Very expensive Malabrigo

August 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

I can’t believe I did this! … payed the tariff on this box = 252 kr ($48) on top of the shopping prize of $85, shipping to Europe included. A total of $133 for 7 skeins of Malabrigo !!!

I guess the prize for the yarn itself ($71) is fair enough and it’s a treat to shop at Eat Sleep Knit but I didn’t expect the subsequent tariff as I have ordered and received yarn from the US before without having to pay any extra bills. The tariff was too high and $133 too much for yarn that I didn’t even have specific projects for – just wanted to check out the feel and the colors … so I decided to let it go, letting the post office keep the parcel and eventually return it to the shop.

I couldn’t get it out of my head though and after almost two weeks at the post office I picked it up –  closed my eyes and paid …

Now the box is at home, and yes, the yarn is nice but it’s still just … yarn …
I don’t even know what to make of it, what do you think?

3 skeins of Silky Merino: Cloudy Sky

2 skeins of Silky Merino: Green Grey

1 skein of Merino Worsted: Paris Night

1 skein of Rios: Glazed Carrot
