have you looked at www.discountyarnsale.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.

Look at the selection and prices at www.smileysyarns.com...might be something there that would work for you.

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.
