I bought some Moda Dea yarn from a sales circular sent to me by Herschner’s. I decided to buy it (at less than $2 USD a skein) because of the raves I’ve seen for their yarn here and other places. Now, my unhappiness comes from the fact that everything Moda Dea publishes about the color of the Sassy Stripes I bought suggests that it is grey.
As you can see, nary a spec of green to be seen in the Stormy pallet area.
What I got was green. Very Green. Forest Green.
The thing is, this is not making my husband go, “Great color honey!” He actually tried to smile and it just came out as a grimace. Now I’m trying to reassure him and tell him that it will look better after it’s blocked and washed (a total lie, I know, but I’m stalling).
The thing is, I know, now, that I will possibly need two more skeins to complete the project, however, since I cannot find any more of this yarn for sale from reputable sellers, I get the feeling that possibly Herschner’s got to sell a bad dye lot and that’s why it was so incredibly cheap. If I order more of the same and get the grey color, I have a feeling I will end up going all Mt. Aetna on Moda Dea and demand money back AND replacement yarn to remake the sweater if I can’t finish it.
At this point, what do you think I should do? Contact Moda Dea and ask them about the obvious incongruity in what is advertised and what I really got? Or should I just suck it up and start over in another yarn and consider this a lesson learned?
