View Full Version : YARNIA.com....have you shopped there?

Okay, I'm looking to order a hank of malabrigo online, my yarn shops don't carry it. So, have any of you shopped with Yarnia.com (http://www.yarnia.com/mahadymewoex.html)? The yarn is reasonable and they offer free shipping in the US and take PayPal, my preferred form of payment.

I just just gotta have some, after looking at Amber's scrunchable scarf, I have convinced myself that I, too, must try this yarn and have a scrunchable!!

As I'm typing I'm thinking of all of the yarn in my bedroom that needs a new rubbermaid box in which to live, I MUST organize my stash this weekend...I've got to go buy some more boxes to go under the bed :shock:

I have bought from there, and don't recall any problems.

I HATE that I can't get this yarn for my store!

The best Cincinnati LYS carries mmmmmm and just got a huge shipment in. They have an online store and the owner is really great. Here is the link (http://www.lambikins.com/cart.php?m=product_list&c=99). They have it at 10.95

I had a horrible experience with Yarnia, and afterwards, I found a few message boards about people's similar experiences with them. They did have very good prices and free shipping, which is why I ordered from them in the first place. But for the horrendous experience I got from them, it wasn't worth it. Here is a link to the Yahoo ratings (http://shopping.yahoo.com/merchrating/user_rv.html;_ylt=AnUHe76P91o9.5ImN6AeANscEb0F;_yl u=X3oDMTByMm5mbWUyBF9zAzk2Mjc2NzY0BHNlYwNtZXJjaHJl dmlldw--?merchant_id=10221559&sort_method=lowestrated)

You can find my personal experience with them if you scroll down to Sept 30, username spamme216.

I hope they've improved their service since then, but I still see some similar non-delivery of goods issues after mine.

O, and a few days after I filed a non-delivery of goods thing with my credit card company, I finally received the yarn (which is fishy, no?). It came a little over a month after I ordered it.

OMGoodness, Cindy, that's awful!! And, seems as though they have a several poor ratings at the Yahoo site..thanks for the heads up!
Looks like they were good to our Ingrid, though!
Thanks, Kemp, I'm going to check out that store.

Wow, $10.95 is a great price! I ordered mine from Yarnzilla (http://www.yarnzilla.com/) and paid $11.95 plus $5.00 shipping!!!

What color (or colors) are you getting, Rebecca?

Kemp -- why can't you get Malabrigo for your store? :(
