Elegant knitted dress kit - alpaca yarn and pattern - for sale.

I haven't posted for a while, but no dyeing has been happening recently apart from a little commission. But I've just posted this in the classified section on Ravelry.



I have a kit plus pattern of the fabulous Icon dress kit from Purl Alpaca designs, in silver grey Purl Alpaca Fine yarn.
I bought this at the Knit and Stitch Show a couple of years ago - as it’s not been made up yet, it’s not going to be.
There was a bit of confusion about this: I bought an XL kit which should have been 17 balls of yarn. When I got home, I’d actually got a M kit, 14 balls, though I’d paid for 17.
They sent me another 3 balls, but they are a slightly different batch - they’d have to be mixed in alternate rows in the garment when it’s knitted, or a smaller size knitted where these balls aren’t used.
This kit cost me £150 new.
I’d like £100 if you want the M kit (all the same colour, 14 balls, and £130 new on the website at the moment).
If you want the full XL kit with the three extra balls, I’d like £125. (Currently showing at £157 on the website).
I’ll even throw in UK second class postage.
Kept in secure storage, in a smoke-free home. (Not pet-free, but nothing furry’s been anywhere near this).
Kit is in mint condition - so would make a lovely present.
