This is part umpteen of my occasional, slightly self-indulgent, look-at-these-prices series:
We're concentrating on an internet giant with the initials WW today, as Big D's seems to have fallen out of favour with many. Here goes:
Debbie Bliss Paloma: WW £6.29/TBF £5.95
Debbie Bliss Rialto 4ply: WW £4.99/TBF £4.50
Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran: WW £4.99/TBF £4.50
Patons 100% Cotton 4 ply: WW £4.99/TBF £4.50
Patons 100% Cotton DK: WW £4.99/TBF £4.50
There are a couple of other yarns where the difference is negligible, and there's one yarn where this particular big boy site is maybe 25pence a ball cheaper. But overall, it's worth looking into your local wool shop - whether that's Three Bags Full or a different little shop - or shopping with the smaller sites, not just for good prices but also for fab, friendly, speedy service.
Okay, I won't mention pricing - or rather, people's perceptions about pricing - again for...oh, at least a day or so.
