Description:

This swap is for those of us who just can't get enough yarn! This month's color is PURPLE.

It's very important that this be a good experience for everyone involved!! If you are new to Swap-Bot you must have a complete profile tobe able to participate. If you have a rating of 4.85 or below I'm sorry, but this swap is not for you. Absolutely NO no-sends.

This will be a monthly swap. Each month a color of yarn will be assigned and you will send that specific color of yarn to your assigned partner. By the end of 12 months you will have a whole year's worth of colors! You must sign up each month you wish to participate.

Requirements: $20.00 YARN minimum please. NO cheap acrylics! This includes cheap yarn that can be purchased at big box stores as well as dishcloth cotton. Please think LYS quality yarns. If you don't have a LYS there is etsy.com as well as a ton of incredible online stores that provide amazing service. Natural fibers or natural blends only please.

Any shade of this month's color is fine as is a blend with this month's color as the main color. GET CREATIVE!!! Send a unique yarn or blend that you think your partner might enjoy!!

You're more than welcome to send along a favorite pattern or some other little "goody" if you'd like but it is not required and should not be expected. Again, please make sure the YARN is worth at least $20.00. Handspun/dyed yarns are great, but please make sure you send at least what you would consider $20.00 worth and include a label with the yarn describing the content and care. Absolutely no used or partial skeins of yarn please!

Please no light purple for me if you can help it - I love rich, dark colors!

Does the 20.00 minimum mean per skein, or package? I only buy LYS yarn (yarn snob and proud of it!) the average seems to be about $8 - $12 per skein for good yarn and it's nice to get 2-3 skeins so you can do more than a 1 skein project out of it. Is that ok?

For my wish list, I also don't like the pastels very much, but the darker colors. I am once again into the novelty yarns because I have been making chunky scarves that I mix the novelty with some wool on size 35 needles! I would welcome two skeins of the average price novelty yarn over 1 skein 20.00 yarn, if that's ok with the rules and ok with my partner! Of course, I am grateful for any yarn I receive. Thanks!!
