As stated in the bios of all wild rags, if it is out of stock and a pre order, it will take about 4 weeks to get to you! We have experienced some delays with fabric suppliers but our wait time has stayed around the same. If you receive a shipping notification a few days after you order, it just means that I have paid for the postage and put it on a package so that way as soon as your rag(s) are finished, they can be mailed out! Please email with any questions.
