Hello again everyone:

I am shopping for Christmas and my wife recently mentioned something about yarns made from pearls. I would like to purchase some pearl yarn and some qiviut this year for her. If anyone would be kind enough to tell me where I might find the pearl yarn, I (and dhe) would be grateful for your assistance, once again.
Thank you for your time
James

According to the fall 2012 issue of Vogue Kintting, Zealana manufactures a pearl yarn. A company called Yarn Sisters is the exclusive distributor. A web address was not provided in the article.
