Fiber Processing

Important Note:  We have reached a one year backlog for our queue and we've maxed out our storage capacity for fiber.  We are taking a pause from accepting new fiber until we shorten the queue for our customers.  Please check back regularly to see when we will be accepting new fiber again.

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:
