    insultex

    I'd take 10 yd. if it were available. I just finished a parka with 3 layers of insultex as insulation, and it does very well. Need more.
    Never more than one man left behind, so far !

    So I went to Tree to Tree to buy some IX and the shipping charges on 6 yards was $33! I emailed them last week to see if this was correct and I never heard back from them. Any one have a clue on what the deal with this is? I'd love to get some to make an UQ but when the shipping costs are more than the material costs, it doesn't seem quite worth it.

    I'm in the same boat. Want 6 yards . Send Darby a PM, and wait. I'v been waiting as well. It's the holidays or something . He needs your address so he can send you a Paypal invoice.

    Unfortunately, I have found Tree to Tree to have ridiculous shipping charges.

    Pretty sure they refund the difference after you purchase. There's a thread on it here somewhere.
