Ecru/white fibers are back in stock. All solid Ashland Bay merino colors are in stock. There will be a sale on the 19 micron color line fibers discontinued by Ashland Bay posted this month.
As you may have noticed, the current cart has no shipping calculator, and all US shipments (except perhaps wheels and carders to Hawaii and Alaska) are free -- from as little as 4 oz. of fiber on up, even dyes. Schacht price changes are coming, and pre-orders for their new Flatiron wheel are already being taken. Prices posted will be honored until those changes are made.
YES. We have started on the brand new, top to bottom, SpinningFiber website. Different layout. Keep it simple and small. KISS. We expect to start posting new pages this month which will eventually transform into a SpinningFiber.com site (that address is currently inactive At that point, this site will go inactive. Remember, however, we work at a snail's pace on website matters. I know, it has been an eternity. Life only stabilized around here Feb. 1.
Brand new photos of all carried Ashland Bay products are waiting here on this computer's desktop.
While one or two lines may be discontinued or contracted, there will also be new fibers and blends, unique to the U.S. As can be expected, we went full cycle back to this year's versions of programs that were used in 2000 or so at the dawn of the old Copper Moose. Also as can be expected, there were some software/code/program conflicts that have seem to be resolved. Those set things back two weeks, as I had hoped by this point to at least have a brand new home page, even if it wasn't the final design.
As usual, life intervenes, and we are on a crash course of mandated home repair. 2 rooms well on their way (one of which is the new craft room), 3 overall to somehow get done in the next 8 days.
All maskmakers & doll hair lovers --
Red camel arrives (and ships out) on a regular basis.

Teressa and Jeanette,
We are moving around shelves for incoming inventory and just a few minor things to clear out. 2016 promises to be a great year. Best wishes to all.
We believe we have finally found the right resource(s) to make the big jump. It has been a long journey.
Bill notes----I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, for questions, follow-up, warranties, etc. I have retired (medical). Not to worry, my family genetics point towards a very long lifespan. So, it balances out.
New business goes to the Gal(s)-in-charge. "On call", I answer specific questions. I am an indentured typing slave, perhaps gaining freedom by 2023. Again, thanks to all from over the years.
I have started serious work on my third CD, or several "EPs". Some mellow, some real serious crunch, industrial, others electro-dance of sort. Others, technical music stretches in terms of rhythms and chord structures. Of course, I won't get all of this done this year, unless it is one song each. Very schizo of sorts. I have a lot of notes, and I don't mean that as a pun. By the New Year, I may have a completely different set of goals and priorities. Composing takes me a while, with exceptions, so I may not be posting anything for a few months. The current tools available are mind-boggling in terms of having them all in my head at once. Baby steps. Focus. Selection. Wrapping my head around all this actually tires me.
I am also exploring new woodworking techniques, photography, and possibly even welding. Even in remission, I am prone to very irregular progress.. Who knows what I'll produce when. Thanks again for continuing along to the a different crew. It is gratifying for me to see that many old customers have continued through the transition.

Returns for fibers and small items (hand cards, bobbins, dyes) are 14 days and money back or merchandise credit, but I can be flexible. Most equipment such as spinning wheels and drum carders are not returnable once opened/used. It is hard to get some of the items back into the box, and some dealer rules maintain that returned items can only be sold as new, so therefore, they must be new and unused. We work with manufacturers, shipping insurance, warranty, and in some cases our own personal warranty to resolve any issues by replacing parts as needed.
