I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everybody for the amazing response that you’ve given to our first stocking! We were brand new to the garment manufacturing industry when we started this journey, and there were many instances where we thought that our little guy would be too old for woolies by the time we got a quality garment to launch. We really had no idea what to expect from the stocking (my husband and I said we would be happy if we sold 1 – 2 woolies per week), and the response from all of you has far exceeded any of our expectations.
Quality is a priority for us – we expect it from products we purchase ourselves. Our son Max (20 months) was an enthusiastic Yooki prototype field tester – he made sure to take them through a diversity of experiences - slides, steps, mulch, stones, bricks, fountains, sand, the Pacific ocean - to make use satisfied. Our workshop did a great job putting the woolies together. Our quality inspection department at this point literally consists of me and my mom who flew in from Minnesota to help (my husband works long hours and Max & the cat are not much help). We did our best to look over the garments, but if you are not completely happy with your order or if we *gulp* missed anything during the inspection process, please let us know ASAP so that we can make it right (please be mindful of the return policy).
If you have any constructive feedback about what you liked / didn’t like / would like to see next time about the garments or the experience please let us know as well (via website).
As for future offerings, we’re as excited to get rolling as you are. Over the next week or so we’re going to start planning what makes sense in terms of colors (new? and current favorites), sizes (XS/XL?) and styles for our next woolie stocking. Let us know what you want and watch the website and/or facebook chat group for more announcements.
In the mean time, keep your eye out in the future for our stocking of American-manufactured 100% merino wool cable blankets!
