I placed 3 orders with The Yarn and Fiber Company, one in October, one in November and one last week. The order from last week has arrived but the other 2 orders are still on back order. Prior to these purchases, I’ve never bought anything on back order before so I’ve no idea how long one usually has to wait. Whatever it is, I certainly wasn’t expecting to wait for more than 2 months. Oh well.
What I really like about The Yarn and Fiber Company is that they’re really responsive, however, many of the yarn in specific colours that I’m interested in ordering seems to be on back order. But they have really low prices and free international shipping!
On to the yarn! So what did I buy?
Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran (colour 300101) x 3
Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (colour Bristol Red) x 5
I’m a little sensitive to wool but the Silky Wool feels really good so far although it’s still too early to say. Plus, I really like the slightly tweedy texture. I was trying to decide between Bristol Red and Claret but I couldn’t see much difference on my monitor. I wish I could get some colour cards though. Anyone knows how the Claret differs in the shade of red to Bristol Red?And yes, I already know what to knit with this yarn!
