I have taken some pictures (you know me, it's really more than some but most of them are unusable, so let's say "some") and here are four of them (four because it is getting late here and tomorrow we mean to get an early start, there will be more of course).
Wolle Rödel - a chain store for yarn (and other fibre related needs like embroidery) in Germany. I dig it because the prices are really ok and they are a good source for no-nonsense yarn like 100% wool and merino (there's your share of fun fur, too, but hey, some people actually like this stuff).
And now - drum roll, please - my favourite section:
SOCK YARN! All of it. And there are some baskets and bins with the specials, 100g balls from their house brand and Regia, 150g balls of the 6ply and special colour ways, and all starting at 3.20€/50g ball (about 5.12CAD at the moment, tax included). I bought a 100g ball of the Rödel house brand with cotton for 5.45€ (8.72CAD) which looks exactly like the Lana Grossa "Meilenweit" which is more but still much less than in Canada.
I leave you now with the information that tomorrow my Mom and I are going to make a trip to a shop where one can get Regia for 2€/50g (3.20CAD) where I plan to overdose on sock yarn and fill up my now half empty suitcase.
