Hello to all you marvellous creative types I hope you have all had a fabulous week! Well, we have had some lovely sunshine in North-East England this week (I must point out that this is a very occurrence round these parts).
Often whilst scouring EBay for scrumptious low cost yarns I have encountered a brand of yarn previously unheard of by myself, they are Ice Yarns!! So being curious I decided to enquire about them with my old pal Google at my side. Soon after I began an investigation into said Yarns and became rather excited in doing so.
Ice Yarns are from Turkey and not only do they have a vast range of acrylics and cottons, they sell my coveted Alpaca as well as Camel ( yes….camel), silk and wait for it (ensue imaginary drumroll building tension) Cashmere. All for unbelievably low prices.
At first my logical brain went all “let’s kill the excitement here…something’s not right” which I did not appreciate, I was having fun after all. Then, Mr Google stepped in and was all proactive shouting “check out some reviews before you judge them”, so I did and it was a big finger in the face to my logical brain….all reviews told of lovely yarns at low prices and you buy in bulk for said low prices, for example, six 50g balls which is 160m per ball of Pure Alpaca for £10.35!
After careful deliberation (which took roughly 30 seconds), I decided to take the plunge and ordered myself a couple of bags of yarn to try out. I decided in the end to try out, yes you guessed it, the 100% Pure Alpaca in Gold.. Then I chose Ice Yarns Cashmere Silk Exclusive Yarn in which is sold in packs of six 25g balls containing 250m per ball of 20% Cashmere, 50% Silk and 30% Superfine Merino Camel coloured loveliness all for £10.35. The prices of yarns are so cheap as with them being posted internationally the postage costs are higher. That being said the cost of 12 balls of yarn was £20.70 and when postage was added on the total came to £27.78. Which I was particularly happy with, if I do say so myself, the postage times were reasonable and a couple of weeks later my yarns arrived. I am very very happy with the quality of yarn I received and even happier with the price I paid for buying them in bulk packs mean that you have enough yarn to complete a project all for a marvellously low cost.
If you would like to check them out you can here (this link is for yarn-paradise which is the company who make and sell Ice Yarns) however they do also have an Ice Yarns website which you can check out here (however they are both identical, some reviews have suggested that yarn paradise is for UK customers and Ice Yarns is more for customers in the USA)
Muchos Love to you all x
