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 cow, beef cattle, pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
