I bought some a looooong time ago. I had a hard time with them becasue they said there was a civil war going on in Uruguay and they couldn't ship to me. I thought it was a hoax and complained to eBay. I got my yarn a couple of days afterward. The yarn I got seemed a little thicker than malabrigo but just as soft. THey must've improved on thier shipping since I bought from them.

Unless you are paying by an echeck on Paypal, I think your payment does clear instantly. I know when someone sends me a payment on Paypal, the money is in my paypal account right away. It's only when they pay through echeck that I have to wait several days, then I'll get a notice that their echeck has cleared.

my yarn arrived yesterday, but i had to pick it up. anyways, its purrrrrrty! i will take pics tomorrow (maybe tonight) and share. i will say, i was a little dissapointed in how it was 'packaged'. they did wrap each skein in tissue paper. but then they basicly took a bit of card board and wrapped it around the yarn and taped it all over to close it then shipped it as is with the stamps plastered all over instead of a single post mark.. oh well, it got here fast and safe!

well, here are the pics of the packaging and the pretty yarn! it is comparable to malabrigo! very soft and the skeins seem to be a good match ( i was a little worried about it since there are not really dye lots)

That is actually VERY PRETTY YARN!! I'd say you did good!!

I suspect the packing method was to make the package as light as possible and as long as it got there clean dry and intact it really doesn't matter what it looks like does it?
