I live in Scotland. One of the countries which has the largest amount of sheep. Wool comes from Sheep as we all know. Therefore you'd think there would be an abundance of wool mills around and that teh wool would be easy to get to at a fair price.
Even people I know who knit or crochet in Denmark are jealous of me living in "the land of all the wonderful and cheap wool". Well. Unfortunately that is not the case. At least there are none anywhere near anything that I have ever heard of!? Unbelievable. Scottish wool costs the same to buy in Denmark as it does in Scotland. Something wrong with that picture!
