I know that pure white is not a color you find often. In fact, I don't know if I've ever seen it.
Does anyone know if anybody has any pure white wool yarn. I'm wanting to make a "light" sweater with it. So, I"m hoping something either finger or sport weight.

Anyone??

Becky-
There are plenty of white sport-weight wool yarns! Here are some examples, from manufacturers that I carry:

Garnstudio Camelia Superwash, color #07
Garnstudio Baby-Ull (Merino superwash), color #01
Lana Grossa Cool Wool 2000 (extrafine Merino superwash), color #431

Also, if you like Debbie Bliss cashmerino there is DB baby cashmerino, color #100

Hope this helps,

Evelyn

Silja sells a white yarn (mixed with nylon -- it is a heavy sock weight, so more or less sport weight). Dale makes its Falk (6 st/in), Heilo (6 st/in), Baby wool (8.5 st./in) and Daletta (machine washable, 7 st/in) in white. I saw all of these at www.beaellisknitwear.com and didn't even look at the other Nordic brands she offers. There are LOTS of choices.

I was just thinking the same thing--looking for white and only finding natural. These yarns are pretty, just too thin for what I need them for. Seems I remember seeing an Iceland wool that was thicker... Oh, and Lamb's Pride makes a white frost merino, I believe it is.

I am pretty sure that Lamb's Pride (which is a wool and mohair mix) has a very white white in both their heavy worsted and bulky gauge.

I have some Brown Sheep fingering and sport weight wool that's pretty close to white. I special-ordered it at Hearth Stone, in Affton, MO, which is a suburb of St. Louis.
