I've ordered several times from YP and have not had any problems with my orders. I've ordered cotton and wool blends and I've been very happy with the quality, colors and how it knits/crochets up. As others have mentioned, the down side is you have to order in predefined bulk which could be 2/4/6/8 skeins. And you can't mix colors in a bulk 'pack'. So if you want a sweater with a contrasting trim, you will have to order a bulk of the trim color as well. But it really is so cheap, it's worth doing that. For example, my last order was for 28 skeins of yarn (enough for roughly 4-5 adult sweaters plus extra), total cost was about $26, shipping another $20. So about $11 per sweater total. I do wish there was a way to see/feel the yarns in person before buying, but so far I've been getting what I expected. Also would add that you do get an email from turkey regarding payment, but I believe that this is something that is required by law (Turkish), and I've never had to respond or do anything. It's just something that is required for international transactions.

Tip for consumers: If you look for 'sale' items you can really get a great price. They also don't show 'care' instructions for their yarns, but if you use common sense for the fiber you are buying you should be fine.
