Phildar Phil Peluche!

Update: This yarn offer has been taken and is no longer available.

Dive into this: 8 brand spankin' new skeins of Phildar's Phil Peluche in Chartreuse. Pretty apple green color and very soft yarn. 90% acrylic, 10% polyamide. And it's machine-washable! (I'd use the delicate cycle, though.) 5-6 US (3.5-4mm) needles, 31 rows and 19 sts 4"x4" (10x10 cm) square. 1.76 oz (50 grams) in each skein, 93 yds (86 m). This yarn has not been discontinued, and it is, in fact, one of Phildar's longstanding novelty-type yarns. But lucky you! Every time I rethink my project lineup for the season chances are a project's worth of yarn gets put up here in order to give someone else the chance to knit it. This is why I had bought the yarn:

Cute scoop-necked sweater with 3/4 sleeves from Phildar Automne 2004. (8 skeins makes up to size 34/36). And someday I will knit this! (Just not this season. I need more knitting hands.)

Any Phildar patterns I mention are not included, and I do not provide them. They are here for inspiration purposes only. (Further, I don't know where back issues can be found. Please contact Phildar or a Phildar supplier directly for any pattern books you may want or need.) However, if you are unable to obtain the pattern book mentioned above but you want to knit this sweater - and only if I send you this yarn - I'll might be able to help out. We'll discuss if I send you the yarn.

Soft! Fluffy!

The average price for this yarn in France is 4.70-5 euros a skein, and costs a lot more in stores abroad, if available. I'm sharing this batch of yarn for 4.70 euros a skein. Total cost is only 37.60 euros + shipping. Priority shipping is approximately 13 euros to America and 9 euros within Europe. Surface shipping is 9 euros to America and 7 euros within Europe. Shipping costs are approximate and subject to change. You also have the option of my sending it certified for an additional cost, which I highly recommend (and will require if I've never shipped to you before) as yarn losses are NOT reimbursed.
