We launched out Kickstarter Campaign to manufacture Fleece Wrap-Ears here in the United States using 100% recycled fleece and we are off to a dynamite start: we are already over 40% of the way to our goal!
I’ve gotten questions about our campaign and about how Kickstarter works so I’m going to take some time here to answer them. If you have any other questions, please comment below or reach out to me at michelle at shoplysande dot com or on Instagram or Facebook @shoplysande. Without further ado:
Why are you doing Kickstarter versus just selling them? Is this a different store?
To hit the $25 price point for a made-in-the-USA with 100% recycled fleece product we have to do a larger run than we have ever done before. Our Kickstarter campaign allows us to both get preorders for our factory run and to make sure that there is sufficient demand for the Fleece Wrap-Ear.
When will Fleece Wrap-Ears be available on your website?
If we hit our target, they will be available for sale on the website as soon as we have fulfilled the orders of our Kickstarter backers and taken a vacation (early January. If we do not hit our target, we will not make them and they will not be available.
Will you update us after the campaign about progress?
YES! You’ll get an email update every two weeks between the end of the campaign and when your Fleece Wrap-Ears ship! (And there will be more frequent updates on Instagram.)
What happens if we don’t hit the target? Do I lose my money?
We are only making Fleece Wrap-Ears if we hit our target. There’s no risk for you because Kickstarter will only charge your payment method after we hit our target.
What happens if something goes wrong?
I’m going to bring you along on every step of the journey and I personally guarantee that you will get your order. Whether that means sleeping on the factory floor or sewing each of them myself and delivering them by hand. If for some reason something comes up and we can’t get them to you by early December, we will let you you will have the option to get a full refund.
I want to back but want to make sure I’ll get them in time for winter…
Thank you! I’m going to do absolutely everything I can to get them to you by early December and will keep you updated every step of the way! If anything comes up that gets in the way of that, you will have the opportunity to get a full refund!
How did you pick your kickstarter goal?
We picked it based on the quantity needed to support a factory run at the $25 price point.
We have 12 days left to meet our goal and bring Fleece Wrap-Ears to life!
