Where does it come from?

When I buy handpainted yarns from those who don’t shear it and spin it themselves, where do they get the base yarns from? I’ve tried to do google searches but I don’t really know what search words to use: anything with yarn in it comes up with way too many returns.

Does anyone know what companies sell superwash merino, classic merino, 75/25 merino/nylon, etc…?

Thanks!!

have you looked at the “bare” yarns from Knit Picks?

Thank you for the suggestions. I have checked the knitpick yarns, but not the other one. I’ll give it a look!
