    CURRENT RUN DEMAND: 368 Meters
    RUN CLOSES on 3rd June due to the 12 W lead time I have to finalize this

    Here it is guys:

    - There will be a small correction on the weave (where is a minor issue where one weft skips the pattern incorrectly very minor easy fix)

    - The Delivery time will be 14 weeks (factoring in a 2 week shutdown they have planned in august)

    - The Weight is 425g per meter

    - The Width is 1400mm (140cm)

    - The Shrinkage is estimated at <3%

    - The Fabric is DRY CLEAN ONLY

    - The Fabric is 100% Cotton


    PRICE:

    Now the part your really interested in. the mill have done their very best to offer me a reasonable price for the fabric considering the interest

    - The Price will be £20 per Meter

    For a custom woven fabric I've been told this is a very reasonable price.

    DELIVERY:

    Assuming everyone pays up within this week I can order for a projected delivery date of: 09/09/2015 bare in mind this is the delivery date to me not you, please factor in shipping time from the UK I will work tirelessly to get this out to you as soon as I can please allow me at least 2 weeks to dispatch (more if there will be much more than 100 meters)

    Shipping will be billed separately from the fabric at a later date. feel free to use the estimated weights and sizes listed above to give you an idea of the shipping costs and don't forget i will need to purchase suitable bagging/boxes to ship with!

    Re: Kylo Ren: Outer Fabric

    The material would be about 400 Canadian by the time it ships, Would love to order but that's a little steep for me right now. Thanks for putting so much effort into this.

    Well guys you made this happen !! currently have 137 meters of demand we've broke the 100 meter minimum mark !! give yourselves a pat on the back !!

    also for those interested in shipping it seems parcel force are offering a very reasonable service that should cover most world wide destinations for £90-100 other couriers all wanted minimum £150

    For the record I HATE paypals "Easy" seller fee system


    just add 3.2% and then a variable 0.4%-1.5% depending on the destination add those all up in a secret seemingly random combination and add 20p ... sure it's easy to calculate .. Screw you paypal.


    I resent today's invoices but they are still wrong .. why is it so bloody hard to just say hey this is the amount i'm billing add the rest on top ... sheesh ...


    for those i've billed a second time that was your final bill i will just take the hit from paypal on this i refuse to continually mess buyers around with their ****ty system


    Rant End

    What are the chances of this mill producing this on a regular basis if the demand keeps climbing? Has there been any mention of that?

    It is not possible to send via post office like buckle? I do not have a great experince with carrier and they are very expensive in my opinion.

    I can't believe i missed the run!!! If there is anyway to still get this fabric, PLEASE let me know. I guess I will have to work on the undercoat in the meantime. Hopefully I can get this all together for the premier!

    Well... Looks like I missed the run.

    is there anyone who is getting extra that they would be willing to send me?

    im desperately trying to find this in my local area. Something similar that is obviously.

    Or, will there be another run in the near future?

    I know I'm really late coming in, I was hoping to possibly get the name of the mill unless by chance your doing another run (I doubt) I'm really just interested in making the hood/scarf since I live in a cold area but I have been looking to do the whole outer robe, haven't been able to find the fabric on my own and any help finding it would be very helpful.
