Fiber Processing at Six Paca Farm
Six Paca Farm offers processing of natural fibers (alpaca and llama fiber, wool and mohair to name a few). Our state of the art wash system from New Zealand, and our semi-worsted carder from Italy allow us to produce award winning yarns for ourselves and others.
To prepare your fiber for processing, skirt your fleece and download the fiber processing form. Place an instruction form in each bag.
Fiber may be dropped off at the mill (by appointment) or shipped to us.
If you are dropping off fiber, the address of the mill is 25 Stockhouse Rd, Bozrah, CT.
Please call 860-204-0386 to schedule your appointment
When shipping fiber, please use 38 Bozrah St, Bozrah, CT 06334 as the shipping address.
