From washing to carded batts or handspun corewrapped yarns, or felts - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out what I can do for your fiber!
This includes two washes and a rinse. Then drying. Additional charge of $3.00/# for heavy grease wools that require two more washes.
This involves running the washed fiber through a Triple Picker to fluff and open up the fiber. This step is necessary to put fiber onto the carding machine. It also makes a great fiber bag to handspin from.
This serivce is when your fiber goes into the carding machine to be combed and layered onto the drum for a batt. Our machine is a Pat Green Commercial Carder and produces batts about 15 inches wide by 5-6 feet long. Usually our batts run between 6-10 ounces per batt, depending on how the fiber type is running.
This is picking through your fleece BEFORE it goes into the wash tubs to remove Vegetable Matter, dirt, manure, and second cuts or shorts.
This service uses Jacquard acid dyes to dye fiber and yarns. You send us your fiber to dye...... and then we will wash and set it. Additionally you can then have us card it if you wish, please see pricing for carding service.
This service involves washing your fiber and then handspinning a corewraped yarn using your washed and picked fiber for a wonderful bulky handspun yarn with lots of texture. Unique and hand weavers love it!
This service involves using carded batts and wet felting them into flat sheets using my progressive roller felter. I then full my felts in the washing machine to create a very sturdy piece of fabric, however it isn't a perfect process, and holes can appear in the felts. Each felt crafted here is unique.
