Fiveinhand its been a while since I bought any since I don't particularly like it - it wears like iron because it feels like iron - usually I shop around and can find it for about £3 for 50g. Had a quick look at my usual haunts and it does seem to have increased to £8/9 for 100g, good job I've got e...
Lots of supermarkets in Germany sell sock wool including Regia so I wouldn't immediately discount it because its being sold by a supermarket. Check it out in person and see what you think. I've never paid £8-9 for Regia either.

I found ML far easier than dpns, but dpns might work better for you - give them a try mayb...
