Super fine wools will noil or pill in the carding process. 
To avoid this we recommend combed tops to remove all noils and pilling.

NO ADULT MOHAIR for Pencil Roving.

You may have your fibers dyed prior to a run at $8.00 per clean lb. See dye chart for choices.

The following chart is for large volumes of fiber to be scoured, and then processed by Zeilinger Wool at prewash prices. Contact gary@zwool.com, or info@zwool.com.
Wool costs are based on medium wools.
Fine wools add 50 cents.

The washing rates are for a single run of fiber, not split up into 2-4 runs, etc.

Pindrafting

Pindrafting consists of aligning your fibers parallel after completion of the roving process for easier spinning. Pindrafted roving can be put into bumps which are usually 1# but can be made heavier. Pindrafted roving can also be loose which is coiled in a bag. Pindrafting charges are $2.90 a pound on finished weight.
