We are a family owned fiber processing mill based in Ukiah CA. We custom process locally sourced animal fiber for producers and farmers and supply locally sourced fiber products to artisans. Our mission is to grow the domestically sourced fiber economy while supporting every one along that supply chain with quality products that are good for the environment: the farmers, the producers, the artisans and the consumer.
Matthew Gilbert has been living and shearing in Mendocino County since he was 13 years old. He has sheared for handspinners for years and is enthusiastic about producing quality wool from our region. He is also a certified wool classer.
Sarah Gilbert has been interested in textiles for her whole life and researching and designing them for most of it. She has been handspinning since she was 15 years old when Mathew gave her an antique wheel that he'd restored for her and she spent all of her teen years meticulously researching and recreating historical garments. Sarah is the in-house yarn and textile designer; sustainable, beautiful and useful fashion and textiles are her passion.
