Note the fine looking Natural Hand Dyed Red and Blue Wools, as well as the naturally Hand Spun and Hand Carded colors, including the grey/brown field, the dark and light browns, and the white.

I DO ACCEPT RETURNS (simply notify me with 3 days of item's arrival and ship within 5 business days), ALTHOUGH MY LISTING STATES 'RETURNS NOT ACCEPTED' due to 's lack of flexibility and strategies to squeeze more money form sellers (i.e. if you don't ship in one day you don't get the 20% seller fee discount). I do not agree with 's 14 day return policy -this is simply too long to close a deal. I ship within 5 business days - I work full time and attempt to ship during my lunch hour if possible. Otherwise I ship Saturdays, in the morning...Thanks for looking! JB
PLEASE CONTACT ME ABOUT PAYMENT OPTIONS IF YOU DON'T WANT TO USE PAY PAL.
