All these glorious yarns, rovings, tops and fleeces we use to create our textiles and artwork come from somewhere. If you’re like me, you are very curious about a fibre’s back story. Where are these farms located? Who are the people caring for all these fibre-producing animals? How do they incorporate sustainability into their farms? How did they got hooked on fibres and how big is their personal stash?
For answers to these questions and many more, I invite you to take a peek at the growing list of local farmer and producer profiles from the Upper Canada Fibreshed and beyond. Each profile gives you an insider’s look at fibre production, as well as pertinent information like location, contact information, materials produced and materials for sale.
Remember - These are friendly folks so if you’re in the neighbourhood definitely give them a shout.
