    Cotton Co-op (Sterile Wool, Organic Cotton). Expression of Interest list

    Hi All,

    As many of you are aware I ran a small scale buy for various types of cotton wicks and cotton wool. It started off as a handful of people and now I get pms daily about it.

    There has been some really good feedback from people and I am waiting to send the remainder to the reserve list as well as some replacement organic wick to Optee and Suspect. Once I have filled the reserve list I will be pretty much out of stock.

    So with that in mind now that I get pm's daily about it, I think its time to get the ball rolling.

    This is all Opteemist's fault for showing off at a vape meet >< !!

    The 3 types and some feedback:

    - Medline sterile cotton wool (contains no sizing, no boiling rewuired unless you want to play it ultra safe, no contaminates). Users have noted this provides a very very clean taste and is significantly better than your local supermarket brand cotton wool. It removes the cotton based taste / aftertaste that people were having. This proved to be very popular and even more so now that people have tried it at vape meets.

    - Organic Cotton from the Philippines. This is pretty much as natural as it gets. I am still waiting on further feedback but personally I think it provides a very clean taste. I am trying to sort out some different thread counts and sizes and a bit more quality control as the last batch wasn't as good as the 6 months previous (needed washing before use).. I am negotiating with my supplier on a cost to see if this can be reduced further.

    - Modnworld Organic Cotton/Hemp Wick aka Tark's wick. Most people loved it with the exception of one person who didn't like the hemp taste. But otherwise it had high praise from vapers all over the place including Pbsuardo who uses it with his cotton builds where normal cotton wool won't work very well, like in an Ithaka for example (not saying it cant be done with cotton wool, it can but its easier in a rope configuration). More info here Organic Cotton Hemp Wick "Eco-Wick" 5 meters. If you want to try it yourself and not wait for me Tark now offers international shipping. He makes some nice drip tips also

    So for now this is an EOI so I can figure out just how much I would require, how much help I'm going to need and then I can provide you a firmer cost and time frames.

    I am also looking for a volunteer or two should it grow to a size where I cannot manage to ship it myself.

    In the previous mini co-op the 3 items and their cost was as follows :

    1) Organic Cotton - 50 cents a meter. This price may reduce based on order quantity. It may also increase in price if it is sourced at a higher quality than the previous batch. it may also increase in price if shipping it from the Philippines to Australia with a larger amount. For the previous batch I only ordered 20 meters and it was packaged with lots of mods and atty's, if its a very large batch and its shipped by itself it will be DHL or Fedex it will increase the price.This does not include shipping from me to your door. From me to your door would be $3.00 for up to 10 meters if you are not ordering cotton wool with it. If someone has a local source for this that is cheaper and more easily obtained I would love to hear from you.

    2) Tark's Organic Cotton/Hemp Wick - 80 cents USD a meter, 1 dollar AUD once you take into account the exchange rate and shipping. This does not include shipping from me to your door which can be as low as $3.00 if you are not ordering cotton wool with it.

    3) Medline Sterile Cotton. $3.50 for a glad bag 22cm x 25cm stuffed to the brim which was the most I could fit into a 500gram Parcel Post / Express post bag. It may not seem like a large amount but it's enough cotton wool to last you potentially months as the bag will make 100's of wicks. Comparatively if you went and bought a standard bag of cotton wool balls at the supermarket it wouldn't even fill an 1/8th of the bag so it is very cost effective. The cost is derived from the U.S to A.U shipping charges, not from the cotton rolls themselves and is unlikely to decrease unless it is sourced locally.

    Larger amounts (several 22cmx25cn bags) can be ordered using a 3 and 5kg parcel post or express bag.

    Interest List

    Organic Pinoy Cotton. This will be the most difficult to obtain in a bulk quality so please don't put 50 meters as it's not going to be practical at this point. For the time being this is capped at 5 meters per person. If you do not want to wait you can buy it directly from myvape.in's website, however it is $3.50USD a meter.

    This will take the longest to obtain and to be shipped so it may be worth shipping separately if you are ordering sterile cotton wool or tark's wick which will arrive much sooner.

    Its also important to note. This will not be a pre-payment type co-op unless the value exceeds $200. Once I have a decent amount of interest I will pay for it and then once it has arrived I will then send a payment request. All payments will be goods via paypal.

    The speed at which it is sent to co-op participants will depend on the amount of orders and how many cadets (helpful volunteers) I get that can help with the distribution.

    To be clear, this is not an alibaba co-op of clone vape gear. It's not going to ship out at the fastest rate possible from hong kong and it's freight from the U.S due to the cotton roll size, but I and my helpful volunteers will do the best as we can.

    If you have any suggestions of places that you know will sell sterile cotton locally to the general public or organic cotton then please let me know

    Thanks,

    Sam
