I just bought the most BEAUTIFUL yarn I have every seen!!!!!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=012&item=220019176969&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&rd=1

This lady has really good customer service. She even sent me a free skein of yarn and samples of all of her other yarn!!! OMG I am going to buy as much as I can from her!!!!!!!!

The pictures of the yarn are soooooo pretty but it does even COMPARE to the really thing!!!!!! I don't have words for it. The colors are just freakin' AMAZING.....I am so excited I want to so everyone. I wish I had a camera that would show all of you the true colors of this yarn, they are soooo vibrant!!! It kind of reminds me of Noro, but with more umph.

I saw it (so did my neighbor) and all we could say is "OMG, OMG, OMG" This is the best yarngasam I've ever had!!!!!!!!!! :woot: :woot: :woot: :notworthy: :muah: :woohoo:

I am going to try to get pictures with the digital camera I have at work tomorrow and post them. Hopefully I can get pics that show the true colors....

This yarn is 2 ply, I want to make the Fiber Trends Clogs out of it. But on the pattern I think it says 10 ply. What do you guys think, can I do it?

That is some beautiful stuff!!! :inlove: The ply count is just how many strands are twisted together. You need worsted weight--4 or so stitches per inch. Compare your new beautiful stuff to other worsted and see if it's as thick.

You can have 2 ply yarn that's as thick as garden hose or as thin as a spider web.

That is some gorgeous yarn. She makes beautiful stuff. Really makes me want to learn how to dye. I wish more yarn came in those sets, I'd love to make sweaters with it.

I e-mailed her thanking her for the yarn. I'm pretty sure she will do custom orders, and she told me that she has a lot of single color wool, and if I need any just to let her know.

Is the yarn soft? Or is it more appropriate for felting?

The colors are stunning!

I think it's not too scratchy, but i am going to use it to felt. The extra skein she sent me is below...in a really bad I'm pretty sure out of focus picture. Again my camera phone doesn't do it justice, it is a very pretty camel color.

Yes, is it soft? So far, I can only stand to have baby alpaca next to my skin. I love the colorways she offers! Yours is stunning. Congratulations!
