Fiber Sorting & Grading for the mill

Service Description

Have a barn or basement filled with bags of fiber and no time to decide what to do with it all? I can help!
I studied the Canadian method of sorting & grading with Ruth Elvestad and recently took a refresher course with Wini LaBreque.
I can evaluate your fiber and suggest the best end products. Beyond the classroom, working part-time in a fiber mill gave me valuable 'hands on' experience in recognizing fiber qualities and determining the best uses of that fiber.

After grading your fiber, I can skirt, sort & prepare it for the mill. Then return it to you or forward it on to the mill of your choice.

Terms of Service

Exact charge per pound is determined by condition of fleece when it is received. Condition is determined by previous skirting, cleanliness, amount of vegetation or debris, second cuts, etc. A 50% deposit is required with balance to be paid in full at time of pick up or prior to delivery, shipping, etc. I can deliver to a local mill for you, otherwise shipping and handling charges are determined by weight and final destination. Insurance is optional.

Please let me know the amount of fiber you would like to send and when, so I can schedule it and give you an estimated time of completion. If you need your fiber sorting completed by a certain date, please contact me. My schedule naturally fills up right before a show in the area or right after shearing in the spring.
