Anyone who doesn't have the cash for angora and wool blend yarns and doesn't mind a little work to get them you can shop for used sweaters at the Goodwill outlet store on Dearborn in Seattle. All clothing is in huge bins there and it all sells for $1.29 a pound. I take sweaters apart and re-dye and re-knit the yarn. Beware those fine angora or cashmere sweaters though. They are a bitch to rip out. An alternative is to felt them down to teeny bits for use in puppets or blankies.
