Please skirt your fiber well. It reduces incoming weight and saves you money. Skirting in the mill is $45.00/hour.
Staple length should be between 2.5 inches to 6 inches for making yarn. Yarns made with fiber of at least 3 inches have great tensile strength.
Staple length may be up to 7.5 inches for roving and batts or core-spun yarns.
We can't process fiber that contains toenail clippings, excessive hay and vegetable matter, burrs, manure, dead mice (yes, you read that correctly,) mats, clumps of mud, or any evidence of moths.
We cannot process fiber from sheep kept with wood shavings as they may damage our machinery.
The better that you've sorted your wool, the better that the finished product will be.
We reserve the right to refuse any fiber for processing.
