About the Network

My photo
is dedicated to supporting Ohio fiber producers and artists, and to developing awareness of the diversity and beauty of Ohio farm yarns and fleeces. Our fiber farmers raise alpacas, llamas, sheep, goats and angora rabbits for their beautiful fiber. Our fiber artists dye, hook, spin, knit, weave and felt the most beautiful fiber art you've ever seen. Knitters, check out our Ravelry group on-line. You can also follow us on Facebook. We're hoping you make 2012 the year you decide to go on an Ohio Fiber Diet by supporting your local fiber producer or artist! We don't think you'll be disappointed.

  1. Ohio used to grow hemp, a natural textile that requires no pesticides - as did Kentucky and most other states in the region. It is of great value economically but sadly got bad press from Hearst etc. and now states are not allowed to grow it - it is sad to see the US having to import its textiles and lose jobs to overseas. For this reason, there is a petition to the White House, from a Texas hemp clothing company - up at www.minawear.com/about-us/
