Hello fellow knitters,

I'm planning on making the 'yorick' scarf off knittyhttp://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTyorick.html as a christmas present for my ex boyfriend, however, as I always have at least 5 projects on the go at any time, I need to get cracking, and I cant find the right wool!!!!

Basically, The wool used isn't available in the uk as far as I know, and I don't have a good yarn shop nearby to find a good substitute.I've been searching online with no luck, so the question is......

Do you know any brands of 50/50 wool angora yarn availalbe in the uk, or online?

Thank you in advance for your help!!!

white wool may not felt so just use anything you know will felt in a similar gauge
