The Wool Scouring Co-op is an outgrowth of the New Franklin Society of Yolo Country and follows society's interest in energy conservation through the development of a small-scale scouring machine. The Co-op provides growers with a needed resource to process wool on an individual basis. Membership in the Co-op is $25.00 per year. We use a gentle, non-ionic detergent for washing which easily washes out of the wool. The wool is air dried and delivered to the carding and spinning mill, Yolo Wool Products. The Co-op has now relocated to Woodland at the same address as Yolo Wool Products.
At Yolo Wool Products, we use equipment purchased from Eastern Woolen Mills and have the capabilities for both worsted and woolen carding and spinning. We can card your wool into sliver (a 1-2 inch thick strand of wool for handspinning), or batting (a sheet of wool in varying thicknesses to order, used for comforters, quilts, felt making, or stuffing). Combed rovings and pencil roving are available for those wishing a smoother, more worsted style preparation, and French combed top for a truly worsted spinning preparation. We can spin your wool into single and two ply yarns in a large range of sizes. Please call or write to discuss yarn sizes, fiber blends, etc.

We also sell these same products made from wool and other fibers produced by our own sheep and those of local wool growers. The products may be ordered by e-mail, phone, or regular mail. Payments accepted by check, money order, MasterCard, Visa, or PayPal. See price list for further information.

We can do custom orders as well as wholesale to businesses.

Our goal is to provide a market for American woolgrowers, especially those raising rare and exotic breeds of fiber producing animals. Our products are organic as we do not add any chemicals other than soap for scouring.
