Thank you for your recent purchase from [redacted]*. I apologize for the delay in shipping your order. We had only 9 skeins left of this color and we had to reorder. We expect to receive it next week. We will send your order out as soon as it comes in. You will get an email confirmation when it ships. Thank you!
