At Twisted Sisters our aim is to produce a good quality end product for our customers. You can help us achieve our goal by having your fibre sorted and as clean as possible before processing. Clean fibre reduces waste and increases the quality of your finished products. Buy or build a sorting table, lay your fleece out and skirt it well, shake your fleece to get out excess debris and dirt/dust. If you are not sure how to skirt and sort, ask a friend or sign up for a course, it is not difficult and it will add value to your fleece.
Our prices are based on finished weight. We do accept small lots - our minimum finished weight requirements is 2 lbs. - although bigger lots reduce waste and save money. You may want to consider combining compatible fibre.
At Twisted Sisters we prefer to spin Alpaca Fibre, as that is what we know best, we have raised these wonderful animals for several years and the bulk of our custom processing is alpaca. We will card other natural fibres into rovings, batts or lap/lap, we just do not have the experience to spin these fibres into yarn.
