Growing Local Color & Interview with Lora Kinkade

In episodes 1-4, we followed the path of creating our yarns Pioneer, Flock, Dawn, and Ridge. These yarns are made from Sally Fox’s wool and are milled at Green Mountain Spinnery.

Now we’ve switched gears, and are following the path of how our yarn Gather is created - in episode 5, you can hear Lani Estill talk about growing the wool, in episode 6, Rob teaches us about milling Gather and gives us insight to how he incorporates sustainability into the milling process, and now in episode 7 - we hear from Lora Kinkade, the farmer who grew dye plants for us this past Summer which were used in the Lookbook collection of yarn and patterns.

In this episode, first, I speak with Kristine Vejar the owner of AVFKW, and then I share an interview with organic farmer and sheep shearer, Lora Kinkade.
