Although I do no advertising, I have found that word of mouth is a powerful thing. I do appreciate everybody who has been so supportive of my mill and who has recommended me to others. With each change and effort we make to be more efficient and productive, the onslaught of incoming fleeces increases again. I do not turn away work but the wait for your processing is going to be many months. I have limited options for shortening my lead times. Currently, the backlog time is about 8 months. In my effort to maintain a very high degree of quality, I refuse to cut corners in the processing of your fiber. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience. Please contact me if you require expedited service for special circumstances and I can try to work something out. email@example.com
Welcome to our web site! Please take a moment to bookmark this site. I have to thank my husband for all of his diligent work (and patience with me!) putting this together. Let us know if you run into any problems with this site or have suggestions or input.
I am a fiber processor located on the central coast of California, about halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. I do washing (scouring), picking, carding to batts or roving, pin drafting and felt rugs or felt fabrics. I do not spin to yarn. My pin drafted roving comes in a beautiful coil similar to a beehive or a nautical rope coil. It can be pulled for spinning or weaving directly from the box or bag without tangling or breakage. If you are processing your fiber to sell, this coil will make a very nice presentation.
My retail store hours are a minimum of Monday
thru Friday 10am to 4pm PST. I encourage people to call ahead (805-772-9665)
or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
for an appointment that fits their visit to Morro Bay. You can always
ship your fleeces to me via UPS or USPS or any method that is convenient
for you. I have various carriers delivering parcels daily from all over
Although we still process alpaca and llama blanket or firsts fiber at 100%, we no longer offer alpaca and llama seconds and thirds shearing’s at 100%. The seconds (neck fiber) and thirds (belly and leg fiber) of Camelid fibers will need blended with at least 20% wool. Either I can provide the wool or you can send your own along with the llama or alpaca. Usually these lesser quality fibers have minimal crimp, are coarse and have a short staple length which makes for a roving that is difficult to create, let alone spin. We are also no longer carding mohair at 100%. Mohair must be blended with at least 20% wool. We have found 100% mohair and unblended Camelid secondary fibers to be too labor intensive and sometimes unsuccessful to process alone.
We have been offering rovings, yarns and spinning related items on eBay through my eBay store (fiberwurks) and via eBay auctions.
We have been in business since 2002 and I am delighted with the overwhelming positive response from spinners, weavers, felters and farmers. To help with better communication, I have compiled a long list of Frequently Asked Questions and answers. Please read my price list and these FAQ’s for more detailed information on processing, my business and other fiber related questions.
Due to popular demand, I carry Soy Silk, Tussah Silk, Nylon, Tencel, and Firestar which are all sold by the ounce or by the pound. These are fun and new fibers that can be used to create some terrific spinning blends, plys and also pin drafted roving blends.
My husband and I raise suri alpacas which are protected by two wonderful guard llamas. I am happy to show them off and provide any information regarding these animals. We have suri alpacas for sale that are breeding males, gelded pet fiber animals, pregnant females and young females. I also have 3 suri herd sires at my farm available for stud. Feel free to contact me about any of my animals or visit my Alpacas page for more information.
