I live in San Diego County (Southern Calif) and they closed most of the shops that sold good yarns. The only places that sell yarn is Walmart, Michaels and this little shop that does sell good stuff near my house that opened a few months ago. I didn't even know we had one. I hope she makes it because not many people can afford to pay this prices for yarn.
She also gives classes at $15.00 an hour. I can't afford that. I really don't truly think she will make it, not in this area. She needs to be where people don't think twice about paying $$$ for their yarns. We do have an adult school that teaches classes for about $20 per semester that is great. I took it once and also some upholstery.
I buy alot of the yarns at Walmart also, I knit the kids blankets, slippers etc. I can't stand wool on my body or near my face but seems like the clogs will be ok, they better be lol. I love them.
Ingrid by the way I didn't answer you about the fit. Yes they fit perfect, the width also, I think I need one more day to dry. My husband got a kick out of seeing them how huge and ugly they looked before felting. I wanted him to see the before and after. He loves them.
