How I propose this should work:

Most of the above yarns were rather cheap, considering some US yarns, ranging between 7-12 USD per skein. They all should make at least 1 pair of socks, some two if you like them with a short cuff. They are all of a rather squishy quality (that’s why I don’t like them anymore), but really superwash and by some considered indestructible.

Now you choose the yarns you’d like, email me so I can reserve them for you, and send them to you. In exchange, you send me some US sock yarns of about equal value. For a general measure, they German yarns are worth about:

Opal Normal: 8.70 USD

Opal Special & Hundertwasser: 12.50 USD

Rellana Flotte Socke: 7 USD

ONLine Supersocke: 7 USD

Fortissima: 7 USD

They’ll likely go on ebay in the future, but I think this really might be an occasion for some of you. Email me with further questions, please, at peachyknits (at) gmail (dot) com.
