Thank you for all of the information posted on this thread about the Vancouver Island Fibreshed. I have spoken with Lynda Drury of the Vancouver Island Fibreshed initiative, and have visited the new wool mill in Saanich. I am working on an article for Country Life in BC, and as a sheep producer (and fibre producer with a container full of wool) I am hopeful for anything that keeps us from wasting this resource. I would love to have a locally-woven rug or blanket, but as a farmer I do not have the time or skills. We all need to work together and support each other. Thanks again for such an informative thread.
