Washing is the most important step to quality fiber processing, whether for roving, yarn or felt. We prefer to wash your fibers in the mill to assure you of getting quality finished product in return.

Spinderella's hand washes every fleece in a separate tub, going through 2 or three washes and around 3 -4 rinses to rid the fleeces of grease, dirt and oils. Each wash takes approximately three hours and Lynn can wash about 10 pounds of fiber per tub.
Once washed,we dry the  fiber on our drying racks under gentle fans. We continue to hand fluff the fibers as it is drying.  It can  take from 24- 72 hours to fully dry.

We use Dawn, as we have found it cleans the fibers well and is gentle on the fibers. Is is also good on the pocket book. We have tried using expensive soaps, but feel there is no benefit to how the fiber feels after washing. If we actually found a benefit to using them we certainly would, but would have to pass the added costs on to you.

If you have washed your fibers, you will be charged the carding charge only, if the fibers are clean enough to be carded. Often dirt and lanolin are left on fleeces sent in by customers and we will wash them without contacting you about further processing costs. So please be careful when sending in "clean fleeces."

Carding

Placeholder Picture

Carding is a process that combs or brushes fiber to produce a continuous web or roving suitable for spinning or felting. This is achieved by passing the fibers between differentially moving surfaces covered with card clothing.
Our carder is named "Meriwether".

Spinderellas can process your raw wool into roving or batts or clouds. The price includes hand picking the locks open, as we feel pickers are too agressive on most fibers, tumbling, and carding your fibers into rovings or batts. Often we will run a fiber through our carder twice to remove heavy veggie matter. You will be charged for that as well as extra for the wear and tear on the carding cloth due to heavy VM.

Though many companies charge based on incoming weight, from start to finish, we separate the cost for washing and carding separately. We feel this is the only fair way to charge you, as we have no idea what will be lost in washing, tumbling and carding.

If you have washed your fibers, you will be charged the carding charge only, if the fibers are clean enough to be carded. Often dirt and lanolin are left on fleeces sent in by customers and we will wash them without contacting you about further processing costs. So please be careful when sending in "clean fleeces."

Prices are for ALL fiber types.
NOTE : WE DO NOT PROCESS ANGORA RABBIT !!
Lynn is very alergic to rabbit fluff.

Also note that there are times we are not able to card your fibers into a roving without the addition of wool.
We do have these fibers available for purchase.

Spinning Beautiful Yarns

Variety of yarns by Spinderellas

Spinning is the art of twisting fiber into a continuous thread by using a spinning wheel or drop spindle or in our case a ring spinner. The thread or yarn is spun thick or thin, plied or un-plied, and can later be dyed or left natural. Many fibers can be spun to make an incredible yarn. We spin wool, alpaca, mohair, blended with each other or adding the likes of bamboo, silk, threads, sparkle, etc.

The spinning services at Spinderella's Creations and Fiber Mill have met with rave reviews from small ranch and animal lovers across the continental US and Alaska. Jim will spin yarns to your specifications and present you with a quality yarn you’ll be pleased to use and sell.

We offer one, two or three ply yarns from lace to bulky, and very thick yarns the size of your pinky finger, we call Big Stitches Squishy Yarn, and Rug Yarn.

We love to create fun yarns with your fibers too. We can dye them or add other colored fibers like merino or bamboo to make a colorful blend. We call them Twist yarns. They are the yarns in the photos that look "tweedy". We can also make "ragg yarns" which are the barbar pole look in the photos.
These are an extra $1 per pound.

If you’re not sure what you want, we’ll be happy to offer our advice. If you have a favored yarn, we ask you send a 12" sample for Jim to try and match. Our goal is to provide you with the best yarn possible from each of your fleeces. All fiber is good for something, whether that be a lovely lace weight yarn or a rug yarn, if you are not sure, we can help.
