I see your point...and I have also heard the point "it is cheap, you get what you pay for" which I understand...

But I have to wonder...if you are going to put your (in the case the company) name on something, does it not stand to reason that it should be a good enough quality to feel good about. I would hate to put my name to something that would get more than its fair share of complaint letters....even if it does sell for its price....

I don't know...I am of two minds...Either way...for the most point...I know I will not buy certain lines of these yarns simply on reputation alone!
