Click here to see photos!
(Not all yarn is photographed; nevertheless, full listings are below)

My yarn stash is smaller, thanks to a sale earlier this fall, but there's more that I know I won't use in the next...let's say few years.

Thanks to Caitlyn -- whose stash I have bought in the past, and whose destashing blog has inspired mine.

Please read these important details about my de-stashing:

  1. All yarns come from a non-smoking home and are brand new unless otherwise noted. All yarn has been acquired in the last two years. I do own cats, though the yarn is safely stored in plastic bins or a wood dresser.

  2. Yarn with photos available have links on their name. I'm working on photographing more of the yarn for sale. To see all the yarn with a brief description, view my Photobucket album.

  3. Prices shown DO NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING. Given prices are for all the yarn in that listing; contact me if you want to buy fewer skeins. I will ship to U.S. and Canada via USPS (Priority or parcel) or FedEx. Insurance is optional. Please be forewarned that I am NOT responsible for uninsured packages that are lost in the mail.

  4. I prefer BANK ACCOUNT (debit) funded Paypal. I will also take money orders, and I will ship as soon as payment is received.

If you are interested or have questions (such as what I was planning to make with the yarn, or when/where I got it), please email me at laurafletcher AT gmail DOT com. Thanks for looking!

(SPOKEN FOR means the transaction is in the works but not finalized. A listing that has strikethrough text means it's gone.)
