Looks like another new fibre processing mill is about to start taking orders. Fairly high minimum weights though, but their prices look competitive!

Wish I had space for my own sheep

Was it just me, but I didn't notice their prices?

I have a brochure here from the weekend, 16.50 per kilo (light aran or Aran wight) going down to 14.50 if you send in 51kg or more

Oh good, maybe a serious competitor for the NFC

Sounds like there are a few new mills opening. Moral Fibre said they are getting micro mill machinery for people with just one or two fleece, though that does run rather more expensive. Nice to see its getting easier to have fleece dealt with!

Indeed. At one time it was impossible. I think the ERDP grants have played a significant part in this

It was lovely to see so many attractively balled natural coloured wools from single flocks at the show at the weekend. Really spoilt for choice, I think it would have been possible to buy maybe 20 or 30 different wools, colours and producers and still not have had any duplicates.
