I first ran across the idea of a local fibershed in June 2016 when I stumbled upon the 150 mile wardrobe video. My imagination was hooked immediately and I began exploring the fibershed in my area.
Now that I’ve moved to Colorado, it is time for me to recenter my mental map on my new local fibershed: Mountains & Plains Fibershed. I’m very much looking forward to getting to know more about the farmers, ranchers, mill operators, natural dyers, spinners, weavers, felters, designers, and knitters in my area.
As I explore the area and get to know some of my local folks, I’ll feature them here.
