Thus far I’ve bought my yarn from Meijer and WalMart :shock: and it’s all been acrylic, worsted weight.
Well after reading this board for a week I decided that I need to expose myself to the finer things in the knitting world. So, I researched and found a LYS by my house. I stopped by today and was totally overwhelmed. It seemed like they had a lot of nice stuff, but how was I really to know? There were a ton of different yarns, needles, books, etc. It was busy and I’m a shy guy so I didn’t want to bend anyones ear to have it all explained to me. Plus I know what helpful people lurk here
So I guess my question is, how do I know what is a reasonable price for a skein of yarn? I understand that it depends on what kind of yarn I’m looking for (figuring that out would help a lot) but are there certain standards? I’m totally confused on where to begin. :?
