From 2005-2018 Morning Star Fiber was focused on learning the performance of different fibers and using our equipment to provide the best quality product and customer service we could based on those qualities. The pricing structures were based on our production costs so knowing exactly how a fiber will respond going through the mill and what it wants to make was critical to accurately quoting you on our cost.
Our pricing structure was based on cost per pound unless otherwise indicated. Minimum yarn lots had to be 6 pounds or more. A lot was considered one fiber type to a specific product type – if you wanted two different colors of yarn to the same product type these were considered two different lots this included two different colors plyed together.
We encouraged our customers to create a customer profile, read, sign and return our “Terms & Conditions/Service Agreement” which covers customer responsibilities and mill responsibilities. This should be standard practice with any mill.
In order to ensure that you knew what product type your fiber was best suited for, we have developed specific requirements for each product line that we ran, which can be found in our document titled “Evaluating Your Fiber for Best End Use”.
Last but not least, if you had any questions regarding your fiber, lot size or product type requirements, you could call us direct and talk with the owner or email them.
