Fluffy Myriade!

This yarn offer is taken and is no longer available.

Join me in the fluffy knitting! 5 brand-spankin' new skeins of Phildar Myriade in NATUREL. 60% Egyptian cotton, 40% acrylic. Machine-washable. 7 US (4.5mm) needles, 16 sts and 19 rows 4"x4" (10x10 cm) square. 1.76 oz (50 grams) in each skein, 93yds (90 m).

I used this yarn to knit myself a fluffy scarf and a hat this winter. It is incredibly soft and easy to knit. After I knit the hat and scarf, I decided to buy this batch of yarn and the Accessoires catalog so I could knit myself a FLUFFY BOLERO, but I think I've filled my fluffy bolero ration with my Amelie Bolero. So I'm sharing this batch with you! Here's the bolero I had planned on knitting:

Fluffy Bolero from Phildar Accessoires 2005-2006. 5 skeins makes up to and including size 38/40, medium.

Or, you can use the yarn to make this hat and scarf from the same catalog. Five skeins makes the set.

BONUS: I can send you my copy of this Accessoires catalog IN FRENCH ONLY (no English translation, sorry) for 8 euros more. That covers the cost of the pattern book and the additional weight in shipping, nothing more. This bonus is optional, of course. You can just take the yarn if you want. (However, the book is not available unless taken with the yarn.)

Oooh! Fluffiness!

The average price for this yarn in France is about 4.90-5 euros a skein. I'm sharing this batch of yarn for 4.90 euros a skein, which is what I paid for it. Total cost is only 24.50 euros + shipping. (If you want the book as well, add 8 euros to the total.) Priority shipping is approximately 12.50 euros to America and 9 euros within Europe. Surface shipping is 8.50 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 or replaced, and funds are not refunded in any event.
