Do you know about “Malabrigo Madness Stock Up Event”?

Here are event details listed on the site:

Welcome to the Malabrigo Madness Stock Up Event!

How it works:

1. We will be placing a giant group order from Malabrigo Yarn approximately May 25, 2010.

2. Use this section to select from any available Malabrigo Yarn in any colorway currently produced either by the bag or skein.

3. Orders up to $50.00 will receive 15% instant cash back and free shipping.

4. Orders up to $100 will receive 20% instant cash back and free shipping.

5. Yarn purchased “Buy the Bag” will receive 30% cash back and free shipping.

6. Cash back incentives will be applied to your account AFTER your order is placed.

7. Credit card orders will not be charged until we place the order with Malabrigo. We will send you a updated order total prior to processing any payments.

8. For all other payment methods, please choose check or money order during the checkout process and indicate your method of payment in the comments box. We will bill you separately.

9. Orders to Canada will received free shipping on all orders over $25. All other international orders under $100 will receive reduced shipping rates as provided in our shipping policies. Orders over $100.00 will ship free.

10. We expect to ship orders placed on or before May 25, 2010 approximately 8 weeks from May 26 2010.

11. All participants who are paid in full by May 25, 2010 will be entered into a “Malabrigo Madness” drawing for free Malabrigo Yarn! Winner(s) will be chosen and notified May 26, 2010.

So based on my calculation, if you buy a bag it only cost you $12.88/skein for sock yarn (100 gr), $6.16/skein for lace (50 gr) and $7.5/skein for worseted (100 gr). Don’t you think these prices hard to resist?

I have some Malabrigo worsted in my stash that I haven’t used yet. At this moment, I have new crochet project that use Malabrigo lace. Actually I don’t really enjoy crocheting with it. It’s not as smooth and fast as Jagerspun Zephyr, probably because Malabrigo doesn’t have silk content in it (it’s 100% wool). However, I can see that the final result is going to be gorgeous, plus I read a lot of good review in Ravelry about Malabrigo.

So, I order some. Not as many as I would like to, but enough for me to get busy using it and play with it for sometimes.
