For custom processing please keep the following in mind:

  • We will work with you to design yarns which enhance your fibers. The quality of the yarns is directly related to the quality of the fiber provided.
  • The best quality yarns are made from fleece and fibers which are: clean and free of chaff, burrs, tags, at least 3" staple length and free of short belly wool and second cuts.
  • Please ship your fleece in clear, heavy-weight plastic bags or cardboard boxes (NO PLASTIC GRAIN BAGS).
  • We reserve the right to reject fleece that does not meet our minimum specifications.
  • We will lightly skirt your fleece prior to scouring.
