Custom Milling Services 

Our business philosophy for custom milling services is to produce quality 100% natural fibre products for alpaca farmers.  Whether you have a herd of 5 or 20 (or more) - we will work with you to understand your needs. If you are new to processing alpaca fibre - we understand it can be a bit daunting to think what you need to do or what you can make.  We remember that feeling very well and we are here to help you realize it's really not as complicated as everything you read on line.  


Our mill offers a complete line of products to suite your needs including custom blending and dehairing services We can help you transform your fleece into farm spun yarns (2 or 3 ply), cotton core yarns, rug yarns, rovings and/or quilt batts.  


Our pricing is competitive and is based upon the finished weight for products ordered and services rendered.  You are not charged on incoming weight, which tends to have a large percentage of dirt/vegetation and adds costs to the service.  We take extra care and attention to thoroughly clean (wash) all incoming fibre before milling begins.   It  makes a world of difference to the milling process and the final product you receive. You will also have the option of drop off/pick up to save on shipping costs.

If you decide to go ahead with our milling services, we will prepare a Custom Milling Service Quote in advance for your review and approval.  Our service quotes will include an estimated date when your services will be complete.  We know how important it is for you to understand when you will receive your finished products - as you have a business to run too! After you review and approve your service quote, a deposit is required to secure a milling date.  Additional information will be shared with you on how to prepare your fleece in advance; and to make arrangements for shipping or drop off of fleece.
