On-the-ground

  • Skein is planting indigo, with the intention of being one of the participants in Fibershed’s indigo fermentation floor. Participants will take home the percent share of indigo dye they put into the fermentation in dried indigo. Kinal helped a group build the fermentation floor in Nicasio, CA in Marin County. [link to blog and photos of an indigo dyeing session.]
  • Skein has been leading the earliest stages of a feasibility study to ascertain whether a flax—to-linen practice—once a staple of every rural community in the United States, along with wool—can be brought back to life, using sustainable energy (wind, water or sun) at the watershed level.  See Destiny Kinal’s recent article in the Spring 2015 issue of Mickie Hart’s Planet Drum “Pulse” titled Ancestral Practices from the 19th Century: Fresh Ore for Reinhabiting Our Homelands Today.
