Need Help finding yarn on Etsty

I would rather use Etsy over EBay; I want to support local artists. I have read the good and bad stories and know that the bad are fewer than the good.

So, I need your ETSY favorites. I have 50$ burning a hole in my pay pal account that I would love to spend. (Des Etsy accept pay pal?") I need recommendations because I don't what to get a wet Willie and get screwed over like...
1. Sellers with a LOT of lost packages that they claim aren’t their fault, If 2 out of three packages go missing, that is going to make me raise an eyebrow.
2 Misrepresentation of the amount of yarn a’ cake' and 'ball' can have lot of different quantities of weight. So, I need two things
1. Pitfalls to stay away from (did you have a bad exeperience?)
2. Quality - One buyer found that after she spritzed her work, all the colors ran,


Specifically especially self striping yarn
P.S. - If anyone has a good source for self striping yarn, I would like to know. On the net, or Etsy

One of my favorite Etsy yarn stores is Julia's Craft Store. Her yarn comes in gorgeous colors, is exceptionally soft, and she ships very quickly. :)

yarnchef

My favorite(though I suppose I'm biased, as I work on that ranch!) is http://www.silversunalpacas.etsy.com/
She's got some really nice hand-spun yarn, batts, and all kinds of fiber-goodies.
