Grand River Yarns

Retiring to a small home is no longer an option so I am looking for an apartment. To go from a 1,000 square foot store of yarn and a 3 bedroom house to an apartment is going to be a big adjustment. This weekend I stuck my head in 3 extremely large bins that house my stash. Lord love a duck I was floored at the amount of yarn that I have accumulated. Not just my favourites from my yarn but yarn that I bought at probably every show I have been a vendor at for the last twenty years, Yep its crazy. I would have to live to be 125 to ever have time to knit it all up. So we have those wonderful skeins and balls that I can part with on these pages. Noticed I said these pages as I suspect one page will not be enough to list it all. Some no longer have labels so I have given you what information I have about the yarn.

I have 4 balls of this in my stash and for good reason, I have 6 pair of socks made in this yarn and they were made in 2005. They get warn and thrown in the washer every week and not showing a sign of wearing. Other socks that I
have after wearing them start to wear thin on the heel but not Fortissima. I put extra balls away in case they wore out
but I am pretty sure the ones I have will see me through another 10 years and so and by that time I may not be able to bend over to pull socks on.  All 4 balls are the same dye lot. It is selling for 16.00 a ball now so does 4 balls for $32
sound good.
