We will be at Black Sheep Gathering June 20th through the 22nd for fiber pick up. Please let us know in advance if you want us to pick up fiber for processing so we can determine what vehicle we need to bring to the gathering.
We can currently offer fairly short turn around times on roving. Contact us for more information.
Columbia Custom Carding LLC is a fiber mill. We are located in Deer Island Oregon. We will process your raw fiber. We offer the following services for wool, alpaca, llama, angora and mohair fibers:
Scouring: Washing and drying of the fiber.
Tumbling: Opening of the fiber in our duster either prior to or after the scouring.
Picking/Opening: Opening of the fiber in our picker to allow for carding.
Carding: Straighten and align the fiber into a more organized form and gather into a sliver of roving.
Pin Drafting: Combing and further drafting of the slivers to prepare them for spinning.
Blending: Mixing of different colors or types of fibers to obtain different properties from the mixed fiber.
Spinning: Twisting of the parallel fibers into yarn.
We will turn your fiber into roving for you to hand spin or we can pin-draft the roving and spin it into yarn for you. We are happy to answer questions for you so feel free to contact us as necessary.
What could you do with some nice carded roving or pin drafted top? Perhaps you could use some alpaca yarn or a custom blend of fibers for a special project. What ever your need; give us a call and we can discuss how Columbia Custom Carding LLC may help you out.
