Meet the Maker ~ Fern Fiber
Nikki and Maria are mountain mamas who met through their love of plants many years ago. Their lives have continued similar paths through their families, their love of nature, and the desire to roll around in soft fleeces, knitting and spinning! Fern Fiber believes in small farms and sustainable fiber. Fern Fiber strives to dye wool that is ecologically raised and processed without the use of harsh chemicals. They support their local community and work closely with fiber and flower farmers, mushroom gatherers, and local companies of the Appalachian Mountains. If they are not gathering materials themselves from their local forests and gardens, they are getting to know the people who are. In the majestic mountains they call home, ferns grow abundantly in the forests and along sparkling woodland streams. In spring, as the ferns unfurl, tiny new green growth appears. These new leaves represent rebirth, abundance, and connection to the earth. As they gather local herbs, flowers, mushrooms, and barks they think of this earth connection and the way it is portrayed and painted in their yarns. They began their journey as gardeners and herbalists, aligned to the changing seasons and cycles of nature. They delight in using this knowledge of the natural world in their fiber and art.
