November update: Market Events and New Product Release Coming!
Hi wool friends,
November is upon us and you can certainly feel a ramping up into the end of the year. I thought I'd send an update as we head into the summer season. It may come as a bit of surprise to know this is our busiest time of year as wool blankets are typically associated with winter but the as the full on market season has now kicked off things start to get a little crazy! Between now and February Fresh Retro Love will be at a number of market and festival events.
As you can imagine, there is a little bit more of a juggle (than usual!). Don't worry, you will continue to see new items added to the website and we are filling customer requests as matches come up.
We love these events as we get to meet so many of our wonderful customers in person and get to talk about beautiful New Zealand wool. Come along and say hi - free blanket pats!

Next market dates are Central Flea, 15th November 8am - 1pm. 170 Balmoral Road, Balmoral
We are also getting lots of enquiries at the moment for customer blanket repairs. We can't take any new orders on at the mo but we are looking at having a customer repair month early next year where you can send us your blanket that needs mends and refresh to me and we'll work some magic.
This month we will have our second release from The Winegum Collection blanket - so exciting! For new people to Fresh Retro Love that is our very own NEW New Zealand Wool, New Zealand Made Blanket. The first one is in super bright fresh citrus colours and the second one (in true FRL style) is another bright one but in different Winegum colours (that's your only hint! hehe). Latest word from the wool mill is our specially dyed wool colours are currently being processed. As soon as we have the opportunity for some sneak peaks we will let you know. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram for the very latest updates.
It's neat to see Restore to Relove blankets now going out now with brand new FRL Restore to Relove labels. In part, that came as a result of suggestions from you our wonderful customers. Thank you for approaching us with your wool ideas and queries. We welcome your input.
Finally with everyone being a bit more out and about have you got your car set with your Summer essentials? Check out our last Blog post for 15 Reasons To Always Keep a Wool Blanket in your Car.
That's about it for now!
As always thank you for all your support and encouragement. Hope you are well and look forward to be of wooly service to you soon.
