Skirting

$25.00 per fleece

We strongly recommend you skirt your fleece before shipping. This will save you the cost of shipping unwanted material that will be removed and disposed of later.

Color Separation

$25.00 per fleece

Due to the time consuming nature of this task we must charge an additional fee for color separation of fleeces. For example: separating brown and white of Jacob fleeces.
