Bulk Fiber Processing

While we will do small orders (2-1/2 lb) the following prices are for larger orders. 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.

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.

These prices are if you ship the fiber to the mill. (prices for sheep wool and Hau alpaca only. Call for bulk rates forother exotics.
