58-161 with 1/4" height?

A contractor from Knoxville, TN says:
I need some 58-161 that is 1/4" in pile height. What do you have?

I'm afraid we don't have a version of the 58-161 with a 1/4" pile height. Are you positive that you need 1/4"? Wool pile sizes tend to be very specific, even going into the 1/32" range. Furthermore, the 58-161 is just touching 5/16", and since it's soft I think you could still possibly use it.
A contractor says:
I need a 11/32" backing and a 7/32" height. What product do you have to match this?

I'm afraid we don't have anything with those exact dimensions. If the 58-161 is too high, you may want to consider giving it a "shave." I've done that in the past by running a single razor blade along its length until I'm at the desired height. Could that method work for you?
