Dear all wonderful backers of Frisenvang's documentary :-) 

We have been working very hard the last 6 weeks and I am so excited to let you know that the documentary film is ready next week.

I will send you a link to the film, so you backers of this project will be the first to see it. As the film will be sent on Danish TV the speak is in Danish so I will also send you the speak in English in a word document, then you can read along as you see the film. It is not possible to attach documents here on Kickstarter so the link and translated speak will be sent to the email you have stated when you backed this project. In case it should for some reason not show up, please let me know :-) 

DK4 - a smaller Danish national TV channel will be showing the documentary, I am still awaiting the launch plan. They will show it several times so the reach will be quite high and hopefully this will attract new customers and more sales. 

I will show the documentary this coming weekend at a big knitting festival in Hillerød here in Denmark. It will run 2 times a day, for 3 days - very excited about that as well.

A small 3 min. version of the film will also soon be ready and we will use this to hopefully create some PR for the project.

From posting pictures and stories on social media from the last trip to Peru we have received several requests for a possibility to visit the alpaca breeders and the artisans in Marcapata. When the film is running we are very sure that there will come more requests like this. So we are right now working on putting together project trips to the Frisenvang project in Peru. All depending on sales of Frisenvang yarn the coming 5 months, as we need to create funds to be able to travel to Peru and set up the trip, we might be able to offer the first project trip in autumn this year. 

We will of course on ongoing basis keep you posted on how things go with the documentary, life in Peru and the project trips :-)

I wil take this opportunity to let you know how greatfull the artisans in Marcapata, the alpaca breeders and not at least us at Frisenvang are for your support to this project, without you there would not be a documentary to share. So once again a huge
