Hello again everyone:

I am shopping for Christmas and my wife recently mentioned something about yarns made from pearls. I would like to purchase some pearl yarn and some qiviut this year for her. If anyone would be kind enough to tell me where I might find the pearl yarn, I (and dhe) would be grateful for your assistance, once again.
Thank you for your time
James

This was a 30th Anniversary yarn for Vogue Knitting. Only 500 skeins were made, they sold for 40.00 plus shipping. Zealana is developing another pearl yarn will have more details in the Fall. zealana.co.nz
The yarn is a lace weight
