3. Once I accept your offer, you have 48 hours to PayPal me. If you do not do so, the yarn goes to the next taker.

4. Prices are for USPS priority mail shipping 2 to 3 day service to most domestic destinations) in the US and Canada only. Sorry, I'm not shipping internationally.

5. I am not responsible for loss. I will insure your package, at an additional cost to you.

6. As a general rule, sales are on a first-come, first-served basis, but I reserve the right to sell to whomever I wish. I will continue to take offers until I receive payment, so don't be alarmed if your yarn doesn't immediately show up as "sold".

7. All yarns of the same type are from the same lot and have been well taken care of in a non-smoking home. We have cats. While I do not allow Mick and Bowie to roll in my stash, you may find the stray pet hair.
