Spring (what we're having of it this year) is a time of great expectations at many of our member farms. All across Ohio, fiber farmers are anxiously awaiting the birth of lambs, kids, bunnies and crias.
Marcee Stephenson at Criation Station Alpaca Farm in Oberlin is no exception. Her first cria arrived on April 16th, an excellent young girl named TCS Allie Cat (below right), followed soon after by Pablo's Peruvian Cortez, a fawn colored male born April 19th (below middle).
About the Network
- The Ohio Natural Fiber Network
- is dedicated to supporting Ohio fiber producers and artists, and to developing awareness of the diversity and beauty of Ohio farm yarns and fleeces. Our fiber farmers raise alpacas, llamas, sheep, goats and angora rabbits for their beautiful fiber. Our fiber artists dye, hook, spin, knit, weave and felt the most beautiful fiber art you've ever seen. Knitters, check out our Ravelry group on-line. You can also follow us on Facebook. We're hoping you make 2012 the year you decide to go on an Ohio Fiber Diet by supporting your local fiber producer or artist! We don't think you'll be disappointed.
