Lot A has sold
Lot B - Flamingo & Omnica German poly acrylic, just about sport
weight -- by Staffen. The reds look the same, but they're not. The
red variegated coordinates with the red that's in the same bag. One
of the other 2 red bags also match. The lavender coordinates with the
variegated yarn next to it. I would like to sell the variegated with
coordinating yarn. $1 per ball (50g), 10 for $9. Six bags (60 balls)
Lot C - Fine 2-ply German Dralon. $8 per pound or 10 pounds for $70
(except for Dralon with linen). Most hanks are about half a pound
each. Fine as it is, this yarn has nice puffy feel. The dark colors
don't show up well in the photo. Upper left is black. To its right is
red/black tweed. Lower right beneath pink is forest green. To its
left looks purple, but it has another warm color in the twist (maybe
rust) that gives it a tweedy look. (The 3rd photo to the right shows
the colors.) The white on the far left is crimped. The light russet
next to the blue is Dralon with linen. The ball of russet above the
white is from a bag (about 14 oz) of wound yarn. It will be included
free to the first person who buys 10 pounds. Take all (about 21
pounds) for $120
G - German wool yarn $4 per skein (100g). This is new vintage yarn
from a former at-home business (not mine). This wool is wonderfully
squishy and the colors are beautiful. Left - bulky: the blue tweed
coordinates with the white and both blues. The earth tones tweed
coordinates with white. Take all the bulky (39 skeins) for $120.
Right - worsted: (sport is what the importer calls it). The peacock
is spectacular. 2 balls of pink are not in the photo. Take all the
heavy worsted (54 skeins) for $160. Take everything for $250. That's
less than $2.70 per skein for this fabulous yarn.
H - Nanga-Parbat is German wool from Subita. These are odd balls,
worsted weight and 50g each. There's a total of just under 2 pounds
for $25. For the curious: Nanga-Parbat is the 9th highest mountain on
earth. Located in Pakistan, it means "Naked Mountain."
