    Hi Mikey. I live in Australia and we do not really buy our wool/acrilic, by the skein or yard. We mostly buy it by the ply…either 2 or 3 or 4 ply(usually very nice baby wool, in pale colours) 6 ply sometimes socks and fine jumpers, but mostly 8 ply for almost anything, including granny squares, and cushion covers etc….I am not expecting you to answer straight away, but it would be nice if there was some way maybe you or someone else could explain the differences…I do not buy online, so as some one else suggested just get it on line…I don’t, but it would be handy if I had the differences between skeins/yards and ply’s
