I bought this recycled cashmere online a while back. I am in no way dissing the seller of this yarn. It is me that I think is an idiot. First off lets start by saying that colors that you see on a computer screen are not true to life. I won't go into the mechanics of why but just believe me. So, what made me think that if I bought the color I saw on my screen that it would be THAT color. As a matter of fact, you aren't seeing the color that this yarn really is. Take my word for it that it is ugly. Ok, now that isn't my only issue. I bought this recycled cashmere because I thought in this life I would actually do something with this yarn. No, I won't. I lied to myself and to "Mr. Yarn" (ok, it wasn't exactly a lie, more of a denial thing).
The worse part of it is that I didn't even really read her description because IF I did I would have known that the yarn that *I* choose to buy was not even recycled from a sweater from Europe or from a fancy store. MY yarn when it arrived came with the original label.
Folks....Costco. For my imaginary friends that don't have Costco's in their area just assume that this isn't a good thing.
