Don't know if I should share this or keep the secret to myself: Spotlight has stock of Moda Vera sock yarn [75% wool, 25% nylon] at only $4.99 per 100g ball [regular price].
Yes, you read that right - a pair of handknitted socks for under $5!
The yarn seems okay; in my opinion, it's softer than Lincraft's [which is $12.99 per 100g]. It looks comparable to Heirloom but it's hard to tell while it's in the ball!!
I bought one ball this morning and will let you know how I go; I'm back on a knitting time diet and tiny needles don't help either so don't hold your breath!!
