The Secret Garden run will be offered as a pre-order in the Apple Blossom Orchard chatter group. At 2pm EDT on Saturday, April 23, 60 pre-order slots will be sold for $100 each. Each person who purchases a pre-order slot will be able to select their choice of size and fiber/color combination. Production is expected to take 8-12 weeks, and the balance of the order will be due before the wraps are shipped. Size and fiber selections do not need to be made at the time of slot purchase. After all of the slots are sold, an email will be sent containing a link to a form and more information on how to select the desired size and fiber/color combination. Once emails have been sent, each person will have 24 hours to enter their selections.
Please note the pre-order slots will not be available for purchase on this listing! At 2pm EST on Saturday, April 23, the link for the listing will be posted in the chatter group. The listing will not be accessible directly on the website, you'll need the secret link that will only be posted there. The release will be 'fastest fingers', and a cart hold should kick in for the first 59 people ONLY once they reach the payment page. The last slot will bounce carts until payment has been confirmed to prevent oversells, so complete your purchase as quickly as possible since there are no guarantees until payment has been confirmed.
If for any reason ABW is not able to fulfill the size and fiber you selected, you will be able to select from the following options:
1. Substitute any other available size/fiber minus a $20 discount on final invoice
2. Full refund, pick pass (RTB) for future release, and $20 discount code for future purchase
(ABW will do their best to fulfill every request, but there is always a possibility of a problem with any step of the weaving or finishing. If that happens, you will be notified as soon as possible.)
The expected time frame is 8-12 weeks. As soon as a round of wraps is ready to ship, invoices will be sent for the remaining balance. Each weft will be woven/finished/invoiced/shipped once ready so there will be 3 rounds of shipping.
Any purchaser can cancel at any time for any reason. In the case of cancellation, a $10 administrative fee will be withheld and $90 will be refunded. If production is delayed past July 16 (12 weeks after the pre-order release), slot holders will be offered the option to cancel their pre-order without the $10 penalty.
Pre-order slots are not transferable. (If purchasing a slot for a friend or acquaintance, or if a friend or acquaintance is purchasing a slot for you, we strongly recommend that no money change hands until the wrap has been received by the original purchaser. If you pay someone $100 to purchase a pre-order slot, and then that person cancels their slot and keeps the refund, Apple Blossom Wovens will not be liable for the loss of your money and will not be able to assist you in seeking remediation.)

Secret Garden's lovely pastels are perfect for spring! This is the third run from our Signature Line, and will be woven in the same point twill structure as both of the previous runs. Because of Tencel's silky texture, it needs to be woven a bit more densely than 100% cotton to ensure the integrity of the cloth. While it's 355gsm is quite high, you'll be surprised at how thinly it wraps though deceptively heavy in hand. Read reviews from our testers here.
Like all of our Signature wraps, it is woven on a vintage dobby loom and finished with unhemmed selvages and tapered tails. Wraps will be cut to allow for shrinkage plus a few extra inches to account for the thickness.
Your wrap will be shipped in loom state. It is absolutely necessary to wash and iron your wrap before using it. If you wrap with it before washing, even just briefly, you can cause thread shifting which will lead to weak spots in the cloth. The fabric needs to be washed in hot water and given a hard press to set the weave before it can bear any weight. For washing information, please click here.
Width: 25.5", measured after a hot wash and press

Shipping will be provided at a flat rate of $12.50. This includes insurance, tracking and signature confirmation.
If you do not want to have to sign for your shipment, you must email email@example.com directly after placing your order. Declining the signature confirmation service constitutes agreement that you are solely responsible for your package once tracking is marked 'delivered'. That means if tracking says 'delivered', but your package is not in your mailbox, we are not responsible for replacing that product.
If you live in Central Ohio and would like to pick up your wrap, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
