I actualy agree with Barry. He said everything. Granted I only buy cheepo yarn, but he has a very good point.

Nonya -- Mr. Klein's view is extremely popular amongst the yarn manufacturers and many retailers, however if you ask the general yarn consumer, they feel quite differently.

We at Consumer Friendly Yarns are not opposed to retailers charging more for the services they provide, and in fact completely support and agree with this practice. What we oppose is retailers being FORCED or required to charge a certain price by the manufacturers. We believe that what a retailer chooses to charge for their product (once they've purchased it from the manufacturer) should be up to the retailer, and that if a manufacturer wants to charge a particular retail price for their product, they should retail it themselves and not wholesale it. We believe in fair market economy, healthy competition, and capitalism, which is what the United States is founded on.

I've noticed that Yarn manufacturers get a complaints from LYS about web based companies and other LYS who mark down yarns (even if they are discontinued colors). Then they complain and threaten the web-based or small business. This is true of Jade Sapphire and Handmaiden just to name a few.
