Thank you all for your comments on the hell scarf.

While I answered most questions individually, I’ll answer them here for everyone who didn’t comment as well.

Yes, I plan on doing something about this, but not at the yarn store where I made the purchase. In all honesty, the yarn store sucks, and I’ve never been happy with their service, and after I bought this from them I had decided to cut my losses and never go back. I am going to stick to that.

I am going to try and figure out the contact details for the manufacturer however and get in touch with them so I can find out if this suckage is something I should expect from their product or if this was a one off, and if it was a one off, how do they wish to handle it, because it wasn’t cheap to buy, and the sari silk that is now ruined along with it, also not cheap, as I am sure you all know.

If you happen to know the contact details for this company based on the label, I would love it if you would pass them on to me, and if you’d like to see a close up of total ruin, click the thumbnail above for the big and tasty shot.

On a positive note, I will say, the banana silk is really freaking soft now that it has been washed and dried, and I really really wish this had worked out properly, as I would never take it off.

I spoke to the really really nice people at Woolpeddlers. And the lovely Stephanie is sending me 3 skeins of banana silk that doesn’t have issues. (I took a chance and got two more black, and one in downpour.) So not only did she replace the banana silk that had the dye crisis, she threw in another skein to replace the sari silk as well (that I didn’t like as much as the banana silk anyway). I am very happy with this outcome. I can’t express how nice Stephanie was about the whole thing, and I would now buy banana silk again.

    wow! That is really odd looking. Maybe if you bleach it? And try overdyeing? Or just do a bleach pen thing and bleach it artistically? Might be interesting just for kicks. Since you can’t really ruin it…

    I have this pattern for voodoo dolls…

    Oh honey. That is horrible. Don’t these people perform quality control checks!?

    That sucks about the yarn shop too. What an overall crapfest. :(

    huh – that is weird – the color isnt’ too bad, and if it is that super soft, I’d probably wear it anyway! :) Hopefully the company will come through.
