Do you charge us on the weight that we send in?

How long can I expect it to take for my fleece to be processed?
Waiting time can vary, we are always happy to chat with you at the time as to when you can expect your fleece to be returned.
How do you post the product back?
We can arrange a courier to deliver the finished product back to you.
Is there anything we need to do before our fleece enters the mill?
Fleeces need to have been skirted and any significant veg matter or soiled fleece needs to have been removed.
The fleece should be placed securely in a sealed bag. The bag should be labelled on the inside with the order form and on the outside of the bag your Name and the number of bags you have sent in should be made clear. The order form can be found on the booking page.
Please ensure that you have agreed with us an arrival date for your fleece before it arrives at the mill.
