Fancy designer yarn...oooh!

This yarn offer is taken and is no longer available.

Dive into this: 13 brand-spankin' new skeins of Bouton d'Or Dune in Ecarlate 192 and 1 skein in white (for hem, cuff and collar trim). Oooh! Haute designer yarn! 60% cotton, 40% acrylic. Machine-washable. 8 US (5mm) needles, 15 sts and 24 rows 4"x4" (10x10 cm) square. 1.76 oz (50 grams) in each skein, 69 yds (63 m).

This yarn has been marinating in the stash for almost two years, so up it goes! It's not discontinued and I can still get it at my local Anny Blatt/Bouton d'Or boutique if I want. This is the project I had in mind when I bought this yarn:

Woman's "Gardine" cabled cardi from Bouton d'Or Printemps-Ete catalog No. 76 (14 skeins makes up to and including sizes 6-8)

NOTE: I do not usually provide patterns or books with my stash yarns. However, I was given a xerox copy of this particular pattern by my local Bouton d'Or boutique when I bought the yarn for this project. Therefore, I will turn over the copy to whom I send the yarn. The patterns I usually get are in French, but HAPPY SURPRISE! THIS PARTICULAR PATTERN IS IN ENGLISH. Can you stand it?

Oooh! Fancy French yarn!

This yarn usually sells for 4.50 euros per skein over here, depending on where you get it...that's how much my local Anny Blatt/Bouton d'Or boutique charges for it, but I know that Le Bon Marche in Paris sells it for a bit higher. I got this batch for 10% off at 57 euros, and that's what I'm offering it for. (Regular price in America for this yarn is 8-12 euros per skein plus tax. Even with shipping you'd get this yarn from me - with the bonus of the pattern in English - for 40-50 percent off.) Priority shipping + packaging is approximately 16 euros to America and 11 euros within Europe. Surface shipping is approximately 12 euros to America and 9 euros within Europe. Shipping costs are approximate and subject to change. You also have the option of my sending it registered for an additional 5 euros, which I highly recommend (and may require if I've never shipped to you before) as yarn losses are NOT reimbursed or replaced, and funds are not refunded in any event. If sent registered the priority shipping option must be taken.
