|Carol Lee is the major box
packer. She puts everything
she has into getting as much
fiber into the boxes as she
can. Do keep this in mind when
you cut the tape on the box. It
is going to expand.
To learn the process, I have written a book that can
be found on the website. It can be ordered via
paypal, check or money order.
|LET'S TALK SHIPPING!! Q and A
The amount of fiber you buy is not
what the cost of shipping is
The weight of the box when it
crosses the post office scale, plus
the price of the box, the bags, and
the tape for packaging is also
included in the shipping price.
After losing over $75.00 in
shipping costs the first two weeks
in business, I hired a company to
figure the shipping costs.
Sometimes they are a bit high,
and sometimes they are a bit
low....then I pay some of the costs.
If there is enough money to ship
priority, we try to ship priority.
We add insurance on larger
orders, and we add Delivery
Confirmation on all orders to be
able to track and find order that
might go astray.
Shipping charges are figured on
weight, number of boxes needed
for that weight, supplies needed
to ship and the zone you live in.
The side of the zone you live in
can make a difference in the price
of the shipping for you.
We do not charge you for our time,
either in packing or delivering
mega boxes to the post office five
days a week.
No matter how hard we try we
cannot make everyone happy with
the shipping charges. Shipping is
expensive. We hope that the
lower fiber prices can help make
you happier with the total costs of
We are happy to take back any
of the fibers and yarns that you
may not like or want.
You are responsible for the
shipping costs to return the
item. If you are wanting to
exchange the item for
something else, you are also
responsible for the shipping
costs on the replacement item.
Shipping out of the USA
We do ship worldwide.
We cannot call this fiber anything
else but what it is. We cannot cut
any corners with Customs or we
would lose our shipping rights.
Please do not ask us to do so.
Priority International or
First Class on pkg. weighing under
4 pounds and this has to include
packing materials, box and tape.
We live in a high mountain valley
at the base of the mountains.
To ship any way other than via the
United State Post Office Dept. will
add extra surcharges to your
package, plus a $10.00 daily
This would greatly increase the
cost of the package coming to
you. To haul the boxes to the
nearest shipping point for USPS
and Fed Ex involves hours of
driving time.....and added expense
which we are not going to do.
Shipping is expensive when you
live in a remote area. We try our
best to give you the very best
deal we can on the fibers and
yarns so that maybe the shipping
costs don't hurt quite as much,
and often we pay the extra cost to
get a package to you if there is
not enough money allowed. if we
need an extra box it can make
many more dollars in the
and that sometimes comes out of
our pocket, occasionally eating
the profit we should make.
Please be sure your address is
correct. Yahoo often reverts to a
previous address and that creates
hard feelings and confusion!
|We no longer get the masses of mill end rovings
anymore. Would love to have them to sell if we
We get a few and post them as soon as we haul
them in, but they don't last long. Most comes in
as Grab Bag Materials. We still get the #1 Wool
and Superwash Roving.
