See but there still needs to be measurements cause my tiny lady needs a small waist/hips/rise but a medium inseam so both are necessary IMO

For wool, I would add dog / pet hair. One of my first experiences with wool was a pair of longies FULL of dog hair. I picked for HOURS, and finally, out of frustration, threw the things away. They also smelled horrid. Because I hate confrontation, the seller had perfect feedback (had been a member for quite awhile), and because I didn't think to ask a question of that nature before commiting to the buy, I didn't leave feedback for the seller, and never even confronted the situation.

lint roller didn't work?

and smells - totally agree, its also very hard to get smells out of wool IME so I like to be told if they were lanolized in any scents and what brand of spray/wash (some smells stronger than others - exp, I think ENI smells stronger than Northern Essence)

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.

If it has shrunken or if it has been dyed. If dyed, does it still bleed.

I bought a labeled medium, listed as medium, wool cover. It fits as a small. It also bleeds. Have not been able to use it obviously, but I also don't know how to set the dye so that I can pass it on.

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.

Great thread OP.

I skimmed it but didn't see anything about requesting pics. I've helped a lot of newbies by being their big sis and many didn't know to request pics or that it was even an option.


I don't even waste my time w/ a thread that doesn't have pics.
