Talk about a quick turn-around! I ordered a few 16mm knots August 1, and they arrived already. Stressing a necessity of being within the 16mm diameter, even around the glue bulge and stating they could accommodate the request, I was resigned to waiting through most of August. Not this time! They are soaking in hot water for 5 min, then I'll shampoo them. The badger stank is among the worst scents to lather up with.
