Custom Processing Pricing

  • Due to severe allergies- we do NOT process RABBIT

  • We DO NOT take alpaca 3rds- use them for mulch please

  • Know that we are not able to spin Alpaca 2nds or coarse blankets into anything but rug yarn

  • If you do not put an order form or a contact into in the bag we will not process the fiber at the time it is pulled to start processing and will be sent to the city compost - we cannot store fiber - we cannot store fiber or contact a medium to tell us who it belongs to - ( wink wink) 

  • If any of your fiber comes into the mill for processing with bugs- eggs or larva- it will be tossed IMMEDIATELY!! This is why it is best to process your fibers as soon as you shear- especially for alpaca- alpaca seems to attract moths more than wool.

  • AGAIN: WE DO NOT GIVE MILL TOURS- we simply have no time with running the business and taking care of 2 handicapped "kiddos". Thank you for understanding. 

WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY NEW CUSTOMERS WITHOUT APPROVAL - No NEW Alpaca customers at this time.

TO KEEP OUR TURN AROUND TIME TO UNDER 8 MONTH

IF WE PROCESS YOUR FIBERS WE WASH IT-

though we have approved a few customers to wash their own fleeces, clean for you is not clean for our machines.

This causes issues with the end product, not to mention our equipment and the time it takes to stop the flow of our mill

to wash a batch of fiber that was said to be clean. If you want to prewash your fibers to save on shipping and washing weights, know that we will still wash your fibers and you will still be charged.

We love creating beautiful roving and yarn for you and that will not happen with dirty fiber.

Thrums yarn

Spinderellas Thrums Yarn

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ADD MERINO TO ALPACA , LONG WOOL, & MOHAIR SPINNING ORDERS.

IF YOU DO NOT WANT MERINO ADDED TO YOUR FIBERS- LET US KNOW AND WE WILL SEND THE FIBER BACK AS ROVING.

Why?  Elasticity is determined by the scales of a fiber. Alpaca is stretchy, due to the scales of the fiber being short and smooth.

The fiber of alpaca do not  "lock" together well. 

This results in 100% alpaca yarns having a tendency to stretch, and unlike wool it will not shrink back into place when washed.

Not sure what weight of yarn you want?

Here is an easy way to figure it out. 

Take a skein of commercial yarn you love working with and look at the wrapper. It will tell you approximate yardage for the weight.

Many times it will have the yarn in grams. We round the grams to ounce. 

Take the number of grams and convert to ounces 

Equation: 16 divided by # of ounces x yardage will give you  yards per pound (ypp)

Example: 204 yards  is 50 grams

Take 16 ( ounces) and divide it by 1.76 ( ounces per 50 grams) = 9.09

Multiply 9.09 and the number of yards, in this case 204 = 1854 yards in one pound. ( our fingering)

A Word about Plies

There's more to a plied yarn than you might think; below are some characteristics of different yarn constructions. At Spinderella's, the  number of plies refers to the number of strands of singles spun within the yarn. Often in commercial yarns, especially in the UK and Australia, the ply number is used as a yarn weight. For instance, a fingering weight yarn is often called "4-ply", regardless of how many strands the yarn actually has.

  • Single Ply - As the name suggests, this is just one strand, or ply of fiber. In a single ply yarn, you might end up with  a biased piece of knitting  and pills easily. This is due to the fiber being twisted in one direction. It is a round yarn and when knitting with ir, allows individual stitched to fill all spaces available to them, leaving a "cozy" feel to the fabric. Singles should not be used in a piece that will get a lot of wear because it will pill and come apart.

  • Two Ply-  This yarn is flatter but has a wavy look to them. Two single plies of yarn are wrapping around each other, giving strength and durability to a finished piece. It is a balanced yarn, and will not skew in one direction like a single ply. It's wavy edge makes for for color-work yarn due to the ease of blending the borders of color changes. They are also traditionally used for lace knitting.

  • Three Ply - Three-ply yarns are more durable and rounder than single or two-ply yarns. Each ply of yarn adds to the durability of the yarn since much more of the surface of the fibers are exposed. Lynn likes the look of a 3 ply yarn, and it adds to stitch definition. While the more plies you add also adds to the density of the yarn because the amount of available space is taken up in each ply.  You might want to consider that for your projects.

Frequently asked questions

Do I get my own fiber back?


Yes- ALWAYS! That's why we call it custom processing. We process your natural fibers just for you the way you want it done. :-) We are always looking for ways to not only improve our techniques, but also coming up with "different" looks. We want you to STAND OUT in the crowd if selling your wares. We also treat it as if it were our own fiber. Often we will contact you if we think there is a better process for your fibers. Example- a coarser fiber you want to be lace weight yarn might be better spun as a thick single or rug yarn.




Can there be more charges?


Yes- here is a list of additional charges: 1. Extra Washing due to very dirty fibers - $2.50 incoming weight 2. Dyeing your fibers - $15 per color batch based on the incoming weight - up to 3 pounds 3. Heavy VM Charge due to wear & tear of our machines - $2.50 per pound finished weight 4. Skirting your fibers- $2.50 per pound incoming weight 5. Addition of merino at current price of $2.00 per ounce - pound pricing available. 6. Addition of other fibers, call or write for pricing. Remember, there is a 2 pound minimum charge on all processing charges

Assurance for Quality Products Guarantee


Your satifation is of utmost importance at Spinderellas Creations. We understans that we are working with your precious, often, pets. We will treat your fiber as if it is our own. Jim is the Master Spinner at Spinderellas and personally guarantees to give you the best quality product possible from your fiber. Jim is able to look at a sample of yarn and match it with your fibers. It is best to send in a sample of the same fiber type, since each fiber spins differently. Understand that fibers are not all created equal and often you will not recieve a "perfect" store bought yarn. There are often soft spun fibers in your yarn, due to varied lengths of fiber over 1" in length. Jim usually writes on your order form reasons why this happened. Jim and Lynn treat your fibers as if they were their own. Lynn may contact you to suggest other ways to use your fibers to optimize the uniquenss of your fibers. For instance, someone wanting yarn from a course fiber, may be better served as rug yarn. If something doesn't go quite right, as it sometimes does when working with natural fiber, we will either offer a discount or buy back the yarn, minus shipping, Your satisfaction is important. We know if you cannot work with or sell the product(s) they are of no use to you. We promise we make it right If you are ever disappointed with the quality of our work, we NEED to hear from you. We have no way of knowing unless you communicate with us! We also listen to you, a suggestion, another way of looking at things. That is how we all learn.
