Phildar Phil Ruban? Oh, alright.

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

Dive into this lot of lovelies: 8 brand-spankin' new skeins of Phildar Phil Ruban in Horizon, one of my favorite ribbon yarns of all time. Horizon is a very subtle variegated blue. 100% cotton. Machine-washable. 8 US (5mm) needles, 17 sts and 21 rows 4"x4" (10x10 cm) square. 1.76 oz (50 grams) in each skein, 105 yds (96 m). It's no secret that I went bonkers buying up all the discontinued Phil Ruban in my city, and as I can't possibly knit all of the Phil Ruban I bought all by myself, I'm sharing what I won't be able to knit this year. Sob! (I need more knitting hands and/or more knitting time.)

A little inspiration for this Phil Ruban:

Sexy quick-knit halter from Phildar Facile 2002 catalog (4 skeins makes up to the largest size, with 4 to spare!)

Shapely tunic from Phildar Sportswear 2002 catalog (8 skeins makes up to and including the XL size!)

Sleeveless top from Phildar Evasion 2003 (5 skeins makes up to size 42/44 with 3 to spare).

Sleeveless v-neck tank from Phildar Printemps Tendances 2003 (5 skeins makes up to size 38/40 with 3 to spare, and that ruffle is optional. Hee!)

The patterns mentioned above are not included, and I do not provide them. (And I don't know where the back issues can be found.) However, to whomever I decide to send the yarn I will include a text-only translation of the sexy halter OR the pattern of the tunic in French. (There's no translation for the tunic, and I am unable to provide the other patterns in any version.)

Oh la laaaaaaaa! Fancy French ribbon yarn!
[Colors may show up differently on some browsers.]

I'm sharing this entire batch of yarn for 36 euros, including one of the two patterns mentioned in the preceding paragraph, plus shipping. Priority shipping is approximately 13 euros to America and 11 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 registered 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. If sent registered, the priority shipping option will have to be taken as surface shipping cannot be registered.
