Mill Services and Custom Processing
Washing services include skirting and washing your fiber in biodegradable soap. We charge $5.00 per pound based on weight in the door. We do not have a minimum weight to wash, but we have a minimum $50.00 charge for washing and skirting. For camelids, washing also includes tumbling your fiber. For camelids, you can select to forgo washing and have the fiber skirted and tumbled for $2.00 per pound then go straight to opening. There is a $10.00 minimum charge for skirting and tumbling.
Instructions for sending fiber:
You can mail your fiber to our address on the contact page. Please send a contact letting us know the fiber is coming, the service you are requesting, and if possible, the tracking number. We will contact you when we receive the fiber, and once it is processed, you will receive an invoice through email. Once we receive payment your fiber will be shipped. If we have any questions or concerns about your fiber, we will contact you for clarification.
Processing will be on a first come first serve basis. We will let you know when we receive your fiber an approximate processing time.
