Yarn Paradise

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

Mine took a day. It says 3/4 for Europe but it is much faster than that!

OK. So, thanks to Morlyte, I now know what happens when you order through that site...

You place the order.

Your order goes to me
THen I send the order to them and pay them.

Which is, not all all what I thought it was. Hahaha. I can set the prices, so rather than having a discount code, I can set the prices 15% cheaper. It is a bit of a faff though for me...I don't know what to do. I want the discounts and i want you all to get cheap yarn, but it might be faster to go through the main website and use the code, but we might lose the code if I am not using my website...who knows.

Oh and the discount code only appears to work on the main site, so that is how sellers would get a kickback. Morlyte - I refunded you the difference.

So I'm guessing my order didn't work re discount but at £1 per ball of cotton inc p&p I don't really care about the discount....

yeah, that is kind of my thoughts...its so cheap anyway I may be too lazy to do any extra work for it. Plus the blokes in Turkey are a bit of a PITA and don't read their emails.

Thanks for that Kat! Although, even without the discount code, 12 balls of yarn for £20 is just fabtastic!

Holy cow -- I've avoided looking at this thread but just looked at the Garage Sale and :scream ! How can they be so cheap? I feel like there must be some kind of hamster wheel with orphans involved, or that all the yarn is secretly made out of corn syrup and DDT.

I know what you mean. Adding my new yarn to ravelry I noticed that a lot of the brand I'd bought was discontinued so maybe that's why it's so cheap?
