I realize that search needs much improvement, but please, people, be honest when you are listing something! Pretend YOU are the buyer! Make it easy for the REAL buyer to find you.

Hi Lesley,
How do you know when something is not 100% Alpaca? Maybe this is the reason that I have not been able to compete with what I thought were Alpaca knits. Do you mean that the Title includes Alpaca, and the description then states the percentage? Just curious. 

Thank you.

That is a big problem elsewhere! It'd be nice if people would just title and describe the item accurately. Also put things in the correct category.

These people get away with it because the powers that be aren't doing anything to stop it, even when they know about it.  After all, it's still money received for listings, I suppose.


I know that Craig has deleted items and shops but I believe that he contacts sellers first to find out if they have licences etc and if they are willing to edit their listings.   Copyright and intellectual property infringements are not always as straightforward as they might first seem.


Just out of curosity, does anyone else see Debbie's post (first one on this page) as going down the page with two letters one each line, overlaying the other posts?

Yes, I am seeing the two letter ridiculous post.  I wouldn't even try to read it.  If it was a mistake, why wasn't it deleted?

It was not deliberate, for some reason this happens occasionally but I did not know if anyone else saw it that way.  I have tried editing it and copy pasting but could not get it to work so have now deleted it and will let Debbie know.

If I am searching for an alpaca scarf, I am not searching for an acrylic scarf with a little alpaca in it. Just as the label on a can or package of food lists the ingredients by amount with the largest amount first, yarn labels do the same and so should our listings.

Alpaca = 100% alpaca
Alpaca Blend = alpaca is at least 50% of the blend
If there is less than 50% alpaca, the primary fiber should be the name of the blend. i.e. wool 45% acrylic 35% alpaca 20% would be a wool blend. In this case you could say "with alpaca" or "contains alpaca".

Antique or Tibetan Silver is another phrase that I think misleading, I feel colour, tone, shade or some such word should always be used with them as rarely are they antique, nor do they usually contain silver, but are often modern mass produced items.

Christine, since a lot of my supplies are antique silver or Tibetan silver, I state that it is "antique silver color" or "Tibetan silver color" otherwise, I think it is deceptive to pass something off as "silver" anything unless it is real silver.  Yes, I agree with you and I see it time and time again.
