WE ARE NOW TAKING PROCESSING SLOT RESERVATIONS, BUT PLEASE NOTE FOR SPINNING WE ARE CURRENTLY BOOKING SLOTS 6 – 8 MONTHS AHEAD. HOWEVER FOR OPENING, CARDING, RUG YARN MAKING OR ROVING THE WAIT IS MUCH SHORTER.
To reserve your slot please visit the ‘Processing Order Forms’ and download the ‘Fibre Processing Order Form’ then fill in your details and email or post it back to us.
We can process as little as 1kg for carding or 2kg for spinning per batch.
Please contact us to discuss the breed you have, its suitability and your requirements if you are unsure.
As the main input into the mill is wool, which is a renewable material and a carbon sink, we want to ensure that our processing also has as low a carbon footprint as possible. We have been awarded part funding by Low Carbon Dorset as part of the European Regional Development Fund for an Air Source Heat Pump to provide hot water and heating to the mill, and 16kWp of Solar PV to provide electricity. This will save 16.4 tonnes of CO2 a year, and provide 30kWp of new Renewable Energy capacity.
