It's shearing season, which means we'll soon be busting at the seams with new raw materials. That's good for you, because we need to reduce our inventory of in-store merchandise. To facilitate that, we are offering a store-wide 20% discount on all in-stock items.
For sales made in person at our ranch store in Medina, the discount will be applied on the spot, at the time of your purchase.
For all online sales, we will provide a 20% refund* on your ENTIRE purchase price, including any delivery and sales taxes that might apply to your order.
Take advantage of this limited time discount offer.
*The PayPal online payment system does not have the ability to include a "whole order discount." To work around this, we will issue a refund equal to 20% of your total purchase price. This refund will be made directly to your payment method, whether that be a credit/debit card, or your existing PayPal account. Refunds will be made online when we ship your merchandise to you, which is generally no later than the next business day after your order is received by us.

All hand-made alpaca beanies start at $60.00.

These light fawn skeins of yarn have been in our store for a while, physically located in a place where they did not receive the attention that they should have. There is nothing wrong with these products but we would like to move them out of inventory. SO,...we are pricing them well below their original retail prices and even below comparable yarns packaged in smaller skein lengths.

We estimate the skein lengths to be approximately 200 yds.
