That's what I said when I opened the order that came today from Woolgirl! See what I got!
I only just found out about this store recently from reading the Knitty boards and I was really pleasantly surprised with the selection! Lots of yarns I'd never heard of before, and lots of the really hard to find ones that always seem to be out of stock. So I had to get me some . . . cuz you know, I have absolutely nothing to knit right now.
On the left, the pink/black/white skein is 75% superwash merino/25% nylon from new-to-me Vancalcar Acres. It is REALLY soft and I like the simple color palette, although you can tell that not much went into dying this particular skein of yarn -- there is just a blob of pink and a blob of brownish black, with no shading or anything. It's definitely not as interesting or stunning in person as some other hand-dyed sock yarns, but it feels really good (I think they use the same base yarn as Cabin Cove, it's ridiculously soft)
At the top, the 3 skeins of turquoise/brown are chunky fine merino from Three Irish Girls, another new-to-me company. I just fell in love with this colorway (it's called Donegan if you're curious) and couldn't NOT buy it. I'm planning to make a super easy seed stitch scarf with it, since the crazy color will do all the work. The yarn isn't super soft (considering it's fine Merino) and it has a bit of a felted texture, but the color is GORGEOUS and it's definitely soft enough to wear as a scarf.
Last but not least, at the bottom right you see 2 skeins of the DIET COKE color of Spunky Eclectic's Super Sport yarn. I had to buy this one because it's called DIET COKE. How could I pass it up? This yarn reminds me of STR because it's tightly twisted and thick, although personally I wouldn't have called it sport weight. It's barely thicker than Jitterbug, actually, I just checked. It's nice and cushy, with the great sproing (that's the technical term) you expect from 100% Merino sock yarn.
I was very happy with the service from Woolgirl, and they give free shipping if you reach some minimum amount (I passed the minimum by a bunch). They even sent a little sheep stitch marker! My one complaint is, again, too much packaging. Almost every skein was individually wrapped in tissue and tied with ribbon, which is very pretty and all but just seems wasteful to me. Minor complaint though, I will definitely be ordering from them again!
