My dear husband, whom I've been married to for 26 years, has given me a Christmas gift,:present: which is a sizable allowance, to buy some fancy yarn.
I've never, ever had fancy, high quality yarn, and I would really like to get some suggestions from all of you, as to who online sells the best knitting yarn, (I like sport weight best, as far as I know!), at the best price, for the most yardage per skein, and who has the most beautiful colors? I LOVE color!!

I'm totally ignorant as to what knits up best,
what is most durable,
what type of yarn to use in different types of garments.
I DO know, I [COLOR="Red"]don't [/COLOR]like 100% wool. :fingerwag: Just don't like it.
I do like wool [FONT="Arial Black"]blends.[/FONT]
I've been interested in trying these types of yarn:
alpaca blend, mohair, silk, silk blends, llama, yak, angora blend,and
cashmere blend. Cotton is good, just fine, so are acrylics.
I don't really like ribbon yarns, or slub, not much use for eyelash, but, some of it is pretty. Like, elf eyelash is cute.
SO, please tell me what you like best, where to get it online, and why you like it.:balloons:
