CNY Fiber Resource Guide

CNY Fiber Artists & Producers assembled a Resource Guide in 2014 to assist festival visitors and others who were seeking information about sources of fiber, fiber animals, fiber equipment, mills, fiber processing, finished products and other services related to fiber animals and fiber arts. 

Although a few of the listings may be dated, we are happy to make it available for download here.  

We are also happy to provide below a list of the 2019 festival sponsors and members of CNY Fiber Artists & Producers, organized in categories for the products, animals, and services they offer.   You can search for categories or for specific products or services.
