I just took a look at it....and its out of stock...so someone is buying it....lol :think


Well considering how little they get from each animal, they probably only had one or two balls in stock. :lol

It must be famous, very rich crocheters and knitters who are ordering this! Maybe Julia Roberts?? Then you could spend a ton of money on yarn!

I got curious and googled it. It used to be illegal for a "commoner" to wear this stuff!

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness"

Wow! My DH looked at me crazy when i came home with 2.1 oz of Bernat Bamboo yarn for $5, but i couldn't resist once i touched it. Belive me i tried.

I also googled this vicuna yarn. It is so expensive cause it can only be shorn once every 3 years. Its supposed to be very warm and soft. I found it in wikipedia

If I win the $230 million dollar PowerBall today will I no longer be considered a "commoner" and be allowed to buy the yarn in good conscience? :lol

And hand wash and dry flat?? For that price, it would have to do it by itself and sing as it does it.

Well, if you don't need to gas up your car, that could work. Yeah, right!!!

I think for that price i should be able to tell the yarn to crochet itself into what i want.:eek

My doctor says i need fiber, so i'll keep buying yarn. But i'm trying to stashbust in 2013!
