sorry about your first wool! I would have cried. My first few transactions sucked on here, when I did confront one seller about the holes in the covers she sold me, she told me to suck it up because they were "basically ffs" umm...I paid $50 for 6 covers...maybe if they were shipped overnight and individually lol but not parcel post in priority envelope turned inside out (and I had to pay extra for the shipping) she also said "No mod will take your side because your feedback is low" so I just dropped it and put her on my do-not-buy-from list, I'll still never buy from her - no matter what she's got, its not worth it.

Which brings me to another point - CLOSE DETAILED PICTURES OF FLAWS!!! it will CYA from an unhappy buyer or pp dispute and it will ensure that your buyer knows what they're buying.

No, hair was embedded in the wool. - I wouldn't rule out the idea that the longies were used in the doggy's bed. YUCK! I can't even think about it without cringing. I was too nervous to contact the seller with the situation. Her feedback, 3000 plus posts, and time as a member was very daunting for me with my 20 posts, 3 ratings, and two months as a member.
I haven't bought in a loong time - knock on wood. But, after that transaction, I have loaded sellers with q's. This is a great thread.

I'm sorry you had such a yucky response.
