There are 100 sweaters in each bale. Each bale weighs between 70-75 pounds. There are lots of reasons why 100 sweaters in one bale weighs differently from 100 sweaters in another bale. Sizes (small, med large, etc), Shapes (Sweater dresses, vests, short sleeves, long sleeves), Thickness of wool, Fineness in wool, hardware (Buttons, zippers, beads, trim), just to name a few.
Here is what you can expect from each bale.
1. 100 Sweaters per bale. 2. Each sweater has at least 50% of some kind of animal fiber. 3. Every Sweater is black, grey, or black & Grey..
I have not picked through the sweaters, These are the same bales that I get and the same type of sweaters that I use. I am just offering to sell some of the bales. I get a lot of people asking me to sell some of the sweaters. If you want a bale of the same exact kind of sweaters that I get, here you go.
The first picture is a sample of opening a black & Grey bale.
The sweaters can be wool, angora, alpaca, llama, cashmere, mohair, et cetera. There are a variety of black and greys and patterns. (stripes, cable cord, fair isle, Norwegian, aplicate, argyle, solids, you name it) These are used sweaters. They need to be cleaned. If they have holes and you are making mittens, use that sweater to make your mitten thicker on the pieces that are thin. The dimensions are about 32 * 16 * 16, if you were wondering where you were going to put 100 wool sweaters. The bale is kinda compressed and will double in size when you open it. These are great for crafters. Ever wonder why you can't find wool sweaters for your recycled sweater projects. Now you don't have to wonder. Quit going to all the consignment stores looking for wool sweater. That wastes time and gas. I got them all right here.
These sweaters are not in anyway intended for you to stop your sweater hunting. It is meant to assist so you don't have to constantly keep on trying to find them. Try these sweaters and see what you get, then go out and find the sweaters that you need. Use this a tool to help save time and money.
The price is $400.00 per bale plus $ 50 for shipping. Usually the rate is $75. I only have a couple of the bales in stock. Get them while you can. If you live close by, these are available for pick if you want to save on shipping. Or if you live in the speedee delivery area, please let me know before you order. I will ship these free in Speedees area. Speedee delivery area is Minnesota, Wisconsin, N. & S. Dakota, Iowa, Illinois, and Nebraska. If you preference is to use speedees, give us a call.
If you want to use your own shipping company, that is fine with me. Just let me know. I will only ship within the 48 states. Sorry Alaska & Hawaii. If you live in Canada, I don't mind shipping to the border for you. I do that for a few other people.
Again, the only requirement for each sweater is that they are 50% or more of animal fiber, and it is black/grey.
