Color Blindness

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.

  1. Either that vendor has major monitor problems or need to have a good check up at the eye clinic. AND I love the picture change on your blog header! I think I have seen that particular piece before, LOL!

  2. I ordered some laceweight yarn from them via the etsy site and when I received my order I ended up with a skein of single-ply worsted instead of the 900 yds of laceweight I thought I was getting!

    My yarn had no tags and there was no packing slip…just the skein of yarn in an envelope, so no proof of what I had even ordered.

    I’ll use it, but I was very disappointed that I got something completely different from what I was expecting.

Is anybody out there?
