I do my best to keep the turn around time as short as possible. Please understand equipment does break down and this does affect projected date of completion. Our projected date of completion is not guaranteed. If you must have it by a certain date we can ensure a guaranteed date of completion by enclosing the rush order fee.

Please include a separate form for each fleece. Thank you.

Processing Policy

Drop Off / Shipped Fleeces

  • All fiber must be bagged, tied and instructions (including your name and contact information) included in each bag.  Do NOT ship wet or damp fiber.  If you are ordering yarn, please send a sample of the yarn style you would like us to match as closely as possible to.
  • Upon our receiving your fiber, it will be weighed, opened and evaluated for cleanliness and staple length.  Fleeces that contain high levels of unwanted material will NOT be accepted and will need to be picked up or at owner’s expense, shipped back within 7 days.  Any rejected fleeces remaining after 7 days will be disposed of.  Fleeces containing presence or prior presence of moths will be disposed of immediately and owner notified.  Sterling Wool Mill reserves the right to reject fleeces that do not meet our mill equipment processing standards.
  • Staples lengths we can handle 3"-7".
  • Unless otherwise instructed, each batch of fiber is handled separately. Your own fiber is always returned to you.
  • A 50% deposit per fleece is to be sent along with fleeces. Deposit will be deducted from invoice upon completion. A receipt for this deposit will be emailed to you. Cancelled orders will incur a 4% cancellation fee and will be shipped back at owners expense. How to calculate deposit.  

 

Roving:   Weight of Fiber __________ x $18.00 = ____________   / 2 = deposit
Yarn:       Weight of Fiber __________ x $30.00 = ____________   / 2 = deposit
