Shipping costs start with a one pound charge,
so a small item weighing 1.75 oz will show a
cost the same as if it were one pound. If the
charges are more than $2.00 over what we
actually use, we will refund.
WE DO NOT SHIP ON SATURDAY OR SUNDAY.
Our small town post office is only open for 1/2
hour on Saturday, and is not a good time to try
to mail a package.
We ship Mon-Fri. if your order is in by 10 AM,
mountain standard time we will try to ship it
out that day.

be returned. We do not pay the postage to

|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.

The weight of the box when it crosses
the post office scale, plus the price of
the box, the bags, and the tape for

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
We do not charge you for our time,
either in packing or delivering mega
boxes to the post office five days a
No matter how hard we try we cannot
make everyone happy with the
shipping charges. Shipping is

We are happy to take back

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

We live in a high mountain valley

United State Post Office Dept.
will add extra surcharges to
your package, plus a $10.00
daily pickup fee. 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

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

our pocket, occasionally eating
the profit we should make.

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 could.
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
