When I telephoned Deramores I had already tried several times to buy this kit online but unable to get the 10% off as advertised. Contacting them directly they couldn't do it either. After finding which magazine the kit was advertised I was told they no longer use that magazine to promote their wool, but they gave me a discount code so my kit was sold at the discounted price. A bit of faffing, several phone calls, but sorted in the end. I'm enjoying knitting the throw, lovely wool to knit with.
