Yes, as a matter of fact…

…I am a fiber snob.

Mind you, I’d like not to be.  This being a fiber snob is a pricey business.  (This is/was true in my fabric snobberies too; I used to specialize in almost 100% silk wedding gowns — I think every woman ought to have the experience of wearing all silk at least once in her life.)  It would make my life much less expensive if I wasn’t addicted to silk, merino wool, cashmere and such.

But I am.  I like that it’s natural fibers and I do try to find “green” versions of most fibers when I can.  (But I have to balance that with at least some kind of attempt to make sure I’m not breaking the bank, as well.  And yes, I do know that there are a jillion factors that go into making green things not quite as green as they sound or that give that little skein of yarn a carbon footprint into the size 50s…)  Synthetics just don’t keep me as warm, breathe as well as natural fibers, even when they feel as nice to the hand.

I also like trying to support people like myself; creative people who are trying to make a living doing the things that they love.  (I’m glad that there’s people out there who love things like accounting, but I’m not one of them.) Dyers, spinners, weavers, makers, etc.

So at least one category of this blog is going to highlight handmade or helpful products that I’ve found by these folks, especially natural ones.  I know this is enabling, but we all have our faults.  Sorry.  :)

  1. These tips for insurance claim procedures are
    important. Use one of the online backup services to make
    doubly sure. Some will spend more time and energy on auto accident claims while others might want
    to handle workers compensation or accidental death cases
    instead.

  2. If the Christmas party invitation specifies “holiday casual wear” as the dress code, don’t reach for your jeans.

    Besides, you can also avoid the rush of people
    in choosing the best of trinkets at local shops and unusual price bargains- one can easily get the attractively unique
    fashion jewels at home at amazingly reasonable prices
    compared to the conventional shops. Have you ever
    had to turn down an invitation because you literally had “nothing to wear.

  3. Undergraduates – Fall – $ 18,372; Spring – $ 18,372 for a total of $ 36,744.
    Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.
    They rely on more 140 suppliers worldwide, with each
    region specializing in a certain type of clothing that it can manufacture at a competitive price.
