Here is my post on my blog (so I don't have to re-type all about it):
Two days ago I came home and much to my delight there was a box full of yarn from 100purewool! This wool is soooooo soft and beautiful! I am in love (don't tell the BF, he'll get jealous) he, he!
Anywooooo, I immediately cast on with the Anuk which is a purple and brown mix, and made my eyes water with happiness just looking at it. I cast on Silver's Palindrome Hat and it looks awesome! Of course I'm only 7 rows in, but MAN it looks good. The yarn is going to be sooooo warm. The BF and Little jr. can't keep their hand off of the yarn, which is fine except when I'm knitting (or trying to knit) and they keep trying to feel the working yarn......aaarrrrggghhhhh! Lol, at least they have good taste in yarn. oooooh 100purewool, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.....
Well, here is a list of what I bought from the co-op:
2 skeins of festival
3 skeins of Padua
3 skeins of Anuk
3 skeins of Dorado & Carmesi
3 skeins of Poisen
2 skeins of Mysterious
I will have to take pictures of the yarn, it's so SO beautiful, I want to share it with the world....visually, of course.

If you have a delivery confirmation from me, then your yarn has been shipped.
I am so sorry for anyone that is put out by this, we were not expecting her to go in for surgery until later this week. Please keep her in your prayers for a good diagnosis and swift recovery, that that the doctors hands are steady and strong, and that her two young kids feel safe.

yarn addicts - this is the group i belong to! i really encourage anyone interested in ordering through a coop to join. it would be cheaper that me placing orders (no 'double' shipping) and then you to pick and choose from all the different coop buys. Plus lots of other members are part of other coops and usually tell our group when they are open, so we can join in too. I love this whole coop process. such a great way to afford nice yarn at great prices!

the fed ex delivered this morning, so i'll be processing today/tomorrow ;)
Please check your shipping totals!
Again, PLEASE verify the costs on USPS site by entering my zip code,98387, and your skeins weight total (# of skeins x 3.5 ounces)
Cando did all the math for us, and added the 3% and $.30 fee (from paypal), delivery confirmation and your portion from the initial shipping to me.
If you have any questions, PM me on KH. You could also email me or just post a message here (a post would get a faster response as opposed to a comment on a post- easier for me to notice ;)
i am so excited!!!!!!

Curlytoot- I'll ship your flat rate also (to the NY address, so add 9.60 for a total of $20.55)
PLEASE!!! Check your KH PM box too for messages about shipping. My zip code is 98387 if you want to check shipping totals. I'll be asking for emails with your mailing address. It's easier for me than searching Paypal for each one. Thanks for your patience, the end is near! :yay:
The yarn should (hopefully) be here by Saturday, and I 'll ship it the next day or so :)
****Please click on the image to see it in its entirety!****
Here's the spreadsheet with shipping details which might be of help to you. A couple of things you should know -
1. I'm assuming you can stuff the priority flat rate box with as many as 16 skeins of yarn. I also added delivery confirmation to every order. If anyone needs insurance (I don't) then you can add $1.65 to any order for upto $50 insurance.
2. I didn't put any option for Curlytoot as she is international and I don't know which country. She is in red.
3. In the bottom, I've calculated the per skein cost of shipping via Fedex to you, then applied it to each order per order weight. Assuming that's the way you were planning to do it as it's the most easy and fair to everyone?
Anyway, let me know if you have any questions. Total shipping comes close to being same as if ordered directly from the website for the smaller orders, and bigger orders are a little less. Yay!

rate chart here
this definantly looks like the cheapest route. any objections?
you can figure your rates by multiplying the # of skeins you ordered by 3.5 ounces.
Saturday, October 6, 2007
Hi Jeanie - ok your shipping total comes to: $163.18 Fedex ground shipping was the cheapest way - and it's kind of nice b/c they insure their packages automatically I believe.
Just LMK when you are going to pay and I will get the shipping labels ready.
I will pay this today, and as soon as it gets to me i will sort and ship your orders. I am thinking flat rate, to keep it simple. Any objections?

