In April of 2012, Julie Jenson opened Echoview Fiber Mill, a 17,000 square foot facility for processing raw fiber from animals including goats, alpacas and llamas. She was inspired to build a textile mill to make a positive difference and help small farmers find an alternative source of income to growing tobacco.

Echoview is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Gold certified mill in the country with 196 solar panels supplying half of their summer electricity. Farmers bring their animals’ fiber to the mill after shearing and choose how they would like the fiber processed. The fiber is washed, spun into yarn and made into products such as blankets and socks using ethical and sustainable practices. The company also offers retail space which is open week-days. The facility sells wool dryer ball and Zen mats and has recently added baby blankets and ladies’ scarves to their textile process.

Join us for a tour of this state-of-the art facility which includes a stop at their retail shop.
