I took the knitting goodie bag, T&N and went for 2 months to Thailand! We had a great time - N learned to walk, how to eat sand and how to flirt with the kitchen staff to get bananas.
I wanted to find some local yarn, natural fiber if possible but all I found was acrylic heaven. Here is one picture from a top end department store in Bangkok - all acrylic & expensive.
I found some very typical (and very acrylic) Thai yarn for 3.60 SEK (18 Bath) a skein. It contains 19 grams, no info about the number of meters. It is a bad picture, the pink is VERY bright.
