This project is using Flexible funding and will receive all pledges made by 5:51pm 15th May 2017

My dream is to set up a zero carbon micro mill that focuses on all stages of the fabric, from the fibre production to the finished garment. It will be both a working mill and a resource centre for information and to learn new skills.  The intention is to set it up so that the it has a zero carbon impact. This will include using minature solar for any essential electricity but mostly natural light and entirely hand driven machines.

Materials for use will be sourced locally and sympathetically, including both plant and animal fibres and local foraging resources are used for dyestuffs.

The money pledged in this crowdfunder will go some way to providing the starting blocks to power futher funding developments.

Thank you for taking the time to read and pledge my dreams
