Services include: Skirting (prefer customers skirt their own fleeces and remove as much dark fiber, tags, “stuff” as possible), Washing (Scouring), washed fleeces placed on Drying Racks, then to the Picker, fiber is blown into the pressurized Picker Room to be conditioned and moisturized, Picked Locks, then to the Carding Machine.
Final product is a high quality, light, fluffy roving – ready to be spun into yarn. Can produce a wide variety of rovings, plus yarn and rug yarn. Recently added dyeing services and rug weaving.
IMPORTANT: best if raw fleeces are clean, no vegetable matter, and no dark fibers – in order to get a high quality, properly finished roving. Able to do small runs of yarn.
