We are a small family owned Fiber Mill in Wayland Michigan. We have been processing Fiber part time for six years and will grow to full time when we retire in 2021. We mainly see wool, llama and alpaca fiber with occasional mohair. My children help out with the processing and are saving for their future college educations.
We take pride in our work and treat your fiber as if it were our own. We are honored to provide personal service to you, working with you on an individual basis to make a product you can use and be proud of.
We believe in being environmentally responsible. We do not use chemicals that contain caustic or chlorinated solvents, and contain no phosphates. We use non-toxic, biodegradable, eco friendly products that are not classified as dangerous to the environment. As much as possible we process the fiber naturally with no added chemicals.

Please skirt your fiber and remove vegetable matter as much as possible before dropping your fiber off. Any fiber less than 3" inches will be kicked out of the carder and fiber should be a minimum length of 3.5" inches for yarn.
We have customers that bring fiber in to be processed that is a mixture of 1st and 2nd cut which contains lots of very short fiber which makes it very difficult to process. Many times we cannot get this fiber into roving and can only leave it in a cloud state unless it is blended with other fiber.
We've also had fiber dropped off that contains more hay and straw than fiber. We reserve the right to refuse processing on any fiber with excessive vegetable matter in it.
