Yarn lovers untie!! This is an April Fool's Day swap. This swap closes on Mar 25 with deadline of Mar 30, hoping the majority will arrive on April Fool's Day (Friday, Apr 1).

Here is an opportunity to bless someone with your uglies! Do you have a peuce yellow bulky wool blend your sister bought you? Maybe a horrendous chartreuse and purple cotton you used once in a project and have some left? Let your imagination run.

This is about opening the package to find that you in fact did not send the ugliest fiber available on the planet.

This is a stash yarn swap for the "uglies".

Send 1 person 1 (or 2) skeins of U-G-L-Y yarn from your personal stash. Remember quality. Ugly could be a color, texture or type you don't like. Natural fibers strongly prefered, acrylics will be allowed for this swap.

Partial skeins acceptable if the combined weight/amount is at least 150 yards or 50 grams.

Swap materials must be clean, free of debris and odor.

No ratings of 3 or less in last 6 months. Newbies welcome with fully filled out profile.

Regional to North America, US, Canada & Mexico. PM me if you want to do an International swap with me.

I originally have this in the CRKnits group under June - the month of UGLIES. It seems more appropriate for April 1st. :)

LOL! Cute swap idea. Unfortunately, all I have to trade are partial skeins. Love the idea, though!

Partial skeins work for me...if you have enough to make a signicant package. I'll change the listing to include partial skeins totalling at least 150 yds or 50 grams...sound good?

Hey, thanks! :-D

Gah! After all that, I realized I won't be able to make it to the post office this week. :-( So sorry! Hope you guys have fun! I still love the swap idea. Maybe next year.
