Raw Fleece Preparation

 

Making high quality woolen products starts at the farm. Flock nutrition and health, feeding practices, and shearing all impact the quality of fleeces you will get off of your flock. Below is a list of resources to help ensure your wool is the highest quality possible before it gets to the mill.

Custom Woolen Mills is always looking to purchase clean, high-quality white and coloured raw wool directly from farmers. We are interested in many different breed-types of wool. If you are a Western Canadian sheep producer and have wool for purchase, please contact us to discuss this option.
