What a wonderful evening we had at Parker River Alpaca Farm! Olivia – did you check to make sure Milo was still there after we all left?
I wanted to share a link to the Fibershed Project, which has made me somewhat obsessed with building my own local wardrobe (woe is me that I don’t live closer to Sally Fox). I would highly recommend starting from the beginning and reading forward so that you can experience the project as it develops. You can do this by clicking on the archive tab in the upper right corner and selecting the earliest link from March of 2010.
The project focuses on a wardrobe created entirely within 150 miles of the author, Rebecca Burgess’s, home in California. Her garments are grown, processed, dyed, knit, woven and so on by a group of contributors in the same region. I am smitten.
