A bump, a sliver


I hear that a sliver is pronounced sly-ver. So just in case you're like me, and you've been saying it wrong, let's get that sorted out right now (before the pros figure out we're noobs).

But.. what the heck IS one? And while we're at it, what's a bump? I've heard a few different descriptions of what constitutes a bump; and on the heels of that I saw somebody on Etsy describing 4oz as a bump. Hmmmm.

I call that a hunk. Or.. 'some'.

It's a mystery.

The way our suppliers use the term bump, it equates to the processed fiber of one animal. So, a bump of merino is generally between 20 and 28lbs.
