I am a white-passing Latina and my way in the fiber industry has been easy do to my privilege. I have not supported or promoted BIPOC fiber dyers and growers as I should have, and for that I am sorry.
I am listening, studying, and thinking a lot about what has been said over the past week.
Today I am starting a list of BIPOC fiber dyers that I will maintain here on my blog for spinners.
The list will include a link to each dyer's shop and a list of what they dye. More information on the dyer and the fibers will happen in upcoming reviews of their fiber.
