I've been knitting a pair of wool longies for my son for the past couple weeks, and holy cow--I have found THREE knots in the yarn so far, that was just two ends knotted together.. Fabulous.

So for anyone who knits longies, can you give me an idea of where to get/order yarn thats a little better than this? Or is this typical with wool yarn?

Oh gosh! that sucks! I have bought I little skien (sp?) of wool yarn, but have barely touched it yet. Where did you buy it from?

I got it from Michaels' I'm just using fisherman's wool, the only 100% wool yarn I could find locally. Totally ordering online next time, i've heard good things about Merino wool..

  I get huge skeins of Lion brand fisherman's wool and haven't had that problem. But I have had it in one skein of Paton's wool from JoAnn's Fabrics and a small skein I ordered online - don't remember what brand? But it was not dyed or anything, just a commercial packaged wool yarn.

  I think you just run the risk of getting a sucky skein when buying commercial yarns! But unfortunately there is no way I can afford the nice homespun or hand dyed ones you see in online shops.
