I went to the Spanish Festival in downtown Santa Fe on my one day off.

The visual culture here is just so different than the old protestent greenery of the north, it never fails to shock me a little bit.  I met this amazing woman selling beautiful weavings and yarn she had spun in a mill that she built herself in Mora, New Mexico.


You can see the indigo dyed yarn I bought in the lower right.  She told me that I could work for her in the mill, picking alpaca fleeces apart, before they are spun.  Wouldn't that be amazing? Here's the website for her mill: http://www.tapetesdelana.com/ 

Who knows what the future holds.  But in the meanwhile, fibers!
