I think I have just run headlong into the economic problems. The latest batch of wadding I ordered went up in price between the order and delivery. It happens so mostly it isn't a problem, but this time it went up 60%! That's a lot. It's going to have happened to all the shops too. So they are now faced with passing it on making the wadding about £13 per meter (80/20 90 something inches) or selling it at a loss (after overheads). Which translates to lose money from lost customers or lose money on each sale. Not a choice I would want to make.
