    Opal, Earl obviously isn’t being helpful. Why do you insist on dragging him along with you?

    Because Opal isn’t through picking on him yet…if ever.

    A ball of yarn is called a “clew”.
    Opal had to hit the Yarn Barn because she is clewless.

    Vicuna yarn is actually available now, due to conservation efforts, but it is extremely expensive.

    Why does she need him to buy yarn?

    And didn’t we just learn about Vicuña on Gasoline Alley in the last 2 weeks?

    Maybe she thinks Earl is a better driver than she is; or she doesn’t feel safe without him. She could also value his opinion about purchase decisions and/or enjoy his company.

    Vicuña hair. Only sheep have wool; goats, rabbits, llamas, vicuñas and camels have hair. And last time I looked it’s not sold to knit up; only in finished garments.

    One can buy vicunas bred in this country. Why the excessive cost of the wool?

    In Central Oregon, first it was llamas. then it was alpacas. In the last few years it’s been vicunas. At one point a stud llama ran for about $20,000 locally.

    Wonder if they will try jagulars (Pooh spelling) next?

    FWIW, Merriam-Webster says vicuña produce wool.

    orinoco womble is right, vicuña doesn’t have wool, but hair.
