have you looked at www.discountyarnsal e.com? They sell their yarn in bulk so it's cheaper. 10 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease is between $22-25. here's the link for that http://www.discountyarnsale.com/pd_lion_brand_woolease.cfm

Thanks everyone for your help.  I third the recommendation for Sheep Shed.  Their customer service over the phone is awesome.  When I called they were having problems with their website and I couldn't order from the website.  I called on Friday and they made a special invoice and had emailed it to me within an hour.  I paid for the yarn via Paypal the same day and the yarn arrived on Monday.  I can't believe that I got the yarn so quickly.  And even though they say the yarn is seconds, there are no flaws in it that I can find.  I'm going to place more orders in the future for sure!

I think you need 50% wool or more to felt. Patons SWS come in both multi and solid colors, is fairly inexpensive if you get it on sale or use Michaels/Joanns coupons and felts well. Very well, you have to keep an eye on it as it felts very fast.

Peace Fleece worsted is a heavy worsted.  If you order it wholesale (and anyone can as long as you meet the minimum order - you don't have to be a business) it's $4.50 per skein and the shipping tends to work out to be about 25c per skein.  You have to order $100 worth of product at a time to get the wholesale pricing (it can be more than $100 Smiley ) and they charge actual UPS shipping.

The website is peacefleece.com - the worsted is a wool/mohair blend and it washes up really nicely.  They'll also let you sell items made from their patterns as far as I know, which might also be useful to your group.  They have a natural color that isn't bleached as well as many solids/heathers.

It's not that convenient, but I'd go to AC Moore and/or Michaels with coupons from the Sunday paper and buy one skein at a time of the yarn you need.  They have a big selection, so you'll be able to find bulky wool.  Even if it goes for $6.99, 40% off is about $4.  You might have to bring some friends because sometimes they only let you use one coupon, no matter how many separate transactions you ask to do.  Good luck.

I know you've already found the wool you were looking for but just wanted to add that elann.com has some great prices for wool as well.
