Dear CR folks,

After our ride last Saturday I realized that my wool tights have worn through at the crotch seams and probably need to be replaced. (The wool is so thin that it probably will not take a repair. They may get converted to leg warmers.)

Any recommendations on a good source (preferably in northern California) for all-wool or 80/20 wool/nylon tights with ankle zips? I have looked at Rivendell and other sites, but not found anything yet that matches what I have.
