NEAFP Moving

Please excuse our NEAFP Note radio silence over the last two months. While working through our busiest August & September we also began the process of moving over to our new mill! In September 2012 we moved to our current location. Due to the volume of fiber coming in for processing, the amount of products going out to farms across the country & bringing in more manufacturing processes under our own roof, we quickly found ourselves restricted by the size of our building by the Fall of 2014. At the end of last year we began looking for a new home to grow into over the coming years so we can spend more time growing with your needs and less time organizing to find space to operate the day to day.

Over the last several weeks we have begun moving over to our new 45,000 sq. ft building and last week was our first full week of sorting and order fulfillment out of our new space.
Order Fulfillment

Sorting & Baling

Yarn & Felt Storage
In the coming weeks we also will be moving over sewing, product labeling & packaging.
Future Sewing, Labeling, Packaging
Once we get through the Fall & Winter busy season and plumbing & electric are complete, dyeing & finishing will also be moving over.
This space is an instrumental piece in getting back ahead of the "new normal" of fiber coming in, products going out, as well as bringing in new capabilities and services to help continue to grow the fiber side of your business. We look forward to sharing it with you all in the years to come!

Two New Hats Available Now!

Last year we started introducing new products that showcase our first alpaca blend yarn using SURI alpaca fiber. We are excited to add two new products that showcase SURI alpaca fiber and it's unique attributes. This yarn creates a soft hand and gives a beautiful base for the design pattern colors to really pop off these two new hats.

The Snowflake Pom Pom Hat

The Alpaca Fleck Beanie

Both of these hats are now available!

With the volume of fiber coming in this year and moving during our busy season, our fiber sorting has been playing catch up over the last couple of months. We apologize for the delay. All farms that have submitted fiber to a collection point in queue to be sorted can place orders now utilizing that fiber. Just mention it in Customer Notes and your order will be released at the fiber price point!

OREGON still collecting fiber!
We are dragging our feet for a couple of procrastinating farms so there is still time to get your fiber to the Oregon collection point in the next couple weeks before we make trucking arrangements!
Currently Being Sorted:
VA's two collection point's fiber will be completed in the next week or so, expect to receive your updates shortly!
ON Deck Circle:
NY, WA, and IN fiber collections are all on deck to be sorted through next. Expect your account updates over the next 3 to 4 weeks.
Completed Sorts:
Fiber U, WI, NH & VT collections have all been completed and accounts updated. Check your FiberBank statements for the latest updates!
