  1. I am so excited to find this website. I live in Southern California and I source and process fleeces at my “micro mill” fiber shed. I teach choosing, processing, dyeing, spinning, felting, weaving, and knitting. We have regular meetups at my place for folks who would like to learn various fiber arts. I have three rescue llamas (that is how it all started), rescue wild burros, and mustangs. There is a very committed slow foods locavore organic community here and it is a great place to encourage thinking and living local. I source llama and alpaca locally because there are lot’s of small growers but sheep have been more elusive. I have been sourcing from small growers I meet at livestock shows and fiber festivals in New Mexico, Oregon, Montana, Wyoming, and Northern California. I would love to know more about my local small growers but haven’t been able to find them. We have a great k- 12 Montessori farm school in our town (one of four working farm schools in the country) and I will be teaching sheep to shawl there this winter. In the spring, the agriculture director and I will be buying lambs to start an ongoing sheep to shawl project for the school. We also have a great resource for natural dyes with a wealth of chocineal, eucalyptus, pomegranate, wood, and madder. The Huntington Gardens has an amazing dye garden and docent. I am so sorry I missed this weekends festivities at Point Reyes, heard about it too late. I am looking forward to joining and getting to know everyone. Mary

      Hi Mary, Thanks so much for getting in touch. The work you are doing in your fibershed is impressive. Have you heard about one of our affiliate groups, the LA Fibershed? We will be posting videos from last weekend’s wool symposium, so you can get a look at what we are up to. Look forward to meeting you at a future event.

    Thanks for getting back to me. Yes I see LA and San Diego have fibersheds. It seems funny but the geographic travel distance from the IE is really huge. We are a very rural area and cover a large area. I am going to send in a application for our own IE area and hope we can join. We have a great fiberr community but it can always get better. Mary
