Episode 93: Commercial Scale Local Wool Carding and Spinning with Mary Jeanne Packer of Battenkill Fibers
This week on the podcast I'm speaking with Mary Jeanne Packer owner of Battenkill Fibers in Greenwich, New York. Battenkill Fibers is the last standing wool fiber mill in New York offering commercial scale carding and spinning for fiber farms and manufactures of yarn and fiber products. Mary Jean Packer is involved in a number of farm to fabric initiatives including the Hudson Valley Textile Project. She advocates for locally sourced and sustainability processed fibers and I am excited to share our conversation! Comment below to keep the conversation going!
