Anybody have any experience with ordering yarn from
www.yarn-paradise.com ? It looks way too cheap to be true. Also they list prices as $9.5 not $9.50.... makes me think its foreign even though the price is in dollars. Which is not necessarily bad just kinda weird. I'm thinking of ordering some angora/acrylic/wool for $9.5 (!) for 8 balls 50 g each...
$7.50 for shipping. Whadya think?:oo:

The site has testimonials that read positively. It would be good to hear feedback from someone on KH but the prices are way good! I don't see the missing zero as a problematic really. It may simply be a space saver. I would watch that on the shopping cart however.

It does look like they have some good deals. I order online all the time but buying from Turkey would make me a little nervous.

Hi-
I order from them all the time-absolutely not a think to worry about!
The postage is higher than the cost of the yarn,but it is coming from turkey-and I found it gets here pretty fast,even if it is the regual mail-sometimes in about 10 days.
just pay attention to the fibre content in the yarn you select-I have made poor choices ,and some suprisingly excellent ones-the cost of the yarns does not relect the quality.
Good luck!

Yes, I have purchased yarn from them and generally it is as claimes except that as always, photos of colors my be somewhat off. My first time was a problem as they no longer had the color of one of my purchases and would not issue a credit and substituted another color but have not had that occur and have made other purchases for which I was totally happy and a friend in my group made a purchase of a mohair with sequins that I used for a scarf and was very happy so just pay attention to the yardage quoted so that you purchase enough. I have bought about $100 so far ans would not hesitate to recommend them.

I have also bought some from Yarn Paradise I also included some of the yarn I bought from them in a swap on the Knitting Paradise forum. My swap partner was on a limited budget and couldn't get out , so shopping for yarn for her meant Red Heart or Caron at Walmart.
She was ecstatic over it. I sent 3 balls each of the two colors I bought.

This thread is over 5 yrs old. I'm guessing she may have bought the yarn by now. :lol:
