Notification of price increases on 18th May

Yarnundyed commits to purchasing fibre well in advance of spinning it nto yarn. The long lead times to secure fibre, prepare it into tops and then have it spun into yarns means that the cost of the yarn we are currently selling is often driven by fibre prices and spinning costs eight to twelve months prior to the need to replace stock with a new batch. This has the advantage that we are mostly able to hold prices relatively stable for extended periods of time as we know key costs in advance. However, it also means that we have to adjust prices periodically to reflect changes in the cost of new batches of yarn where there has been step up in the cost of fibre. In the absence of major changes to individual yarns such as been the case with Mohair over the past few spins, we try and limit price changes to an annual review undertaken in late Spring each year.
We have been forced to make a few price adjustments to several of our yarn bases in response to changes in fibre and/or spinning costs. It has been over twelve months since we last had to change prices (April 2018). For our current review which we have effected this weekend (18 May 2019) we have endeavored to only make price changes to a limited number of yarns where price changes were absolutely necessary. In so doing we have absorbed cost increases on most of our yarns but have had to make some level of price increase for 40% of our yarn bases. Even then, we have limited the price increase on two thirds of these yarns to be 2.5% or less.
We have only been forced to adopt price increases of more than 2.5% for five of our yarns. These principally relate to:
" three bases which contain cashmere fibre (cashmere fibre costs have increased dramatically over the past twelve months)
" alignment of the price of our Polwarth DK with that of the 4Ply to correct a pricing error we made in April last year and
" our merino lurex 20g minis which have been uplifted by 3.5% to better reflect the cost of preparing these relative to packs of 100g hanks.
To allow us to hold the same prices on most of our yarns for a second year we have had to revisit our price discount levels and also our order level to qualify for free shipping. Notably, we have uplifted the order level to qualify for free shipping from $75 to $100 and the large order discount threshold has increased from $500 to $600. This seemed a much less painful way to factor in some of our increased carrier charges.
