Buyer requested a refund, what should I do? *PP finally decided! OP updated

Ok, I sold a wrap to a sweet mama recently. I recieved new from a US store and tried it on once. I owned it maybe 3 days before it sold.
I did notice a small rip on one tail, but noted it and said it didn't look like it would fray. I was completely disclosed in the ad.
That was about 3 weeks ago. Now the buyer is PMing me saying there is a pull, a broken thread or something that was weaved back in with a yellow thread and some other weaving flaw. Now, I didn't go over it with a fine tooth comb, but I didnt notice these.
She requested a refund and to return the wrap. I told that I would rather not have it back since I have no use for it. I offered a partial refund. I pointed out that she has had it for 3 weeks now so there is no way to say when the flaws got there.
Rather than responding to my msg, she went through PP and requested a full refund. Is there anything I can do now besides refund her?

*UPDATE: They ruled in my favor! the funds have been rertuned to my account. woot woot! Thanks for the advice and support mamas. this situation truly sucked.

it's been three weeks. Contact pp and inform them that you had mentioned it's condition in the ad. And that she has had it for 3 weeks. It most likely got snagged on something she had and now she's trying to get her money back

I agree. You had it for 3 days before you sold it and noted the flaw as you saw it when you sold it. She's had it for 3 weeks and there's no way to verify when the damage happened. A weaving flaw can be highly subjective, so that shouldn't hold any water. I hope that you don't have to refund her.

Thanks. I contacted PP and the rep said this one is going to be hard since it's a he said/she said thing. She claims that the flaws render the wrap unusable

Do you still have the listing where you disclosed the flaw? I know this is a seperate flaw, but still. She still purchased something knowing it had a flaw.

I would call them and tell them the web address so they can view it themselves. It helps to have visual proof.
