Fiber Washing $7 per lb
Washing is based on incoming weight prior to additional processing. All fleeces are given two washes and two rinses. If the fleece needs additional washing we will charge an additional $2 per lb per wash until the fleece is clean. If you only want us to wash the fiber, we will wash and pick it for an extra $2 a lb. ‚Äč

Picked only (picked cloud)  $9.50 lb
Once the fiber is washed, we will run it through the picker to open up the fibers.

Picking, carding into roving, batting $16 per lb 
Once the fiber is washed we will pick it and card it into roving or batting.

Shipping charges will be added to the final bill.

  • We will blend fine fibers or blend coarse fibers, natural & dyed color mixes.
  • We do custom dyeing.
  • We will card each order individually.

Processing Sheep Wool, Llama, and Alpaca
  • Please skirt your fleece and make sure that it is not contaminated with manure, plastic baling twine, hoof trimmings, sticks, stones, burdock, large stickers, wire, etc.
  • The cleaner you get your fiber before you send it, the cleaner you'll get it back. Machines can only remove so much and you will get the rest back in the product if there is too much.
  • All fibers must be washed before carding.
  • Do not send tightly matted or felted fleece, these will be sent back to you at your cost.
  • If your fiber is over 6 inches long it may need to be cut, you will be called if so.
  • If an animal has been stressed or ill, it will show in the fleece. Check for break points and scurf. These will be processed but will show up in your final product.
  • Guard hair does not card out and we only pick out very obvious hairs.
  • White, black or dark fleece shows remaining debris the most. What you get back depends on what you send. We can only pick out so much VM!
