Recently some new customers have been disappointed to discover that we cannot accept fleece which has been treated with pesticides in the four months prior to shearing. 

Those who are willing have then chosen to wash the fleeces at home and then we can accept them as a significant proportion of the pesticide will have gone. For instructions on how to do this, please see our advice and information sheet.

So why, you may ask, should we work differently at the mill from at home?

Here is the explanation:
