  • We do not use chemicals when processing your fleece.  
  • If your fleece contains VM it may come back to you with some VM. For alpaca fleeces, we do not use a de-hairer, although some guard hair is removed during processing. If your fleece contains excessive hair, it will come back to you with some hair.  
  • We reserve the right to refuse fleeces that are excessively dirty/ full of VM or that have not been skirted. We may need to wash and pick a fleece before we decide that it is too dirty to be carded. You will be responsible for applicable charges. We will contact you if this is the case.  
  • You can expect to lose between 20% and 40% of the total weight of your fleece during processing.   
  • We spin DK/8-ply yarn under the woollen system.   
  • We have a 3kg minimum amount for yarn production. If you do not have 3kg of fleece and would like us to supplement your fleece with extra fibre, please contact us  

We currently have a 5-month turnaround to complete the processing of your fleece.
