Nope, I did write to them they won't ship internationally (& with credit
card facilities it currency differences don't affect them), I found lots of
stuff really cheap & probably would have bought more than 1 order but that's
their bad luck (unfortunately it's also my bad luck as I haven't seen coat
weight wool at $4 a yard anywhere else), but what really annoyed me was that
they didn't make it clear. They just omitted mention of the rest of the
world in their shipping details, it wasn't until I'd put in my credit card
details & got to the confirm your order page that I finally got a sentence
saying "we do not ship orders internationally"
In reply to Despina's post, if there is somebody over there in the US who
would act as a fabric relay person (i.e. I pay for the fabric tell them to
ship it to your address & then I pay you enough to send it to me) please
contact me as I really need a new cloak (my current one is synthetic velvet
circa 1940-50 modern cut & doesn't close in the front) & I can't even find
coat weight wool here in Australia let alone at just over $5 per yard (based
on current exchange rate)

there is light from within.
