gah! really?!  right now?!  humhum.....  it's going to be hard to resist.... so much for not getting sucked back into swap land....Roll Eyes
Question!  Would anyone be interested in some hand washed un-carded BFL locks?  they have a bit of grease left in them, but are super clean.  Also they can be dyed to what ever color preference my partner has (if I sign up Wink Tongue )

Just in case it is not clear, EVERYONE must send a medium item along with their fiber. Does not matter if you're sending 4 ounces or 2 ounces, you must send a medium item also.

EDIT: I re-wrote the original description to be more clear about this. On a side note, I'm excited all the interest this swap has received! I've got about 4 more people to add to the list tonight! Grin
