We have had a lot of small batches sent through some as small as 400grams. While we will process these for you, you need to be aware that we will be applying the minimum charges as listed above $160 for processing a small batch. You need also to remember that a one third loss through the process is normal. These small batches take up to 4 times as long to process. Talk to us about the options available for you.
We have also had a number of batches through that cause problems or do not hold together on the machinery. In future we will not continue to struggle to process these but will stop and return the batch to you. You will be charged for the stage of the process that has been achieved.
We have been sent a number of fleeces heavely contaminated with vegatable matter, If this is at a point where we feel this will damage our machinery we will not process the batch. Cleaning your fleeces is not part of the process cost. Subject to labour being available we can clean your fleece to a point where they will go through the machinery this will be charged at $35 per hour with a minimum charge of $60.
Any fleeces showing signs of moth infestation will be returned.
