As always, our Fabric Production Process starts with the purchase of Greasy (or Raw) Wool, from our Ranchers.
Batch 6 Greasy was purchased in October 2019 by Private Treaty with Ranchers and Advisors Bob Padula and Andy McMurry. Mike Corn, also a Rancher and WeatherWool Advisor and partner at Roswell Wool, oversaw the sampling, testing and weighing of the greasy wool, and served as financial intermediary.
Batch 6 weights:
- 4288 pounds (1945 kg) greasy; 15% from Padula's PM Ranch and 85% from McMurry's Genopalette Ranch
- 2681 pounds (1216 kg) clean fiber, for a yield of 62.52%, which is very high
Batch 6 was scoured at Bollman Industries in Texas, yielding 2681 pounds (1216 kg) of clean fiber. This is a fantastic yield of 62.52%!!
At this writing, the Batch 6 Clean Fiber is in the warehouse at American Woolen Company in Connecticut, and we have just begun the process of turning this fiber into Fabric.
Batch 6 will be 2/3 MidWeight Lynx Fabric and 1/3 MidWeight Drab Fabric.
