 There are bargains to be had but the rate of exchange isn't helping. The prices in the factory shop are much cheaper. An example, Lang Puno is 54 a cake in the UK but in the factory shop it was 30 CHF which is about 25.
I bought cotton cashmere for about 1.60 a 50g ball and 2.45 for baby alpaca in Jakob- Markt but these were sale items.
The pink angora was 1 CHF a ball but they told me it was faulty. I thought it worth the risk!
First photo is the cotton cashmere which I started over there and the second photo is my Lang haul!

Back from yarn buying in Switzerland. First two pics are the Lang factory shop near Reiden and the other one is a branch of Jakob-Markt

Nice one H., your camera has its own crocheted lens cover, trend setting again.  8)
