Spinning of Your Fiber
Spinning charges generally include spinning into singles,plying and coning. Prices are based on the size of the single that we have to spin to create your finished yarn. Skeining and final wash are extra. Our skeins are 4 oz. unless specified. * $100 minimum charge (this equates to about 4-lbs of wool or 3-lbs of alpaca) * Minimum charges are per order, not per batch. Spinning prices do not include carding charges, initial washing or dyeing. The following table describes common yarn terms and describes the characteristics of each to allow you to get a feel for the type of yarn you may wish to order. If you have something specific in mind, it is best to include a sample so that we may match it.
