At this time we can process your fleeces into
Roving or Batts (made into 1 lb. batts unless you
request otherwise - - or if your fiber weighs less)
$7/lb. in-coming weight.
(no complicated add-on fees!)**
Incoming weight; includes washing,
picking, and carding into roving or batts
NOTE: Pricing for Core Spun Yarn is $18.50/lb. out-going weight
A $5.00 per pound deposit is required to process your fleeces. After processing, an invoice will be emailed
(or mailed) to you with the remaining balance (as well as the cost to ship your fiber back to you). Once the
balance is paid, your wool will be promptly shipped.
Returned checks will be assessed a $25 fee. We accept checks, money orders and visa or mastercard.
If mailing your wool, please include detailed written instructions for what you want done with your fiber.
Include on a notecard or separate piece of paper inside the box: your name, address and a phone number
(with best time to call), email address and your DEPOSIT check. Do not hesitate to call me with any
questions before mailing your fleece.
You are also invited to deliver your wool to the mill. Please be sure to phone ahead to make an appointment
(989-297-9842). We are happy to give you a wool skirting demonstration if you can come to the mill.
* Prices are subject to change without notice. ** Except when blending our own wool with pet fibers
* Please note that the processing of wool from raw fleece to finished roving or batts will result in a
loss of weight of up to 30% or more, due to washing out the lanolin and dirt, as well as weight loss
We encourage our customers to skirt heavily and pre-wash their fiber before sending it to us so
that they receive the most value for their dollar in their fiber processing needs.
HAND SPINNING SERVICES
I can turn your roving into handspun yarn for
$0.20 per yard (approximately 250 yards per skein, 100
gm/3.5oz. 2 ply). This cost includes all the processing
(washing, picking, carding, blending, spinning and
plying). This service is offered especially for the
non-spinner who desires a specialty yarn and to also
meet the needs of those who would like to take
advantage of our Pet Fur Processing/Blending
Affordable fiber processing for the small farm shepherd!
PET FUR PROCESSING &
We are offering you the chance to have your
favorite dog or cat fur made into roving or yarn.
This will require a percentage of wool be added to
your collected fur; the wool charge will be extra.
Please contact me for more details about this
We are offering our customers the opportunity to
have a more active role in producing products from
their homegrown fibers. You are welcome to make
an appointment to come to the mill and see your
fiber go from raw to product! It's endlessly
fascinating to see raw wool processed. Watch it go
from picked and blended and then carded into
roving, felting batts or even corespun yarns!
Contact Jill at 989-297-9842 for more information.
Re-CARDING - if you have some old rovings or
batts laying around that are dirty/mashed/ugly, etc.,
you can bring them along and recard them! Create
new, exciting fibers from old, abandoned rovings or
batts, right in front of your own eyes.
CORE SPUN YARN
We have a Belfast Mini Mill Yarn Maker and are
ready to process your fiber into value-added
core-spun yarn! $18.50 per pound outgoing weight.
Please see our Rug Yarn page for more
If you are unable or unwilling to skirt your own fleeces, we will do this for you at the rate of $20/raw fleece
(up to 10 lbs; after 10 lbs. there will be an additional charge of $3/lb.) For skirting services, you must pack
each individual fleece into separate bags; do not put them all together.
