Fiber Processing

Complicated pricinig systems for fiber processing drove us mad.  Our answer...a single flat rate processing charge.

The processing of fiber at Shenandoah Fiber and Mill is an art.  We tenderly clean your raw fiber and prepare it for processing.  Our new mill equipment is made to handle the fiber with care and to create either roving or yarn of the highest quality.

If at times, portions of your fiber are too coarse be used for yarn or roving, they are separated and used to make alpaca felt blankets for the homeless.  This supports our planet-friendly production practices.

We receive your fiber at our mail "mini-barn" located just off the main road.  Gracie, the Golden Retriever Mill Assistant, joins us in the Gator for our daily pick-up and drive along the old abandoned railroad bed that is the entrance to our farm.  In our Receiving Room, your fiber is weighed, cataloged, cross-checked with the results of your "on-line cost estimator" order form, and placed in the queue for processing.

We charge $32.00 per pound of finished product for wool; $34.00 per pound of finished product for Huacaya; $38.00 for Suri or other exotics (which we blend with Huacaya for stability through the process).  The price includes all steps of the process:

  • Sorting, Tumbling & Washing
  • Picking & Carding
  • Pin Drafting into roving
  • Spinning/Plying/Skein or Cone Winding
  • Skein washing is available at an additional charge of $2.00 per skein
