As a factory we knit out our woollen pieces as close to size as possible, press them on a heat press (where they will shrink) and then they are cut to a pattern. The offcuts were previously discarded.
Due to demand, we have saved the offcuts and have packed them into bags of a suitable size to fit (filled to stuffed) in a 3kg Australia Post Satchel. This is roughly 1.5kg of woollen offcuts.
There is a small fee ($1) for the admin and sorting time, otherwise these are all at our cost as described below for the 3kg Satchel size:
- $13.45 +GST for postage;
- $0.77 +GST for transaction fees;
- $0.30 +GST for the plastic packing bag (I know this seems steep but they charge us to punch holes in the bag which is essential for our jumpers. These bags will also protect your wool from moth damage);
- $1.55 +GST on $17 transaction.
If you live locally, please phone ahead to bring your own bag or box to the factory to collect offcuts. This is free of charge. If you have a business address and would like a more significant amount of offcuts, please contact us with your address details so we can get a Toll IPEC quote for you. Please note we will only sort the offcuts by type for the 3kg satchels as you will be receiving such a small amount with no choice of colour we would at least like you to receive your choice of content.
NOTE: The bags are sorted by a human and therefore will have some bits and pieces of non wool items such as the cotton drill we use to make patches on jumpers or occasionally an acrylic blend.
If you are purchasing these offcuts you must be a very clever person because you have an idea for what you will do with them and the talent to make it happen. Therefore, we ask that you take extra care and use the code ‘recycle’ as a coupon code when you are checking out so that our website doesn’t charge you an extra $15.00 postage. We know it’s an unusual step for online shopping but we’re sure you can navigate around it. Thank you for your cooperation.
