Found a mill in Ohio that charges flat price, includes all steps from incoming to finished yarn. $32 per pound. Shipping both ways is extra.
That's lots better than the previous numbers of the Va mill, which was $50~ per pound.
And the Wva mill was...$24. Oh, guess if her prices are the same for this year, I'll have her make lots of sheep & alpaca yarn for resale!
I don’t mean to barge in on the thread...but this whole process seems like an awful lot of work!! Is it very profitable? I’m trying to keep up with those figures, but they read like Chinese to me, since I don’t have sheep, at this point. So, you shear...then separate, then comb, then wash? I would imagine an awful lot of wool is needed to make up a pound. How many sheep do you have? If you have good clippers, and get the gist of it after awhile...how long does it take to shear? Ok, I’ll let you get back to it. The yarn is gorgeous!! I used to knit...back before farming!
