I feel like crying. Last night, I put a clean sheet on the floor and pulled out some of my roving. It is so full of VM I'm not sure I can sell it. I know it isn't the mill's fault, they can only work with what they get. I was just hoping they could get the VM out.
I sat last night with a pair of tweezers for HOURS trying to pick out the VM and it is futile. It would take me forever and I still can't get it all out. I was really looking forward to getting this roving, and have been waiting 5 months to get it back from the mill. I have a store up in Lockport willing to sell it on consignment for me. I don't want to put my name on this stuff and have people associate it with VM.
So I don't know what to do. I need $20 a pound just to break even. Maybe I'll sell it in bulk with no label.
I definetely think it's time to seriously look into sheep jackets. The thought of not having to skirt anymore is tempting...
