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!
