Fleece processing
« on: October 05, 2015, 04:04:48 pm »
Can anyone recommend a fleece processing mill for 3 alpaca and 8 small sheep fleeces?  I don't have the first idea how to go about it and I imagine it will be quite expensive to have it made into balls of knitting wool.  Any advice/guidance much appreciated  :sheep: :llama:

Griffiths Mill do small quantities.  They'd certainly do the sheep for you but I don't know about alpaca - have a chat to Karen.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
