Anyone know of a good reliable source online to buy it from? Where I will not pay a fortune for shipping an handling?
I don't know since it's a discontinued yarn but premier is now selling a similar yarn so I expect the craft stores will get this in as so many make the trellis necklaces. You might find some of the original on ebay or etsy. Mary
Here is a link that might be useful: Premier yarn
There are only two patterns on the Premier yarns website using the trellis yarn.
One pattern involves crocheting, and the other is neither crocheted NOR knitted.
And while snooping around the Internet, I found: "Similar to Lion Brand Trellis and Bernat Matrix,
City Life Ladder yarn is a glitzy ladder yarn."
Yes the premier yarn is the city life stuff, probably a knitting video on youtube for it I would bet. Most people I know make and sell the trellis necklaces that don't involve knit or crochet. Mary
