Hi Jerry, Claudia, Caroline, and Glenn-

I got my yarn today—man, that was a heavy box!!

I’m very impressed with the remarkable uniformity of all of the yarns.  I’m glad I didn’t order a finer yarn—this is really nice, and I think it will be very versatile.  You also did an excellent job of cleaning out the vegetable material—good on you!.  Especially with the black, the addition of suri to huacaya adds some sheen to the yarn.  I’m glad I ordered the cones—I’m going to get in touch with the folks in Maine who hand weave scarves to see what they can do with this!

And I REALLY like the rose grey!  It’s a heavier yarn, as I had intended, and so interesting to look at!  Judging from the roving you sent back (thank you!), I think you first blended the light colors and then added the black?
In general, the skeins are much heavier and bulkier than what I previously got.  So, I’ll up my price!  And I intend to make labels for each yarn skein.

Not much yarn sales going on right now, since it’s taboo to handle things, and yarn selection is such a tactile thing.  That’s ok—we have our shearing on April 1, and then I can plan out where/how I want to sell the yarn.
Forgot to add—you do such a nice job of packaging!  With the zip lock bags, and the tags listing weight and length of each skein.  Thank you!
Be well-
