I've found cheaper $$$ Jigsaw online for $16.99 a ball. go to my blog, and in my sidebar is the link for Crossways fabric and wool, I think it's called. Some otherplaces charge up to $24 and sorry, it's just not worth that. I paid $16 for the last ball I purchased in person (!, now that was exciting!)
