    Can I purchase the yarn on your web site or Is the yarn available in the I like knitting web site for each knit project that I select?

      The yarn is not available for sale on the I Like Knitting website. You can find the yarn on the manufacturer’s website or use a comparable yarn of a similar weight and fiber content.
