Spring Too Fibers – our mill


Mom and Dad dropped our fiber off at the mill on Monday! It’s amazing how fast I went through all our roving from last year, so I’m really looking forward to having this year’s fiber.

Andrew, at Spring Too Fibers, will have our roving for us in 6-8 weeks, at the latest. His mill is one of only two or three in our state that is equipped for so-called exotic fibers, so they get overloaded fast during shearing season. They will tumble, wash, and card our fiber, saving us days worth of work. By the time we get it back, only the fun part (spinning) remains to be done!

Like everyone we work with in this industry, we love Andrew. He also has alpacas, and they are adorable. Many people seem to start with the animals, see a need (like Scott, who became a shearer or Andrew who built himself a mill) and then go fill it. I wonder what we’ll end up doing, in addition to raising the animals?

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
