Bulk Fiber Processing


While we will do small orders (3 lb.) we do offer discounts on bulk orders exceeding 500 lb. To achieve "bulk" weight you are rated on incoming weights, however you are still charged on out-going weight. Bulk rates must be agreed upon, and all fiber must arrive at the mill within a 7 day period.  Please phone for pricing

We do not use Lenospin on our exotic fibers, producing a smooth, knot free, slub free and chemical free yarn. A yarn that is safe on the environment and the people using your yarns.

WPI – Wraps per inch
YPP – Yards per pound
Lace – 35 WPI, 3000 YPP or greater
Fingering – 19 to 22 WPI, 1800 to 2200 YPP
