchased from this site. However, Yarndex lists many of the websites for yarn companies, and we recommend visiting those sites for a list of retail stores and internet stockists that carry their products and any remaining discontinued yarns. We also recommend doing a general search on the internet and/or visiting knitting chat rooms and auction sites to locate discontinued yarns. Good luck in your search. Yarndex Customer Service

Taki's Donegal Tweed is fantastic and has mega yardage for the price of the hank (yes, you'll have to rewind into a pull skein but worth the effort. This yard works well for crocheted sweaters. I made two bulky turtleneck pullovers entirely in front post relief double crochet. My son and granddaughter loved them!

This yard is available on-line from various places and lots of yard stores carrying Taki yarns will special order for you.

This is a great felting wool too. Used single strand on 5.5mm, the felted fabric is moderately firm. Suggest double strand and perhaps 6.5 to 7mm needle for firmer fabric. Many wools seem to dull up after felting. The Donegal Tweed colors remain bright. Slightly fuzzy felted fabric - softer & less fuzzy than Noro Kureyon (which I love for felting).