Ok, this is going to sound like a vent, and it sorta is...
I'm very disappointed at the moment. After the last emails with Andy, he had no problem letting this last co-op run until the end of October when the Bulky was going to be done... well, he just gave me a new timeframe, and it looks like the yarn won't be ready for another 6-8 weeks. At the same time he also told me to please wrap this co-op up now, because it's not fair to Sheila to hold off placing the order for so long...
While I totally understand his point of view, I'm also incredibly upset and disappointed. We all know that Customer Service has been lacking lately. This is one of the main reasons why Andy no longer ships to individuals, but has decided to appoint distributors in the US who will handle the influx of yarn. Great idea, it really is... at least for those of us with biz licenses, because we can still get our yarn at wholesale through www.wool2dye4.com (Sheila is really great to work with!!).. Not so great for those of you who were getting it at slightly higher then wholesale prices... But in a way I feel betrayed. He's gone back on his word with regards to this co-op, and I'm actually a little hurt by it (sad, huh??)
The point I'm trying to make is this... I'm tired. I really don't enjoy the run around I'm getting. I sent Andy a list of what was in the database right now and there are only 20 skeins of Bulky available, and I don't really remember what else was missing... The point I'm trying to make is this..
It's time that we say goodbye to our relationship with Andy as a co-op. I think if we just drop this co-op and invest our money either through Sheila as well as US fiber producers, it'll be better for all of us. Especially those of you who were getting a ton of yarn for your stores anyways. This way you won't have to wait until next month... A lot of us are WAHMs and we depend on a steady influx of product into our stores... Unfortunately we haven't been able to count on that as far as the BFL is concerned...I'm still going to be in contact with him because I really really want the yarn to be spun that he and I have been talking about. But the fact is, those of you who ordered Bulky won't be getting it, because it's just not instock. I can't remember if the sock is ready or not, I think he was going to get back with me on this.. So a good half of the ppl who were going to place an order, won't be getting any, or missing most of what they needed.
At this time, I'd say lets just drop the co-op altogether and instead place a killer order with Brad at Wooly Wonders by Nada (I'm getting ready to set the database up, just need to check on a couple of things)...
Please do not be angry or upset at Andy (or myself..lol)... I just cannot deal with this anymore. I try to run a pretty tight ship when running co-ops, and this is just throwing me way off... I have Swifts/Winders going, as well as the Valley Yarns on Yarnaddicts (going to open it on hcd as well). WWbN is getting ready as well.
So please do not be upset but I'm going to delete the BFL databases in a few days. If you have any questions regarding getting your yarn from Sheila at w2d4 for your store, please contact her personally.
YarnDoc, I'll be refunding your paymment. this makes me so sad!

Payments funded by PayPal Balance, PayPal Instant Transfer or PayPal eCheck, Credit Card, Debit Card or Buyer Credit
fee are-3% +$.30
When Leah ships the yarn to me, I'll cover that cost.
The shipping fees for you will be your actual shipping fee + your portion of the cost to me + the paypal fee.
What sucked about sending her the monies last time, was that I didn't check the fees from paypal and ended up having to send her an additional $25 on my credit card. I am just trying to avoid that again :)

Hi - PW has been shipped - shipped on the 21st and it usually takes
about 1 to 1 1/2 weeks to get to me.
after she gets it, she'll separate, package call for shipping payments, then i'll get it and separate out each order. I'll use the address i have on hand through the paypal payment. If you have a different address for me to ship to, let me know

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
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. the sock yarn is superwash.
these yardages are approximate! not exact.. hope this helps! (this yardage is per kilo)

great question! their shipping prices are very reasonable. the coop admin will place the order (ours, and the other coop members) and then she breaks it down and sends it out.she does 2 payments:
1st Payment: Just your yarn/product total
2nd Payment: Shipping from company (divided up) + shipping from me to you(she'll mail our group order to me) + coop fee($1)
this is the plan:
- A.place orders, get totals (i send payment to coop, you send payment to me)
- B.divide my 2nd payment by our # of ppl
- C.figure ACTUAL shipping for each order
add B and C for each person, and you send payment to me, i send yarn to you
My family will be traveling to California, leaving very early tomorrow morning. I have made marykz an administrator, so she will be able to send invites. (Thank you marykz for volunteering!) If you need an invite to be an author, please PM marykz through KH. You will need to give her your email address for the invite to be sent to. Please place your order here (see the other entries for how to!) Please read the info given here before asking. And note that marykz IS NOT a member of the coop, just an admin for this blog. Thanks, and happy shopping ;)
I'd like 4 of the 3ply merino in the Sea colorway
4 of the 3 ply merino in the chocolate colorway (is it chocolate? the site is down right now)
I'm waffling on the superbulky- anyone tried it before?
Jeanious let me know if you need help- I'm sure I could figure it out if I had to. Marykz

For people who have never ordered Pure Wool, this is the softest wool you have ever felt, even dyed. We can order dyed and undyed. We can order any colorway in any type of yarn. I have made sure of this as I know with HPY it wasn't the case last time. So, if there is a colorway you like you are able to order it in any type of yarn.from Leah, the coop boss :)
A quick statement about colorways - please realize that Pure Wool, although a great company, can have some differences between what is pictured on the website and what we get. I had several colorways last time that looked very off. This being said just take caution in what you order. Most of their colorways duplicate nicely, but sometimes it just doesn't happen.
I would like the following in 1 ply merino:
4 skeins Festival
1 skein Chagall Night
I would offer to be an admin, but I've barely used Blogger, so I'd probably screw up the invites. I'm available in a pinch, though.
