Halls are decked with decorations resembling Christmas and after a long day of set-up, the Fibreshed team is ready for the public to peruse its display.
Local fibre is carded and hand-dyed with pokeberry, Japanese indigo, and other local plants giving a lovely variety of colours including yellows, greens, blues, brilliant pinks, and luscious burgundy shades to the rovings.
The rovings are spun into yarn which is then processed into a variety of saleable products by weaving, knitting, and or felting. All items are juried and only items made with local fibre, and hand-dyed with dyes made from local plants are qualified to receive certified Fibreshed tags.
It has been a successful year and even the ANWG bears are happy to be on display for sale.
