I'm not a fitted girl but do you have the Grovia/Kiwi Pies? They look very nice.

Re: Why are retailers dropping Sloomb?

I tried posting here what was going on with Sloomb, but my thread immediately got deleted. Part of why they are dropping some retailers is that the retailers belong to a particular Facebook group that was started to give people a place to openly discuss all wool products in an honest fashion. As has been mentioned, Sloomb immediately deletes comments made on their pages regarding poor service, poor quality, and late pre-order times. After banning almost all the members of this Facebook group, they have now taken to asking their retailers to choose sides. I think free speech, openess, and honesty is winning out.

I need my diapers like NOW. Thank you!!!
IDK if I would order if you needed them soon. I once ordered a wetbag and it took over 2 weeks to get here. I don't even understand why it takes so long to ship an in-stock item within the U.S.

I was looking at some of their fitteds because they look so squishy but maybe I won't. And I guess it's another reason not to hoard their wool.

Re: Why are retailers dropping Sloomb?

Wow, I just hate when a company can't take negative feedback. No big company is going to make customers 100% happy, all the time... take the good with the bad, and move on. Deleting anything negative is just... idk, almost childish. You can't hide when you are a big company!

I really like my sbish fitteds, other than I bought a size too big for my daughter so its HUGE on her... I had planned to sell or trade them, but had to use one out of desperation and of course my little angel christened it and now its lightly stained!!! I do think their wool is overpriced for what it is, but I am a knitter so I'm a bit biased, haha!
