Wild Fibers is dedicated to promoting and protecting all aspects of the natural fiber industry. We travel the world, interviewing shepherds from Alaska to Afghanistan, and we look at the changing world of processing, underscoring the need for sustainable practices. Our goal is to create a broader understanding of an industry that is as old as civilization itself.

You have to believe that every now and then something good can come from something bad, and that's just how I feel about The Eye of Fiber—An uncommon story from the around world.
When it became eminently clear that I wasn't going to be able to stray very far from my own backyard to produce this year's issue of Wild Fibers, the time was finally right to publish a book. After sixteen years of bouncing about the planet in search of all things wild and wooly, I have a perspective on how natural fibers have evolved over centuries in a way that is well... uncommon.
Designed to have a place on your coffee table, The Eye of Fiber is the perfect platform for so many... MANY... images, featuring more than just wild fibers, but a dedication to shepherds, animals, and artisans amidst stunning landscapes. It's got everything but a picture of the bowl of eyeballs served up to me in Kyrgyzstan.
Our 15th anniversary was so popular, our print copies are completely sold out. It's now available in digital format, something that we know will make our international readers wild with delight.

"THIS IS THE ONLY MAGAZINE MY HUSBAND AND I FIGHT OVER."
"I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE THE PLACES I HAVE BEEN WITH WILD FIBERS. I READ THE STORIES FOR YEARS AND THEN I STARTED GOING ON THEIR TOURS."
"I READ WILD FIBERS FOR THE STORIES, THE PICTURES, AND BECAUSE IT
ALWAYS MAKES ME LAUGH."
"To love what you do and feel that it matters how could anything be more fun?"
