The Adirondack Fibershed has been launched as an affiliate of the original Fibershed concept in northern California, a non-profit organization. The motto is "local fiber, local dye, local labor" and the goal is to bring the same awareness many have about the benefits of local and sustainable food to fiber, textiles, and clothing. The evolution of the Fibershed will depend on what resources, skills, and interests are discovered in the Adirondacks and what collaborations take shape. Producers of fiber, yarn, cloth, and garments will have access to an Adirondack Fibershed logo to show that their goods are grown and produced in the Adirondacks.
