Commissions

A timeless keepsake created for you using fibre from the animals you love and cherish.

TurnAcre works with you to plan, design and create your commission art, be it wearable or decorative. 

Bespoke work can include personalisation and/or items from around your farm, animals or home.

Our services include taking the raw wool/fibre from people and hand processing it into a variety of yarns and products. Have a look in our gallery and explore the wide variety of creative options available which will hopefully spark your imagination.

 

Some customers like handspun yarn and then create finished articles themselves while others prefer I take care of the whole process from raw wool to finished article. Prices from £4.50

 

We always sample the wool soon after it arrives with us and let you know the findings. Unless you know how you want the wool spinning - as in different thicknesses and textures - we can create some samples and send them to you to see and feel with costings.

 

The costs for spinning depends upon the preparation needed such as combing and carding etc and the weight of yarn such as DK, aran, chunky etc. For example 100g of 2 ply super chunky textured yarn costs £25. You can have part or full fleeces spun.    

 

Below is an extract from our customer contract for your information also.

 

We hope this answers your questions and gives you a little insight into fleece processing and hand spinning wool. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss it further or want to book TurnAcre to create treasured keepsakes for you using fibre from your precious amimals. Some samples of our work are below see more in our gallery.
