Take our fiber producer survey!
Do you raise fiber animals or grow fiber plants like cotton and flax? Help grow a bigger, better fiber supply chain in North Carolina by taking our Fiber Producer Survey!
Piedmont Fibershed wants to find out how much and what kind of fiber is being produced in our region. This information will make it possible for us to identify challenges in our local supply chain and get funding to solve them.
