Custom Processing Pricing
Due to severe allergies- we do NOT process RABBIT
WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY NEW CUSTOMERS WITHOUT APPROVAL TO KEEP OUR TURN AROUND TIE TO UNDER 6 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.
Spinning prices include tumbling, carding and spinning and steaming based on a 2 pound finished weight per fleece, unless combining them.
Washing charges are extra base on the incoming weight of your fiber.
We will skein the yard to our yardage at no charge which can be plus or minus 100 or so yards per skein.
If you are selling your yarn , we suggest getting counted skeins. It is a small price to pay to know exactly what the yardage is on your skeins.
We have priced our yarns based on the single we need to spin to obtain your finished yarn.
Spinderellas Thrums Yarn
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ADD MERINO TO ALPACA AND 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)
Yarn Information Video
Please watch the video if you are having us spin yarn for you.
Many new customers contact us panicked with the first yarn order from Spinderellas , but note, we bundle the skeins in about 1 pound lots.
We are getting to old to hand twist all the skeins of yarn we do each year. :-)
Fibers looking like the below photos will be rejected and tossed onsite!!!
