That'd make me more inclined to purchase from them.  And, not just because I'm from MT and love wool.  I think I might actually know someone from Lavina (where the ranch is located)...

Sorry bro, I had to.  Forgive me but THATS funny.

 

 

Am I the only punter who hasn't heard of Ibex?  They must not sell at WalMart.  Maybe I need to look at Bob Ward.

Nope Jeff.  You nailed it.  Dang!  Usually we pull those on the folks from the eastern side of the state...

Ever heard the story about velcro gloves?

Awesome! Looking forward to increasing my collection of Merino with Ibex products.

Good example to set for other company's.

Heard the other day that Starbucks is bringing production of all their ceramic mugs back to the US.

This is a trend we really need.

Only question is; where's a good place to find Ibex products? Besides on the net that is...
