"Just say no" to wool
It requires some guts for me to go into a galanterie alone. The women usually only speak rapid-fire Czech, so any chance of my understanding them is nil. They never speak English, German or any other language I know, so I must talk in grunts and sign language.
The yarn in this galanterie is way up high, accessible only by the owner's stepladder, mostly wrppped in huge sheets of clear plastic. So I asked if any of the yarn was wool (vlna).
Another lady in the store who spoke a bit of English tried to placate me. She didn't tell me that the lady thought I was out of my mind to want wool yarn, though it was obvious that the lady has said just that. Instead, Lady #2 tried to appeal to my reason. "Acrylic is so much better," she said. It's softer, not itchy, and--best of all--bugs (moths) won't touch it! The store owner hadn't carried wool yarn in 20 years!
