I won't spend my money purchasing goods produced anywhere other than in fair trade countries, which Turkey is NOT. Labor abuses are rife there with child labor and forced/slave labor in their textile industry. Workers should be paid fairly and treated fairly, no one should be held against their will to work for another. Children belong in school, not laboring in textile mills. Women in Turkey face an ongoing gender equality struggle. That struggle includes inequality in the workforce and in educational opportunities.

I am with you on this one. I have never purchased anything from Hobbii but I contacted them today and asked if they used yarn produced in Turkey or China. The reply was their yarn is produced in many countries including Turkey and China.

I have respiratory issues. Had the same problem. Doesn't matter if yarn synthetic or natural. I now wear a mask like chemo patients wear when I knit and it alleviates the problem.

What kind do you use and where do you buy yours? Thank you.

I believe the new tariffs go into effect Sept. 1. Ice/Paradise may have increased shipping rather than increase price of yarn.

Smiley's has a minimum order of 50.00 with 12.95 shipping. Their warehouse is in New York and no returns. Think I will pass on this one. Wool Warehouse is great.

I ordered 12 skiens of Tofutsies sock yarn and it made me cough. I had to give it away. I wonder sometimes if the yarns from some countries may be stored in warehouses that are sprayed with insecticides to prevent infestation. Others have used that yarn with no problems but I won't try it again. Too many other yarns that agree with me.

Love them and don't apologize for knitting the humble dish towel. They are used far more often than the spider web shawl that is tucked away in a drawer.
What is the approximate size?

My doctor prescribed the drug a few years ago but after reading of possible side effects I didn't take it. I know 3 women that took it for several years and developed fractures in the thigh bone which is one of the possible side effect. I thought the drug was to help prevent fractures and not cause them. But, on the reverse side, I have a friend that took Fosamax for 5 years and afterwards her bone density had improved to the point where her doctor discontinued the drug. She did suffer leg pain though all the time she took it. Some studies have also shown that Calcium in postmenopausal women may increase their risk of heart attack. I also stopped taking the calcium with my doctors approval but I still take D3

Kitty with guitar. My Mattie plays that song often, even 20 minutes after she has eaten. Thanks for the smiles.
