I am so pleased to have received my first order from Painted Sky Fiber Mill. You do a fabulous job! I had a friend recommend your mill to me, and I am so happy they did. From our visit to see your operation, recommendations you gave me on what to do with my llama fiber, and to the great care you took in processing my order and shipping it to us (even on your labeling on our finished product), at every step you have shown care and attention to detail. I look forward to using my beautiful llama yarn in upcoming projects. Thank you to you, and everyone at Painted Sky! "
Welcome to Painted Sky Fiber Mill
Painted Sky Fiber Mill is a family owned and operated fiber mill located on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland. We offer total fiber processing services for all types of natural fibers including Alpaca (Huacaya & Suri), Wool, Llama, Angora, Pygora and more. Services include tumbling, washing, dyeing, blending, picking, separating/dehairing, carding, draw frame, spinning, plying, coning, steaming, and skeining. Our goal is to make the highest quality yarns, rovings or batts from each and every fleece.
We'll process your individual fleeces in their natural colors or offer you ideas on creating some unique color blends by combining multiple fleeces together with ribbon, heather or barber pole blending options.
Looking for something to set your yarns apart from your competition?
Take a look at some the of the beautiful color blends we've created for our customers such as black fiber blended with red bamboo or merino, black fiber blended with turquoise merino, gray fiber with jade or a mulberry merino and lots more. The finished yarns are absolutely beautiful and the color combinations are endless.
Want something a little different than your traditional fawn and brown yarns?
Try over dyeing your fawn and brown fleeces to create some unique and interesting colors. Each fleece takes the dye differently so no two fleeces will look the exact same. We cannot guarantee the final dyed color when overdyeing color fleeces.
Not sure what yarns to make?
No problem. We'll make suggestions on the best color combinations, blending options and yarn weights based on the fiber characteristics of each fleece. Stop by for visit, give us a call or send an email with any questions and we'll be happy to discuss with you.
We require fleeces to be skirted before sending to the fiber mill.
Fleeces should be skirted before sending to the fiber mill. We only offer skirting services for fleeces with very light vegetable matter. Skirting fleeces will add additional processing time and costs to your order. We will not skirt cria fleeces (skirting cria fleeces is an act of love) or fleeces containing heavy vegetable matter. They will be returned to owner at owner's expense or disposed of.
