    Fiber sources

    On our first site, we had a nice list of sources for fiber from vendors we could feel good about supporting, so I am going to try and post some of these here for now until we get our Marketplace up and running. Feel free to add more in the comments below!

    I'm so glad to see Inglenook Fibers on this list... I have several gorgeous braids in my stash. Macrina is such a lovely person and her fiber is always outstanding. I hope we can get her to join over here, as I miss the discussions in her group.

      Was she on our first Unraveled site? Or are you referring to Ravelry? If she wasn't on our first site, it would be good to reach out to her and ask if she'd like to join us..We're over 3000 strong already! I can ask our Admin to connect with her if you're not comfortable with it. If she knows we're putting up a marketplace and realizes how many people are already here, she might be willing to join us.

      rkennell, I don't know if she joined the first Unraveled or not; I was referring to her Ravelry group. I will have to hunt for her email, as I used to communicate with her primarily through Ravelry. If our Admin wants to personally invite her, I think that would be a great idea too, as he could better explain the vendor features to her.

      I'll send her name to him and maybe when he has a spare moment, he can invite her. Thanks!

    Thanks for adding me to your list! We have a herd of 33 huayaca alpacas whose fiber we have turned in to roving and spun into yarn. Hope you will take the time to look at my Etsy store check out my Blog about life here on our ranch.
    Happy trails, Diana

      It is hard, you're so right, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy, so we'll keep plugging forward!

    I recently got some beautiful fiber from Caroline at Greenwood Fiberworks. It looks like she is currently working on setting up her webpage https://greenwoodfiberworks.com/ fiber for spinning right now can be found in her Etsy store http://greenwoodfiberworks.etsy.com/

      Her fiber looks absolutely amazing! Thanks for sharing her link. Hopefully she'll consider setting up here on our marketplace when it is up and running.

    A new place to look for fibers is the whole SE2SE (Shave Em to Save Em) initiative to preserve threatened breeds of sheep. We have a thread going for this and there is also a FB page for this. A whole new fun way to to feed your addiction. So yes, I'm officially an enabler.

      Yarnyentrechat and Carlota, Could ya'll move your discussion over to the SE2SE thread? It would be great to have it there so the rest of us in SE2SE would benefit from your discussion! I've just received my first 2 fibers and I'm eager to learn from those who are becoming experienced with different fibers! Thanks!
