A box of wool and/or yarn!

User Name: visionshadows

Email address: visionshadows[at]gmail[dot]com

You can see things I've created at: Unfortunately I have no images of my stash. I promise it's all very nice. I don't buy cheap stuff.

I am offering: 2 packages of yarn and wool from my personal stash. All the wool is good for against the skin projects and includes Targhee, Merino, Romney, various blends and numerous colors. I also have raw wool that needs to be processed, but is all very nice. The yarn will vary is use depending on whether you are knitting or weaving. I am a weaver so I have more of that, but I have a lot of knitting yarn that I use as embellishments.

Starting Bid: $20 each

If you are not a spinner, just let me know! I'll be happy to send you a yarn box instead. The same goes if you just want wool.

I will pay shipping on these items! I will add as many items as can fit in a USPS regular size poly envelope. And trust me. That's quite a bit. *g*

$20 on a yarn box (envelope? ^^)!

Re: A box of wool and/or yarn!

The nice thing about the envelopes when shipping yarn and wool is that it expands much more than a box. ;)

Re: A box of wool and/or yarn!

Ohhh, yes, there is that. ^^

Re: A box of wool and/or yarn!

I'm a spinner, and this sounds lovely. :D


Re: A box of wool and/or yarn!

I forgot to mention! Since there are two boxes it's the top two bidders who win. :)

Thank you from help_haiti!

We've just notified the winning bidder(s), and asked them to connect with you directly, or with us, to confirm their donation. Once they do, you can get started on your Offering, or ship it to them, or whatever suits the circumstances. Or if you prefer, you can get in touch with the winning bidder yourself, any time.

Once a winning bidder has sent you confirmation of his or her donation, we would really appreciate it if you visited the Donation Confirmation Station at http://community.livejournal.com/help_haiti/10005.html - it will really help with our record keeping and putting together the final tally.

If you have any questions, ask them here; if you haven't heard from the Winning Bidder by Sunday, and you've tried to contact him or her yourself, let us know there, too.

Remember, we have screened replies at help_haiti for the time being, so discussion between Offeror and Winning Bidder should move out of the comm into one of your LJs, PMs, email, etc.
