If you love something, let it go… and other clichés. The grand de-stashing has begun! I’ve actually ended up being fairly ruthless and turfed out a lot of yarn on the basis that I don’t have any specific project in mind for it. It might be gorgeous, but unfortunately, I need the cash more. You see, a few things happened, including my washing machine having a very dramatic last hoorah (it was trying to throw itself out the kitchen window, I’m sure of it) and now I’m kind of hideously broke. The yarn, she is not necessary. So, here goes. I’m not putting pictures up in this entry because it would get too big, but there are links so you can click through to the photos. Or if you like you can jump to the yarn sale section of my photo album – all pictures but two are there.
Is what’s below everything that I’m clearing out? Well, no. As it just so happens, I’ve got some more yarn on eBay. And I’m also destashing some of my knitting books. I’ll make another post about those!
Anyway, all should be fairly obvious. I’ve laid it out so that you have the yarn brand and name, the colour (linked to a photo), the grams / yards per ball or skein, how many balls or skeins are available, and finally, the price. Postage information is at the bottom.

Postage works pretty much like this: I’ve worked it out based on the weight of the yarn (+ a little bit for that of the packaging which generally makes no difference) on the Royal Mail website and added in the cost of the envelope. I’ve gone for 1st Class / Airmail prices, but I can work out 2nd Class or Surface Mail if you’d prefer.
