I was reading the German Ravelry posts and came across this little gem of a store called Die Wollbox. They have Noro, Peaches & Cream, Sublime, Trekking (have you seen the hand dyed sock yarn – only 3 colors but daaayyyuuuummm!), Cascade 220 and some others. Not an indie dyer, and not the greatest yarn – but it’s stuff that is NOT NORMAL in a lot of german yarn stores and the prices really aren’t that bad. It’s expensive if compared to the US (esp with the exchange rate) but if you only want a little sumthin’ sumthin’, it’s a great place. Must…not…place…order…AND THEY HAVE KNIT PICKS NEEDLES!!!! I’m about to pee my pants.
Also, I got a shipment of malabrigo worsted in…can I just roll around in it now?

yep i thought you knew about this store. apparently some other people on the #ravelry irc channel said she has really good service too. oh, and i found her because i was looking for the jojoland melody: apparently really awesome color transitions similar to trekking. i also ordered myself some peaches+cream *smile* and a bunch of those knitpicks needles.

Great. Now I peed in my pants. And I don’t even live in Germany! :-)

I love the Wollbox. I usually order my Addis there, cheap shipping and all length available :) I think about ordering some Cascade 220 for the CPH *g*

I *heart* Cascade 220. That is funny though, I am sitting here reading you post, at first thinking “What is so special about that?”
Oh. Right. You’re in Germany! DUH! *smacks forehead*
