Traditional Processing Services

Selecting Traditional Custom Processing allows the customer to bring in their fiber to the mill and select from Bartlettyarns line of yarns and rovings in over 65+ colors. This traditional method at Bartlettyarns allows for wool of like quality to be pooled together with similar fleece. There are no minimums.

Option #1

Out-Right Purchase

Customer brings in fleece and wants to sell directly to Bartlettyarns. The customer receives monetary payment in the form of a check issued by us only after the total greased weight minus packaging materials is determined by Bartlettyarns warehouse staff.

Option #2

Traditional Custom

There are no minimums for traditional custom processing. The greased wool is brought to Bartlettyarns and is weighed in, less packaging materials by our staff. Receipt is forwarded to the office of the total greased weight available. The office staff determines the total pounds using the following method:

Calculation Method:

Total Greased Weight(Less greased weight for blankets sweaters or other finished goods) = Net Greased Weight
Net Greased Weight x .45 = Total Pounds of Finished Yarn or Roving

Option #3

Even Exchange-No Money Involved

On a case by case basis, at Bartlettyarns discretion and after inspecting the wool, we may opt to exchange wool for finished yarn/roving. The ratio is 40:1, which means for every 40 pounds of greased wool, one pound of finished wool or roving can be obtained.

Option #4

Traditional Custom Processing and Out-Right Purchase Hybrid

On a case by case basis, Bartlettyarns will consider a partial traditional custom processing order and purchase the remaining greased wool balance. The greased wool total less wool used for traditional processing = remaining greased wool balance for which an out right purchase is calculated. A processing fee may still be due after this calculation.
