The fastest wool shipping ever
The fellow knitter linked me to http://www.ortodegliulivi.it/ , a bio-farm selling pure homespun wool - (on sale, at the time)
I was tempted - both by the offer and by their dyeing tips, so and I ordered 2 kg of their wool - in the 2 and 4 ply version, having lot of projects on the list (a wedding shawl, a baby surprise, some heritage heavy socks for a swap, some home made natural dyeing, things like this).
As you can see from the not so brilliant pic taken with my smartphone, the two cones are already making friends in my (one of the many) knitting corb.
Let me tell you the wool is superb, with a delicate parfume of lavender, soft at touch.
But - most of all - Chiara, from L'Orto degli Ulivi, sent the parcel yesterday morning and I got the wool today, before noon. Poste italiane being involved, I can assure you it's a WR.
Look, I've seen tons of advertisement about superb yarns, I've even seen people spreading a good word about a seller being rewarded with hats, mittens, stitchmarkers, pretty soaps... Not at all in this case - I'm totally AD and sponsor free, but I also feel free to heartly reccomend you L'Orto degli Ulivi farm and their wool. That is.
