Here's another discovery from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival!
Llamajama and the friendly, vivacious Meredith Kubicki or Meredith1855 as she's known on Ravelry. I encourage you to stop by and see her site!

The 1855 Fiber Company, of which Llamajama and Ghost Knitters are sister handknitting companies, celebrate International Cooperative Day the first Saturday of July every year. It's a day that celebrates awareness of cooperatives, promoting the movement's successes, as well as its shared ideals of solidarity, economic efficiency, equality, and world peace.

Llamajama, as well as Ghost Knitters allow member-owned, democratically-managed cooperatives in the Andes to earn a steady living spinning, dyeing, knitting and other traditional fiber crafts in isolated communities. A portion of the profits is reinvested into the community, providing funds for public health programs and training.


Their use of plant based dyes are not only earth-friendly and organic, but they are also appropriate for many knitters who are sensitive to chemical dyes.
For additional info go to
ICA or contact Meredith directly at

I'm going to be dreaming up an eco-friendly project with the yarn I purchased from them - I know it will be something wonderful with all the good vibes in this yarn...get lot's of fiber with Llamajama! Hey, don't laugh, that will be in your head all day to remind you to check out their site! ;)
Knit 1 for the Road coming soon to Amazon!
