Re: Hackle ALERT !!!

The cape arrived today. I have never received anything so quickly from UK before. Delivery time is usually three weeks. As Bazzer warned us, they are as described; furnace.

Dana, the seller is now listing 71 capes available! So the chances of getting the one pictured is not so good. I imagine whoever gets the one in the photo will not know what they have!

Re: GRHE Dark Version

I take this blending method one step further. When the blended dubbing is dry, I give it a spin in my coffee grinder. I very much like the result of that operation.
