2016 Youth Fiber to Fabric

The mission of the Mountain and Valley Wool Association (MAVWA), producers of The Wool Festival at Taos, is to promote fiber from all fiber bearing animals and to pass on the rich history of the fiber-related crafts to the next group of fiber enthusiasts. The Youth Fiber to Fabric project helps to fulfill this mission by teaching youth all the steps involved in taking raw fiber off the backs of animals, through to the completed wearable item. If you know a young child that would be interested in learning this process, we can provide step-by-step guidance.
