***BFL Coop!***CANCELLED :(
Quote:
BFL (blue faced Leicester)
Anyways, there are several different weights, Aran, Sock, DK, Bulky ... all are 70.- per 1 kilo cone or 75.- per 10 100 gr (approx 3.5 oz) skeins. Skeins have to be ordered in 10s, but you can easily split them with someone else.

Same as before, cones are 70.- per kilo including shipping to me, skeins are 10x100 grams (10x3.5 oz) for 75.- including shipping to me. If you do NOT want your yarn skeined in those increments, please order a cone and make a note for me in the database. The price will be the same as it is for yarn skeined at the mill, but you can let me know how you want yours skeined and I will do it for you. There are roughly 33 oz per cone.

You can get Aran, Bulky, Sock, DK, Sport... but it really depends on what he has. If DK is out and it might be weeks before he has it again, you might have to change your order or wait until the next co-op (that's what happened with this round, he was totally out of Bulky for example)

This closes 9/30 with payments due at this point. DO NOT send payment before I call for them.
Yes, all undyed. We're getting it straight from the manufacturer

Conny
anyone interested? let me know. this is a fairly quick- going order, but she is leaving it open to a specific date as there is no minimum order. if anything, i was thinking we could order a couple of skeins sets and split them.
Since this is a simple coop (no colorways) I will start a KH blog if there is anyone interested.

Could you explain what a coop is? I'm totally clueless about this.

I am waiting on an answer about it being superwash or not... she hasn't answered the question yet... maybe today?

a coop is when a group of people get together and make a large group purchase in order to get lower (sometime wholesale) pricing on things. in our case it's yarn. i checked out wool2dye4 prices for the sport weight of the BFL to compare prices. her price for a 1 kilo cone is $82. so you'd save $12.

Which Sock is it? The Ultra or the SuperSock? I am looking for something to knit my chuppah out of and don't want something in merino.
