Fiber Processing and Yarn Spinning

Yarn & Fiber Processing on the Puget Sound

image40

As a fiber enthusiast......

I longed for yarns that 'fit' the one of a kind item I was creating. 

So I learned to spin...  I attended many North West regional fiber events, learning about the many different breeds. Most importantly, to meet the farmers who produced the fiber...

Its all about the Fiber

Most farmers expressed a need to get their fiber to the customers in a marketable form, ready to use. The 'Hobby' farmer had too small of batches to be accepted by many fiber mills.... 


Many Fiber artists struggled to find a local mill to process their fiber.


This mill strives to offer services to all;  from the farm to yarn, in small  batches.

Equipment!

During my research of fiber mills, I came across one, in Oregon, who was retiring and liquidating their equipment. Fingers crossed and with a great leap of faith I paid for the equipment and moved residence to set up my own Fiber Mill. I am using 100% Mini Mills equipment from Canada, perfectly suited for fine micron count fibers.


Over looking the South end of the Puget Sound I'm ready to --- Scour; Pick; Card; Draw; Spin; Ply; and Skein up.

 

You Choose what to do with your fiber.

Fiber Mill News

2019 is here. The first full year in business has come to a close. Much has been learned, repaired and built; with more improvements to come.


Based on customers requests, Soundview Fiber Mill is now offering two new products. 


Cloud, which is a carded fiber perfectly suited for hand spinning woolen yarns. 


Braids;  allows you to easily dye before spinning, and creates any easily resalable product for your farm.


**********



New Prices!!


This price structure is a little more complex. The intention is to reflect the quantity of fiber received back, after processing.


New Price EXAMPLE:

Average wool fleece weighs in at 6 pounds.

Assuming the usual 25% wash out of grease and dirt & fiber loss during processing...

19 finished skeins of worsted weight yarn are returned to you, weighing approx. 3.8 ounces each for a total return weight of 4.5 pounds of yarn.

Washing  ---  6 x $7.50 = $45.00

Spinning ---  4.5 x $28.00 = $126.00

total cost = $171.00 (+tax)

Cost per skein = $9.00


This is just an example, each fleece washes out at different rates.
