I've used drops yarn and I've got some from felt fusion but can anyone reccomend some others? Both 100% wool for longies and some nice soft acrylic for other clothes. I find myself looking at all the names but not knowing what to pick!

I personally love organic merino wool for babies , then hand dyed, there are a squillion hand dryers out there mostly on etsy.

For acrylic I like Debbie bliss baby

The best thing would be to find a yarn shop , where do you live ?

Will have a look at pixie knits! Stuck on bed rest for the forseable future so unable to get to a wool shop and feel the wool :( someone said cascade 220 is nice wool too. Anyone used that before?

For acrylic I've been using Special by Stylecraft as they have lots of great colours and they are pretty soft, not expensive and easy to get online, it is a DK weight. Lucy from Attic 24 raves about it which is how I ended up trying it.

Cascade 220 is nice - can be used for nappy covers (any wool that is not super wash and has a high % of wool content can be) but it is a bit thinner than Aran weight. It make nice cardigans though!

I love doing things with cotton (and bamboo) yarn, and have eyed up the Rico (?) stuff on ebay - has anyone tried that? I got most of my yarn from Spotlight in Australia but no equivalent here or UK so far as I know!
