WILD FIBERS MAGAZINE

The mission of this magazine is to promote all aspects of the natural fiber industry including everything from raising yaks in Tibet or cashmere goats in the United States, spinning camel hair in the Gobi Desert, to knitting with yarn made from buffalo fiber, with specific emphasis on sustainable practices and cultural preservation, and the importance of the human touch.

Gotland's Lord of the Lambs - fanciful and fuzzy, the Gute is Sweden's oldest sheep breed and not to be upstaged by its popular descendant, the Gotland.
