Fleece to Garment
Article on the Blog The Get-It-Done Girl
A skilled handspinner and weaver, Robin Chapin Pilatti works with local wool in Willits, CA. Starting from the raw fleece, she spins, weaves, and finishes all her pieces, beautifully displaying the land, animals, and culture of Northern California. Fleece to Garment is her locally owned and operated business in the heart of Mendocino County, California. Robin sources local fleece and takes it from raw fleece to beautiful creation using a multi-step process that includes washing, dying, carding, and either felting or spinning and weaving. The entire process is done off-grid by hand on upcycled and recycled equipment.
