I know that this is slightly off topic but, knowing what an all-round crafty and creative bunch you all are, thought I'd see if you had any suggestions.
I am fairly new to knitting garments, mostly having done shawls and scarves, but when this showed up in my knittingdaily message for the day, I was amazed.

Thanks to the advice of knitmanaic, I went directly to the two wools that I know are British and looked up where you can buy them. Then I started search for shops! Oh my, that worked quite well.
I can honestly say that although my "Down the Rabbit Hole" project is NOT shaping up in the slightest, it's not a failure.

Why does stockinette stitch curl? And what can I change

I've seen some stockinette stitch pieces that just seem to
lay perfectly flat. Mine curl immediately.
