Alyssa Shae's Profile
I am a student and work part-time as a grassroots organizer. All my life I have held responsible environmental standards and for the past 7 years extended it in many directions, most notably animal rights. As a practicing vegan wool was always a big disgust, however as a fiber fanatic I wanted to try my hand at spinning, and do so with the knowledge that the animals had received proper love and care. Since I have invested in a Lendrum wheel and an Ashford carder. I still follow a vegan diet and lifestyle in every regard except fiber. For my spinning project I seek all natural and cruelty-free protien fibers. As a result I buy raw wool and alpaca from small ethical farms to hand-process and use in my fiber products.
Another important componet of my store is that at least 10% of all sales are donated to charity: water to help fund the creation of wells in needed areas as well as sanitation…
