I've heard people that have bought from them directly from their website have said it takes a long time for the items to ship. I've never ordered from them personally though.

I just looked at the comments people offered and the positive far outweigh the negative. I have such a problem though with the way ebay themselves have so often failed customer issues that I refuse to use them out of principle but friends and family do and so far mostly all happy. They do all check those comments ratings though.

I would allow 4-6 weeks for shipping. I have not ordered yarn from this paticular site but I have ordered yarn from Australia nad another seller in Uraguay and both took over a month.

I haven't ordered from them yet but have their website bookmarked. I've read on these boards before about them.
Btw, I noticed that the yarn appears to be $1 less on their website - http://www.100purewool.com

ETA - I searched for 100purewool in the forum and here is the result. There might be some info there about shipping

I've bought yarn from them, but it was through a co-op, so I expected a little longer ship time. It wasn't more than a month though.

That said, their yarn is AMAZING. Every bit as soft and wonderful as Malabrigo, but a wee bit finer. AMAZING, I say -- I would buy a roomful if I could. One of my very favorite yarns ever.

(It's the yarn I used for this sweater -- so nice for cables!)

I have heard that some ebay vendors WAIT til your payment actually clears and is in their bank. What payments are the type that take longer to clear and show up in their bank: Paypal payments where the funds come from a checking or savings account instead of a (instant) credit card. The Paypal payment that comes from a checking account is looked at as an E-check. That is what an ebay vendor told me. BUT, that said, some ebay vendors will ship same day regardless.

Yes, that's true -- in fact, the seller is NOT protected unless they do wait for payment to clear.

Seller protection is slim compared to buyer protection (don't get me started on 'not as described' which can include all sorts of imaginary and far-reaching assumptions on the part of a buyer), so I'd be surprised to see folks shipping before funds are released.

Hi Annyka! I guess I am a "preferred customer"! I can think of 6 vendors that ship to me the same day, or day after. I always use Paypal the instant I win or purchase a BUY IT NOW!
