Singleton Fiber Processing Mill Opens in Frederick, Maryland

SingletonmillSingleton Fiber Processing Mill – Maryland’s only commercial fiber mill opened at 580 East Church Street, Frederick, Maryland. The Mill has two primary customers: sheep farmers specializing in wool sheep with high grade wool – who process their wool into a value-added roving; and fiber artists who hand-spin roving into yarn for wool products, such as sweaters, socks, mittens, etc.

Singleton takes the fleece through all processing stages: skirting the fleece (prefer customers bring in very clean fleeces); scouring (washing); drying fleece on racks; the combing picker (separates, conditions, moisturizes the fiber); and carding – resulting in a roving fiber to a customer’s specifications. The carding machine is shown in the photo.

Singleton will be at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, May 2-3, 2015.

Mill is unique – no minimum runs, and a fast turnaround time. Go to the “Photo” section of the website. The steps in processing wool into a finished product are shown.

  1. Hi we are an alpaca farm in western new york. Our children live in Maryland. We are checking out fibermills. Here in New York they are very far and in between. Some that have gone out of business or to far to drive. Maryland is far but we are there alot to visit our kids and grand babies. Could you send some info and your price list? Our children live in Pasadena Md which is about 1 hour 20 min. to your mill. Greatly appreciate it. Thank You,
