Courses

Cost for all courses are payable in advance, in full. If you are interested in a course but unsure, please contact us and we can arrange to send you more information. We do keep a backup list if a course is full and will contact you (on a first-come, first-served basis) if there is a cancellation and a place becomes free. It is not possible to accept new course members on the day.

When you have been accepted on to a course, we will contact you a couple of weeks in advance with further information including directions to the course venue. All materials are provided. You may wish to bring a notebook and pen to take notes.

Fibre Processing

Fleece should be clean, dry and free from moth infestation, faeces, large amounts of straw/vegetation, felting, or foreign matter.
Fleece should be delivered to us by prior arrangement in clean sealed identifiable bags.
A covering letter with the owner’s and animal details and processing requirements should be attached to the outside of one of the bags.
Fleeces may be delivered by carrier or personally (by prior appointment).

Fleeces which are subject to moth infestation will be destroyed. Where cleaning and grading of fleece has not been completed by the customer, a further charge may be levied.
When the nature of the fleece prevents us from producing the product requested by the customer we reserve the right to charge on a pro rata basis for the processes completed.

We reserve the right to refuse any fleece which we feel is of unsuitable quality.

A deposit of £10.00 per fleece should be enclosed with the covering instructions.
On completion of the processing an invoice will be supplied and payment must be cleared before goods are dispatched.
All invoices must be paid within 14 days.
Completed orders may be collected in person or sent by carrier at the customer’s expense.
Any order not collected within six weeks without prior arrangement will be forfeit.
Payment may be made by cash, cheque or bank transfer. Cheques will require clearance prior to collection or dispatch of goods.
