SUPPLIED FIBRE REQUIREMENTS

Consistency/Quality

  • Staple length: Staple lengths should be consistent throughout the supplied fibre to ensure a consistent final yarn. Our machines can spin staple lengths between 70 - 120mm.
  • Micron consistency: Avoid mixing fine and coarse micron fleece together.
  • Minimal vegetable matter: Any excessive vegetable matter will increase wastage during the scouring, top processing and spinning stages.
  • All fibre provided for projects must be commercially scoured and combed to industry standards by a third party. We can provide a list of contacts who are able to prepare your fleece for spinning.

These requirements are a guideline to ensure a consistent and quality finished product. We want you to be satisfied with your final product.

We reserve the right to halt a spinning project due to excessive vegetable matter, poor fibre quality or unsuitable staple lengths.

Our aim is to provide our customers with the absolute best quality yarn and service to ensure total satisfaction.
