Contract Fleece Processing for Micro-flocks, Spinners & Weavers
When we started with just four sheep, we found it impossible to find anyone willing to process our wool, so we had to bite the bullet and learn to do it ourselves.
Using small-scale equipment aimed at the hobby market, as well as the odd fortuitous Ebay find, has worked well for us for the past six years. However, since our flock has now grown to more than 60 sheep, the processing has become a full-time job in and of itself. As a result, we have had to expand our processing to include some larger professional machinery, which means that we now able to process our own fleece in a matter of weeks, rather than the months it previously took.
A happy by-product of this increase in capacity is our ability to offer other Micro-flock or fleece owners a Contract Fleece Processing service, even if you only need to process a single fleece. We plan to offer Contract processing and bespoke dying, if required: “From the sheep’s back to a Carded Sliver or batt”.
We are still getting used to our new bigger toys so, at the moment, we are only accepting Expressions of Interest for Contract Processing, however, we do plan to be in full-scale production by the end of 2020, but spaces will be limited...
So, if you own a small number of sheep or are a Spinner or Weaver that has bought a single fleece ‘In the Grease’ and don’t want the hassle of Scouring and Carding it yourself, why not contact us to discuss your requirements or Reserve a Processing Slot.
