Blue Sky Fibers
Blue Sky Fibers is focused on their environmental impact and their environmental ethics. At Blue Sky Fibers, they have consciously crafted fibers. They know where all of their fiber comes from and who makes their yarn. They appreciate the experience of understanding the process behind knitting and other fiber arts, and think that the love of process should extend all the way to the source of the fiber.
Blue Sky works with alpaca and sheep herders in South America. The animals are raised and cared for as they have been for centuries. At shearing time the alpacas are herded and sheared, and then returned to graze again. The fiber is processed at central mills. There is no factory farming or cruelty involved.
Their yarn is dyed in large batches using low-impact dyes. These dyes are not organic but are formulated to have a lower impact on the environment than traditional chemical dyes.
