I purchased my yurt from a friend. There was damage to the felt from pack rats and the lattice had to be repaired. My dear friend Julie and I repaired 6 panels in all. She only got me with the dremel tool once! We were working inside due to it being winter and we would have to go outside to burn the ends of each piece we used to knot. December 2015. There was some mold damage that occurred during storage so each piece was sprayed with a natural marine grade mold inhibitor.
