I just ordered some yarn from them off of ebay. I meant to say I like the color. The yarn is mostly as described. I haven't knit with it, so I can't attest to the quality. But I would order from them again. Fast delivery too.

The colours look great!

And...I know this is completely off topic but I've been wondering about this for a long time, how much is a yard anyway?

Does one feet equal to 30 cm? So one yard is 0.9 m? Squared?

Sorry about all these questions all at once
