Custom Fleece Processing Pricing

Preparation: The following costs are on the raw unwashed weight of your fleece.


Skirting- $25/per fleece.      Please skirt your fleece well before sending it in to be processed.  This is very time consuming, and I charge $25 for each fleece that needs  skirting.


Washing (average grease/dirt)- $4.50/lb. raw weight.     This includes most fleeces in the grease  with average dirt.


Washing (extreme grease/dirt)- $7.00/lb. raw weight.     This would be extra greasy fleeces such as Merino, Bond, Cormo, etc. and very dirty fleeces.


Separate Fleece by color- $2.00/lb. raw weight. You might consider this option if you have a multi color fleece such as a Jacob. For example fleece could be separated into black, white, and gray.


Separate Fleece by type- $ 2.00/lb. raw weight.     If you have a fleece with obvious britch wool, you might want that processed into separate batts/roving.


Processing:The following costs are based on the clean washed weight of your fleece.


Pick and card to batt (17in x 38in) medium wool/average VM- $ 8.00/lb. washed weight.     This price is for most medium wools such as Corriedale with average VM.


Pick and card to hand dizzed roving; medium wool/average VM- $11.00/lb. washed weight.     This price is for most medium wools such as Corriedale with average VM.
