A Botanical Dyery

A Botanical Dyery

Lodi, WI

Using as many locally sourced, foraged dyestuffs, I dye fibers (which I also hope to start sourcing as locally as possible) to make wearable and functional items for sale as part of the slow fashion movement. I use that space to help expand the understanding of becoming more sustainable in our fiber industry and to invite others to learn natural dyeing. I would love to see availability of both locally sourced dyes and fibers grow in our fiber shed areas and am willing to support that effort. My website is in the process of being built.

Leaf Livestock: Gordon & Anne Sammons

Geneseo, IL

I’m Anne of Leaf Livestock. The Shepherd & I are located in NW Illinois & we raise some pretty sweet Natural Colored sheep with Columbia and Rambouillet genetics. We have also raised Polypays for over 20 years. We harvest around 1,000 LBS of fiber a year, and we have various mills around the Midwest create yarn, combed top, roving, rug yarn, sock yarn, pillows, and bedding. I enjoy making batts with our fiber. I also spin and weave with our fiber. I’m intrigued by natural dyeing and I experiment with creating colors on our yarn with different plants grown on our farm or by using kitchen scraps.
