Mill Services

We are not currently accepting Suri

Tumbling, washing, and picking:  All incoming fiber is sent to the tumbler to help remove vegetable matter (VM), dirt, and any second cuts that are hanging on the fiber.  From there the fiber is washed, dried, and opened by picking.  These services are included in the price of our roving, batts, and yarn.  

Fiber separator: The fiber separator is used to remove guard hair and VM prior to taking your fiber to the carder.  Not all fleeces require the separator.  Those that do go through the separator come out as a fine web of fiber or “cloud”, ready for the carder.

Carding: We can card your fiber into roving or batts. 

Rug Yarn: If you have seconds piling up on you at home, you might consider using them for rug yarn.  The core is 4 ply cotton that the carder wraps your fiber around.  Great for weaving rugs!

Spinning: We make skeins of 200 yd, unless otherwise discussed.  We can also leave your yarn on cones.
