Merino arrival for 3rd quarter: due mid-August 2013

3rd Quarter Stock arrival… around Aug 20, 2013

There has been a slight shift in the arrival date of the third quarter inventory, due to a shortage of superwash merino this summer. This is a temporary thing, and it occurred three years ago, as well. At that time, I referred to it as our ‘superwash diet.’ There is nothing we could have done to prepare for this situation, and so we must ask you to adjust your scheduling to accommodate the arrival date of these yarns. Third Quarter’s inventory order contains these yarns:
Butterfly Select
Crazy Eight, cones and skeins
W2D4 Merino Bulky-SW
Merino Traditional Aran, skeins and cones
Platinum Sock, skeins and cones
Sheila’s Gold, skeins and cones
Sheila’s Sock, skeins and cones
Silk DK 50/50, skeins and cones
Single Sock HT
Soft Single Sock
Sheila’s Sparkle
Ultra Merino 3Ply, skeins and cones
Ultra Select
Silk Sock 50/50
W2D4 Merino Worsted, skeins and cones
W2D4 Merino Worsted-SW, skeins and cones
W2D4 Merino DK-SW, skeins and cones
Two yarns to arrive before that date are Diamond Select and the new Silky Single sock. (expected around July 14th)
Just after arrival of 3rd quarter stock, we will receive a boost in three popular yarns to hold us through fall demand. these three yarns are Platinum Sock, W2D4 Merino Worsted-SW and Sheila’s Gold.
