For the serious Wild Fibers devotee, the premiere issue is a fascinating touchstone to the magazine's initial vision focusing on the origin of natural fibers and the numerous ways they can serve to sustain man, from therapy animals to high-priced camelids.
The premiere issue of Wild Fibers offers an in-depth look at the history of the musk ox, the effect of SARS on the Chinese Cashmere market, the unusual benefits of agritourism, cautionary words from Michelle Walsh, DVM, about your livestock's waistline, a beautiful cashmere knitting pattern, and the beginning of the back page anecdotes before they migrated to the back page. It is also a stunning example of what happens when you produce a magazine without employing a copyeditor!
