UKI/Supreme cotton sales
Got this email from UKI/Supreme yesterday:
Due to problems with bad color matching, and increasing prices for both cotton and dying we have decided to make a change in our business model.
We are no longer taking orders where each color is under 20lbs. Please try placing your order with our distributor Yarn Barn (or increasing order quantity to meet the MOQ).. We have enjoyed doing business with you!
Just got a call from Walter Turpening (the loom bench maker) trying to see if I can get him some 8/2 Orange cotton from UKI. He was told that he would have to order 20 pound of each color.
From his face book page:
I will be ordering yarn from Halcyon for making the braided cord. So go to their website to see the color options for their Homestead 8/2 cottons.
After 14+ years, I just got the word from UKI that I have to order 20# or more per color! Multiple colors to get more than 20# doesn't count.
I guess we will see what come of this new development
