handpainted wool on eBay - I can't believe the price!
Someone on another bulletin board posted about this last night and I couldn't believe it till I checked it out myself. Of course I went ahead and immediately bought some. nevermind that I just bought 6 hanks of Manos handpainted multicolor yarn yesterday....

Anyway, check out the seller 100purewool, and sort his/her wool by price (do lowest first). 3 skeins for $8!! It's like 600 yards!!! I don't know if there's a catch, if it's a mistake, or what. :thinking: But I snatched up some of that yumminess right away.

Here's the one I bought: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...tem=8231120950.

That's yummilicious yarn :drooling: !!! I am actually working with some yarn that I saw & bought on EBAy...why did I buy this yarn several months ago with no project in mind? Cause it was purdy & I liked it...and now I have the perfect project (hat to match my Branching OUt scarf i just finished). And you will have the perfect project for your yummy find

I have admired the yarn from that same seller, but have yet to purchase. I think only because I am cheap and don't want to pay for the $9.00 shipping, but I think with the cost of the yarn, it all balances out anyway. hmmm, maybe I should take a trip back to ebay!

let us know when you get it if it really is as soft as the seller claims... I don't care how good a deal yarn looks like, if it isn't soft it's not worth it (to me).

I've had that seller on my favorites list for a while but haven't ordered yet -- I just go and drool over all of the colorways -- I'd be curious to hear how soft it is too!

What does the little "c" next to the price mean?

I heard on another board that the seller ended the listings early because the prices were a typo. Bummer, I was going to get some!!!
