Look like this?
I came across a blog entry by Pheelya on Ramblings by a Crafter in which she had received her yarn order from a seller on Etsy and the color she received was not the color she ordered. This was very interesting to me since I had just received the yarn pictured in the top photo and I had ordered the yarn in the bottom photo, also from a vendor on Etsy. This made me wonder if it might be the same vendor. It was!
Being in business for myself, I really try hard to give the benefit of the doubt to other vendors. The last thing I ever want to do is dis a company who has honestly made a mistake. However, in this case, since there are at least two instances of this occurring within the same week, I thought it would be a courtesy to you guys to give you a heads up. I don’t believe this is a mistake though, at least in my case, because the tag on the yarn I received says “Orange Shade”. There was no packing slip or other identifying paperwork included in the package. Just three skeins of Yellow yarn.
The vendor is 100purewool and I have begun the process of trying to get my money back. The saddest part about this whole thing is that I was ordering the yarn for a specific gift for a friend’s wedding gift and after taking 22 days to arrive it was NOT the color I ordered! Luckily, I am a yarn ho(arder) and was able to find something else that would work. So, if you are looking for lace weight yarn, buyer beware.
