Ordering Wollmeise

EDIT: Order now closed.

Thinking about trying Wollmeise sock yarn? Know me? Live in/near the Twin Cities? (It's easier to post than to send out an email to y'all.)

Thanks to Elemmaciltur for the gorgeous photo (seen at right). Make sure to visit his blog. He's quite the Wollmeise enabler.

A few of us are ordering together-- and we have space for a few more orders. (She ships in sets of 5 skeins). I've never seen the yarn in person, but I've been following online discussions/posts since last January-- and have talked to many who absolutely love the yarn.

It comes in 150g hanks- 575 yds, G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S. colors, superwash merino sock yarn.

The price per skein is great-- email me at by Friday morning if you're interested. THis post will dissapear when our order cart is full!

Many socks knit with Wollmeise can be seen here. (Try translate page tool) It comes with a warning-- Look at your own peril. If you order, you will become addicted to this yarn! How funny.

Claudia's site is the actual Wollmeise home. All available colorways can be seen here-- except for the new ones. (Click on her blog to see them, available on the "Wollmeise" side.)

Yes, you will be sooo happy! Claudia is awesome and it is a great idea to order yarn together to save on shipping! You can also see more picture (in English!) in our flickr group at Whenever you do get your yarn, you'll have to join our group too!!!

Great idea! I've been able to use some of the Wollmeise yarn, and it's fantastic :) Enjoy it!
