Rhinebeck Fiber search...?

I am finishing a priject with a fabulous yarn i spun from Rhinebeck. However, i ran out. a knitters nightmare. i know. im sad. but i want to purchase more fiber. I remember seeing someone on here with a picture of something they bought at Rhinebeck. It was the exact same fiber i bought. 1 lb of 50/50 mohair/wool purple and green mixture for 34$. Does this sound familiar to anyone? If so do you have the info on who it was??? Im still trying to find the name, tag, bag, recepit anything. I even went as far to check my bank statment. Nothing. I am so sad. please help if you can....thanks:)
