Fourth annual Fibershed Wool & Fine Fiber Symposium

The Fourth annual Fibershed Wool & Fine Fiber Symposium will be held November 7th, 2015, at Point Reyes Station, California.
In addition to hands-on activities and demonstrations, there will be informative presentations on collaborations between fiber farmers and designers, as well as on carbon farming, soil carbon sampling and drought tolerant breeds.
The Fibershed Marketplace will offer an array of beautiful local fibers and handmade goods, on sale in the Dance Palace church building, as well as on the lawn (weather permitting).

Fibershed is a non-profit educational and research organization that develops regenerative textile systems that are based on carbon farming, regional manufacturing, and public education. We envision the emergence of an international system of regional textile communities that enliven connection and ownership of ‘soil-to-soil’ textile processes. These diverse textile cultures are designed to build soil carbon stocks on the working landscapes on which they depend, while directly enhancing the strength of regional economies. Both fiber and food systems now face a drastically changing climate, and must utilize the best of time-honored knowledge and available science for their long-term ability to thrive.
In 2013 Agathon Associates assisted Fibershed in the research and production of a Feasibility Study for a California Wool Mill.
