Custom Fiber Processing Pricing

We will be increasing our prices in January.

To assist in understanding our pricing, our packages list the end product, including all services provided in that processing, followed by the price for the total package. We wash all incoming orders to ensure quality care of our milling machinery and the end quality of your product. All prices are based on incoming weight unless otherwise noted. A short wash is available for fiber that has already been scoured (Please place note in the comments area if so desired).

All fleeces must be heavily skirted, removing all belly wool, dung tags, vegetation, etc. Fleeces arriving without proper skirting will be sent back at the owner's expense. Please refer to this Fiber Harvest Code of Practice document.

Dehairing adds considerable value to your products, and we highly recommend it! You will appreciate the added softness and warmth this process brings to your fiber. Also, the by-products can be felted if you desire.

If you are a high volume fiber producer of alpaca, llama, or icelandic, we have large order batch pricing available.

We've designed an interactive worksheet to allow for improved communication between us and you in receiving fleeces. This worksheet allows you to approximate your cost for processing. To properly use this worksheet scripting must be enabled on your browser. Using this worksheet will allow you to know how much payment to send along with your shipment (all processing is paid for up front). Use the "Print this Form" button and a printable page will pop up that should be printed and placed in each bag of fleece (and you can print or copy an extra one for your records if you would like). When your fleece and printed forms arrive here, we will send you an estimate and wait for any additional payment that may be necessary. Please be sure and fill in the contact information (phone, email, address, etc). Thank you for allowing us to serve you in this way.
