    hi.

    I’m trying to get my hands on some Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine wool yarn in 1214 (steel cut oats) as a substitute for Chadwick’s 477.

    I see they stopped making the stuff but used to sell it as 400m long bundles. I’m guessing anyone who bought some is going to have stacks lying around.  Please pm me if you have some.  I’d be keen to buy a few metres.  Thanks for any help.

    Denis.

    Yes thank you.  I have seen that.  Will buy some.  Looks a bit more dull than the other    yarns but I’m basing that on online pics only.   Thanks again.

    Well I’m not prepared to pay the $852 someone is selling on eBay atm for a small card of 477. That’s for certain!
