The various grades, weights and thicknesses of yupo are spun into spools in lengths from 725 yards to 7,500 yards, which are cut in to widths from 6 to 66 inches. After cutting and finishing has taken place, they are ready to ship todistributors and manufacturers for commercial and technical markets.

I am an Artist wantabee. I love art for Art sake. With 5 kids, foster children, dogs, chickens and bees. I need something to fill up my time. I hate cooking, baking, canning, doing laundry, cleaning house and even taking baths (I shower) My love is for art and it all began when Icould not communicate properly, I needed to use a picture to show it my thoughts. I hate not being able to express my self. 40 yrs later here I am able to tell you all the wonders that Art can do for you and others we share it with.
