Best merino DK yarn please

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

I need some suggestions as I don't want to spend £50 making the top from this month's molly makes! I need 1200m of the stuff and the suggested yarn (rico design merino dk) comes up at around £4 per ball before postage!

I suspect you'll struggle to find much cheaper than that? But I am no expert. Deramores currently have some of the Rico on sale at £3.31 per ball.

Wendy Merino is nice, can you get that any cheaper than the Rico?

Try Drops - it's v reasonable and excellent quality. I used the superwash merino for E's dress. Wool Warehouse have a good range of Drops to check out.
