I used 12 skeins of Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed in color 09 blue. It is still available at www.yarn.com. You get a 25% discount off the per ball price when you are spending $120 in your cart.
You probably already know that. WEBS offers a lot of yarns that say "discountable". Then there are yarns that are already reduced, and they say "no further discount".
There is a discrepancy about the yardage in my yarn. The ballband doesn't say how many yards are in each ball. However, search engines say 97 yds. I dunno if I trust that. If that is the case, my size 46 only took 1,164 yds. But, another search I found said that this yarn has 122 yds per ball. If that is correct, then I used a total of 1,464 yds...which is more reasonable.
Anyhoo, I did use 12 skeins of this particular yarn. AND I LOVE THIS YARN! You will, too!
HERE IS A LINK to the yarn I used. Shown as $9.95 per skein...but only $7.46 with that 25% discount. I remember buying 20...scared that I wouldn't have enough. Now I have 8 left over...but that's okay.
I have plans for it!
