Truck Report 10/17/2014

Good morning, Woolfans!

We hope you've had a wonderful week. Friday is a favorite day around here because that's the day the bins get refilled with new scraps from our two Pacific Northwest woolen mills (one in Pendleton, Oregon and one in Washougal, Washington).

This week, the Pendleton truck delivered: 300 pounds fuzzy selvages, 200 pounds of wooly worms, and 150 pounds of header

Right now, our fuzzy selvage is on sale for 50% off the regular price -- just $1.50 per pound.
