We are now offering the value added services of weaving blankets and fabrics.
Minimum intake weight required for each end product is 50 lbs of skirted fleece.
Skirted fleece results in higher quality products with less down time on the equipment. Skirting is a simple procedure that can take minutes during the shearing process.
Contact us if you need further information on skirting.
All incoming bags need to be clearly labeled with your farm name and breed. Extra charges may apply toward any excessive time spent skirting and labeling at the mill.
For large orders over 100 lbs. of fleece, a $500.00 deposit is required for each 100 lbs. paid before processing begins.
Orders that are not picked up within 30 days of notification will become the property of Wave Fibre Mill.
Of note: Please check your fleece for scurf. Scurf is a waxy dandruff type contaminant in the wool caused by a mite. It becomes apparent in the carding. Scurf seriously affects the quality of your roving and yarn. In the extreme processing becomes impossible.
Occasionally additional washing is required due to excess vegetation and/or lanolin.
“I’ve had two batches of my fleece processed by Wave Fibre Mill, one brown/charcoal and one white, and they both came back looking amazing. The spinning quality is lovely, a nice balanced 2ply fingering weight that I think will sell nicely through my farm store. The turnover time was less than a couple of months and the communication with Wave and Heather was so easy. They were very helpful with giving advice on what weight of yarn and ply to make the finished product into based on my sheep breeds and I will be going back with next years’ fleeces for the same wonderful treatment!”Brenda Hsueh, Black Sheep Farm, Grey County
